Done, done, and done

Fred was afraid to look...but notice his ears aren't covered, so no bad words were said.   ;o)

My grand-niece's quilt is done!  I found the perfect lavender-purple oh-so-soft flannel for the back.

Lessons learned:
1.  If you are going to quilt separate designs in the borders remember what those designs are. If you have to unroll a quilt to see what you did it does not re-roll as tightly.
2. Turning a quilt is not too difficult.
3. Professional long-arm quilts are worth every penny per square inch they charge. Quilting, even on a frame is hard work.

Matching pillowcase is done!

Vintage looking dishtowel is done! This is the little project I mentioned a few posts ago. I haven't embroidered in a long time. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy it.
Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...but wait, I have someplace to go. I was suppose to leave for my Mom's today, but the weather is truly frightful so I'll leave tomorrow instead. My car is all packed up so I can't drive anywhere, so I'm stuck in the house all day (not that I'd want to go out is this frightful weather). What to do, what to do...

I'm such a Grinch

Everyone is decorating their houses for the holiday, both inside and out.  Here's my Christmas tree:

Plugs into my computer, USB powered LED, changes colors. LOVE IT!

Okay, so maybe I have a few other Christmas decorations out, but this one is currently my fav.

Bah Humbug.

It's a top...a big top...

 I haven't quilted anything this big on the frame...

It should be interesting. If you hear any cussing and swearing it's probably me.
