My week of sewing has continued. I did stop and bake for Thanksgiving--two pumpkin pies and my first cheesecake--a chocolate chip decadent one to be exact! Plus, I took care of some Christmas shopping both in store and on-line. I finished piecing my border for my Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Quilt last night and just snapped a quick picture before I get it ready for quilting. This will be a sample for the BOM I am teaching next year of Lori Holt's Quilty Fun book.
This little snowman is going to be the label. He needs some embroidered arms and buttons.
I went to Joann's this morning to take advantage of their 50% off coupons and 60% off of the designer quilting fabric. This pink is so soft and I decided would be an excellent backing for the Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas quilt. I think I will just cross hatch quilt it on my Pfaff and then add on all the embellishments.
This gorgeous quilt arrived yesterday from Deborah in California for my mom's charity quilt drive. My picture does not do the colors justice--they are gorgeous. She also sent lovely fabric for the backing. My mom has 96 quilts completed enough to be donated to all the residents at two nursing homes in our town. She is also gathering more lap quilts for another nursing home for Christmas 2016!
It has gotten chilly in our neck of the woods, but we have had very little snow in our immediate area. Our surrounding mountains are covered and everyone is excited for ski season. It is cuddling weather for our dogs. Fergie, the puppy, loves to be between Lola and Bella with all three squeezed on one bed. I had to snap this picture through the window to actually catch her and Bella sleeping.
I will be keeping warm with some binding and hand quilting for Slow Sunday Stitching
