NYE mystery

This is Ann's NYE Mystery.  It is for  DD's room.  It is hanging on her wall, but I need to quilt it and  bind it. 

What a great way to spend NYE.  Quick and easy.

Thanks, Ann!

Merry Christmas to all

We had everyone over for dinner yesterday. It is so wonderful to have family around. Spent a day playing Mexican Dominoes, eating, laughing and enjoying each other.

I've not been doing lots of quilting lately. That is mainly due to family commitments. I have been cutting apart baby clothing to make 2 quilts out of the fabric, and that is taking lots of time.  The boys clothing is all cut, except for the sweaters.  Thinking I need to stabilize and then cut and sew immediately.  We shall see how this works.  I'm still working on the girls clothing.  Seems she has more fabric, so I'm not sure how the Mom wants to handle the sizing of the quilts.

This Christmas tree wall hanging was going to a teacher, but didn't get done in time.  So, I am ahead of the game for next year.  These are fun to make.  I hope to try a different tree wall hanging for next year.

I quilted this one on my DSM because the backing was just not the right size.  It was for a friend down the street.  Used gold thread and outlined the boxes and embellished some of the clothing.
Put together a gingerbread house.  Only problem, the roof didn't want to stay put.  LOL  Took us forever to get it to stay in place, but we prevailed!  DD enjoyed this project and all the baking we did Christmas eve.
