A Very Merry Christmas!!

My husband chose and bought 2 meters of this fabric....

And used 1½  meters as packing;
then used the other ½  a meter as gift wrap
to wrap one of my gifts...

How can you beat that?
I Love this Man!!


..it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..

Merry Christmas!!
Away in a MangerJesus is the Reason


007 ~ Windmills.....

I fell in love with this pattern here a while ago and had plans to make use of it the moment I saw it. The day we took pictures it was really windy so we had trouble getting a straight photo.

The bloggers world (and wealth) of information amazes me. I had made binding before and hand sewing just isn't something meant for me.....sew.... I sew my binding by machine, and Rita is fantastic with a machine sewn binding tutorial, which gave me another way of putting it together.

Matilda is always ready to help with the puzzle.

I tried something different, with stippling on the main body of the quilt, and separate stippling on the border.... not a good idea....Ready to bind; the quilting still presents a challenge for me......
but that's how we learn??



On the Spur of the moment;
...An Apron for a friend.

I was happy with how it turned out &
I expect to be making more of them

alas a perfect way to use up fabric.
