Happy-Happy-Happy

Everyone here is happy..................  I finished the Christmons for my Sunday school class Saturday afternoon.....  Just in time................


I am really pleased with how they came out..............

I really wanted to make enough to have my own Christmon tree this year but I can see that will not happen.....  So many other things going on...................

The next big thing is to get ready for the tutorial I am supposed to present to the Guild.............

Busy, busy, busy

Each day seems to take a life of its own........  No matter what I plan that is never what I get to do.......

Just a few finishes for this month..........  One pair of socks for Lu,  one scarf for Cassie, one baby blanket for Georgina and a dozen baby hats for the hospital..........




Now on to the next project..................

Design Wall Monday.........

Just a bit of quilting done this week.............  I ordered some fat quarter packets from Keepsake Quilting to make lap quilts for Kim's sisters...............  Since the holiday season is fast approaching I thought I might see if I could get them done for this year...............

No, I have not completed assembly of the last two quilts I started but this one jumped to the head of the line........

I did finish the Christening Gown and now I am working on Christmas Ornaments again.............  Oh and a pair of socks............VBG

A Finish as Last..................

I was asked to make a Christening Gown for a dear friends new granddaughter.........  She bought the materials and I did the stitching................

All stitched by hand except for putting the neck band on.......  That I trusted to the machine...........



Hand smocked.......with lace on the neck and the sleeves..............



Embroidery detail on the front panel.............



And lets not forget the hat.........



You will have to pretend that the brass pineapple is a baby head............

Now back to making Christmas ornaments............
