We decorated for Christmas today:) Of course we were hot and melting but got it all done:) Used almost everything I have kept over the years:) I did a big purge a few years back. No real tree or even a big tree anymore. The babies... Jax and Gemma and even KoKo have never seen a Christmas tree. So we will keep up the tradition of a small tree with indestructible ornaments:)
We also started no grownup gifts last year... sure makes the season SO much easier and happier!!! No stress!!! Of course I have a few items for good friends and the granddaughters:)
In our Bee we do a sock exchange. You buy a pair of really fun socks and stuff one with goodies:) We had SO much fun with that last year!!!!
In our lunch bunch group we do a cookie exchange so I have to bake 6 1/2 dozen cookies next Sunday for that:)
Did you buy a lot of stuff on Black Friday? I found the Insta Pot for almost half price on Amazon so got that really quick! It arrived today:) I also bought some yardage for my hexie quilt from Fat Qtr Shop since everything for 20% off. I bought a few machine embroidery designs also. Wonder what will be on sale Cyber Monday??
I received Dazi's spring late Wednesday and then on Thursday we installed and I was back up and running on Friday:) So I do have some quilts to show:)
Judy Mc made this sweet Chrrstmas quilt.
It was a Thangles Buck a block from a now closed Quilt Shop nearby.
I got to play with feathers:)
Another Judy Mc Thangles quilt.
The shop owner had either Western or reds... I did the reds one:)
I did special free motion in the borders and then loops in the rest... like rope:)
Had to piece her backing but still looks neat!
Ruth Ellen and her grand son made this quilt. I think it's Mine Craft... a video game.
She wants squares all over in green and then the white stitching in the "guy" is glow in the dark thread. Dazi was o too happy with it but since it was just a bit we pushed on:)
White backing really shows the squares.
More Christmas ornaments I made.
My wool penny rug that I bought in Houston 3 years ago is all finished:)
Used a batik for the backing instead of their boring black.
Closeup of quilting and hand stitching:)
More ornaments... am working on my favorite right now... a kitty!
The December wool hanging of the month all done:)
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are getting ready for Christmas!!! I am almost.... 6 more quilts... caught up with this years customers quilts:) Thanks again to those that let me push theirs to next year so I could meet the deadline:)
Have a great week!!!!
