Only 1 more post before Christmas:)

Can you believe Christmas is just 12 days away??? I will ask the age old question: Where has the time gone??? Don't you remember as a kid it took like forever for any holiday to come!! Now it is here in a few days:) ha!

Well I am SO loving the no gifts attitude this year! No stress what so ever!

Of course our Bee had the cutest stuffed sock exchange. You buy a pair of socks and stuff with goodies between $5-$10. And then we drew #'s and got our new socks:) What fun to see what everyone got!

Our Lunch bunch is doing a cookie exchange. I baked 7+ dozen pecan sandies for that:) When I come home I will have 6 dozen different cookies:) Should be fun!

I only have one more customer that is finishing a t shirt quilt and then I will be finished:) Well I will probably do a few of mine:)

Here is what I did get done this week:

Marylyn made this Disappearing Hourglass quilt.

It is a gift got her daughter. She always lets me play:)

Had fun with the whimsical feathers and lots of ruler work:)

Shelley made this Christmas Cathedral Window quilt.

She just didn't pull the fabric back for the window part. Instead she embroidered and appliqued on the blocks.

She let me play also:) All was free hand.

You can see the swirls in the border on the back.

Shelley's Dowton Abbey Cathedral Window quilt.

Another gift and also the windows were not pulled back.

                    Quilted pretty much the same except I made fancy feathers in the border.
My Bird Brain embroidered pillow for me:)

My Crabapple Winter embroidery for me:) I will need to unsew and put more stuffing in... I ran out:(
I discovered I only had 2 pillows on my trunk so now I have 4:)

Yes I am crazy! My next Hexie quilt will be scrappy! Having fun going through all the boxes and cleaning out!

These are the papers and templates for Lucy Boston Crosses. I will do them after the scrappy hexie and use my Civil War or Oriental fabrics.

Here are all the sections for Gravity all sewed and waiting to be made into the quilt. I have 3 sections done so far:) Hope to be all finished for the next blog update:) It is bigger then my design wall:)

It did get to 80 this past week and then last night/this early morning a cold front came through and it's in the 50's now:) The main thing is no more humidity!!!

Hope the weather is good where you are!!!
Finish up those Christmas projects but also take time to enjoy the season!

Oh, the hourglass quilt is beautiful, lucky girl getting that one. I have never made pecan sandies, but my husband loves those. Would you share your recipe?
