Feathers of course and love those lines in the triangles!
A bit of sunshine on the quilt.
And here is the backing. She had me machine sew on the binding and she will hand sew it down:) Was SO glad she let me push it back to after the Christmas quilts. I really got to take my time and enjoy the quilting. Great way to end the year!
A man's Chemo quilt  that I got as a kit from the guild.

Hi all,

This week just flew by but then I was really only home 1 day and that day I quilted... custom still not done but will be this week:)

Had Lunch bunch, visited with friend, errand day and then Bee. All were SO much fun!!!
Saturday we had an electrician come in and hang 2 new ceiling fans and put in a larger breaker box. And cleaned out more of MIL house... when the trash can is full we stop. Had 3 huge garbage bags and 1 box of stuff for Goodwill again. We also went to the Singing Tree concert. It was such a great way to get in the Christmas spirit!!!

Here is the tree.... the ornaments are people. They started with hand puppets then the choir and then Holly Tucker.Then the tree full of people:)
So while we had no electricity I worked on designing Project Linus tops with fabric I got at the Bee. Today I brought Judith... my featherweight in the house and sewed all 6 up:) Now they go to Pat for backs:)
The footballs were already made:) Yea!!!
Leftover fabrics that came with the fo…

December!

December has arrived and it's still warm... suppose to have a cold front come this week:) Sure is hard to be in the spirit when you are wearing shorts:)

Hubby and I went to HEB this morning and bought a real little Christmas tree:) We haven't had a  live tree for almost 5 years... Jax and Gemma were babies and there were concerns! Of course they may still pull it over but there are no breakable ornaments on it... they would just spill some water... we hope not though!

I started the custom quilt last week and got half way done with it... will only quilt a day or 2 this week as we have lunch bunch and Bee this week. Plus a good friend is down visiting and I want to spend sometime with her:)

Friday Pat and I headed to Sew Much More as Bianca had a fit when the power went off and on and she was asleep... I can't get her hoop calibrated to continue embroidering:( They said 2- 2 1/2 weeks:( UGH!!!! I have another angel and a new Santa to stitch out... and I need to finish my sno…

After Thanksgiving:)

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!! Hubby and  had our traditional pizza:) Of course today the kids and MIL came over for our big meal:) Was a fun day!!!

Also got our new AC/Heater installed this week and I have to say it is just amazing!!!! Our old one was 30+ years old so there is a considerable difference! Will see if if it affects the bill??? We have been running the heat at night and the AC was finally on today:)

I got some quilting done even though it was a short week:)

First up is Nancy's log cabin for her sister:)
She wanted it all girly:) haha!!! So feathers!!!
And swirls:) I love the way it turned out!!!
Here is the back... see those lovely feathers???:)
Another one from Nancy... tumblers!
Just a simple loop meander all over.
The backing matches:)
Judy Mc made this sweet Project Linus quilt.
All quilted with loops and stars.
Fun backing!
I got 3 man chemo kits and made 3 quilts. This is the first one all done:)

Well the temperatures have dropped again for a few days:) At least it does make it feel more like Fall.
Was a busy week so just a little quilting done. I only have 2 more Christmas ones to get done and then back to regular schedule...

Here is what I did get done:

Nancy had one more Wolf quilt to get done:)
This one is for her husband and she wanted to custom.
Hard to tell on the front
But you can definitely see the work on the back!

Pat made Linda a quilt out of flannel.
So soft and cuddly:)
Loops and hearts all over:)
We voted on our Guild's challenge entries and I won 3rd:) yea!!!
It had to have the purple fabric and fabric manipulation on/in it.
Was a good challenge as it made me go WAY out of my comfort zone!!


Found this sweet emb design and had to make a towel for Kathy J:)
Gifts for a few friends:) And one for me!!!!
My Chicken Butt towel:)
