Hi Everyboody!

Hope you all have all your Christmas shopping/sewing all finished:) I do!!!! Yea and it's all wrapped too!

The studio is officially closed for Christmas break:) I have one more quilt I am sewing the binding on and I will be completely finsihed! No pic of that one since it's just a bunch of squares so this is prob my last post for the year.

Here are pics of what I did work on this week....

First is a table runner from Linda C. She already had it made so I quilted it finished.
I got to play:)

Here is the back showing my playing:)

This is a family Apple tree quilt. A first for Pamela:) She and her mother and MIL worked on it for over a year and I got to quilt it for them.

You can really see the quilting on the backing. They will present it to the head of the family for her 82nd birthday:)
Here are the 3 Lil Twister wreaths I made
One for my MIL
One for me:)
One for SIL
Here is the Bunny Hill Snowman BOM all done except of course for the quilting:) There is always …

Hi everybody!

Christmas is sneaking up on us rather quickly:)

I am done except for a few gifts to finish up:) No tree this year as we will be in FL at the inlaws and with the babies I do not want to go through all the hassle of prying them out of the tree:) We always go buy a fresh one every year. Just love the smell!!! Don't have to much trouble with the needles dropping after we found out that after you get it setup and fill the container with water use a liter of clear soda instead like 7up. The tree sucks that up and the sugar keeps the needles on laonger:) That has really helped!!!!

Ok onto quilting:)

I had posted the first picture before I ran out of memory and am now about finished with the 3rd of the wreaths:) Am still addicted to the twister rulers:)
This is Christina's quilt. She used a panel in the center and then scraps all around:)
I just looped all over. Very colorful and a neat idea!

 Another one of Christina's. This is actually hers:) A cute table topper.

Woo Hoo I have memory:)

Ok so I finally got through and got to order more memory:) Now to catch you up on all the pictures:)
This is my adorable grand daughter Hayden wearing her Turkey shirt I made for her on Thanksgiving day:) Notice one of the babies hiding in the back:) She wore them out that day:)

This is Shelley's tennis quilt for her grand daughter:)                      I just looped all over with a variagated thread:)

Do you remember all the stockings I quilted for Christina? Well she brought these 2 over so I could show you how they turned out:) Cute!!!!

This is Linda's Gingerbread man quilt. She is still a beginner but did an awesome job!!!
          She let me play so there was a lot of outlining and thread play:)
                                                   This is the back.

Another quilt of Linda's. Love the idea of putting borders around a beautiful piece of fabric:)

  Here is a closeup of the thread play I did:)

Happy Hanukah!!! These are for the Clark family:) The ornament…

I also found a beautiful treadle machine on Freecycle for free:) I know!!!! Well hubby went and picked her up sight unseen and the cabinet is lovely! All the pieces are there and it had been redone so it is shiny...I guess shellaced or laquered but still looks authentic! The machine however has seen much much better days!!!! All the beautiful black paint is peeling and the decals can not be seen. There is also touches of rust:( Poor thing! So I am now on the hunt for a machine to replace that one.....Happy Hunting:) haha!!!
