Hi everyone, glad you could visit me.

I really enjoy a week when I finish some great pieces. I made one of these lap quilts last winter for my friend for christmas. I love this pattern which is a kit from connecting threads. This will be a Christmas gift for my daughter n law. I am sure she will love it. I also made this snowman pillow that fits a king size pillow. The only mistake I made on this piece is my background material and the snowmen were to close in color. This I will keep for myself.

I made this quilt a few years ago and finally got my friend Marjorie to quilt it for me. I felt this needed hand quilting as it has the look of a old quilt. She did a beautiful job. Thanks Marjorie. There is a lot of fabric that I have picked up on my vacations. This quilt will be a keeper

It looks great on my quilt rack.

I also finished some other winter pillows. I made four of these. Great Christmas gifts.  I was trying to find some Christmas buttons to add to the Christmas reefs but will have to wait to closer to christmas. They are hard to find this time of the year. 

The sewing room is cleaned up so wonder what I will get accomplished  next week. I do have a quilt to machine quilt which will be my goal to finish. I am also working on some cross stitch Christmas socks for my youngest son and his family. They lost theirs in a house fire. If anyone knows cross stitch I am doing the Shepard Bush patterns. I am doing them on alphan material so they will be a nice size. 
I should get lots finished this winter as I had to cancel our vacation on a cruise to the Panama canal. My husband had to have surgery and is unable to fly. I am debating whether to use my ticket and fly to victoria and visit my brother. I think it is a possibility as I will loose my ticket. This is the first time I never insured my flight tickets. I Had the rest insured. So we will save the cruise for a later date.

Well we are off to my grand daughters basketball game this afternoon. So hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful winters day.


  1. You are very welcome.....the other pieces look great too!

  2. Use those tickets! Hope your hubby is doing well. Cute projects.
