T'was the week before Christmas

Not long now and still quite a bit to do. I'm looking forward to a break over Christmas and New Year.

The week started easily enough with two cot quilts...
The first has Irene Steele's "Timeless Hearts" on it.....The second "Bubble Meander"

I spent a LONG time on the above quilt...which is just what you DON'T want at this time of year...using Joanne Knott's P2P tall Triangle Feathers...

Quilted this enormous bargello with Lisa Calle's "raindrops"

This one got Lorien Quiltings "Hollyhock"

Had to quilt the borders only of this quilt with Deb Geisslers "Rose Border"...The quilt had it's centre already quilted....dont normally do jobs like this as you never know really what you are taking on....was thinking while doing it...WHY did I agree to do it? Can't seem to say NO!

Thankfully ended the week with a mindless tacking job....

Saturday was the last Juniors class for the year....I have loved teaching the girls...hope they have a great Christmas.....

Have a great week.

Christmas Parties and Concerts.

The week began VERY hot....of course we were to attend the end of year concert for the school band that Miss Beth belongs to....EVERY year so far has been really hot on the day of the concert. LOVE sitting in the school hall under those conditions...but seriously it has been wonderful listening to her practice all those Christmas carols in the house...she has become quite good at the flute...

An E-2-E with Irene Steele's "Timeless Hearts"

A custom finished with a mixture of freehand outlining, ditching and background fills with some statler flowers...Designs by Vickie.

A semi-custom using Tammy Finklers log cabin block...turned out beautifully.

Finished the week yesterday by attending the "All About Sewing" christmas party.......have loved working there...great group of people.

Have a great week
