This is to document my love of and obsession with fabric and quilts! The true, guilty story of buying "just a little bit more", of shopping at thrift stores for the extra large mens shirts to use in your next quilt..and yes..even eyeing up your best friends blouse wondering if she'd notice if you "borrowed" it and just how many 2 inch strips you could get out of it!

That's the name of this wallhanging that I made for my daughter and son in law, Jess and Greg. The pattern is by Gail Stalley. I modified the cats to look like their cats and they just LOVED it!
With the pre holiday preparations, that is really the only thing that I worked on the past month. Finding any sewing time was hard to do! I am now off until New Year's Day, and have grand plans on getting some things finished.
Yesterday I finished all the machine applique on my Starry Nights in Winter top and got the backing pieced and it is all sandwiched and ready to quilt.
In this pic, the applique is just pinned and fused down. Hoping to get it quilted and done tomorrow.
Not sure what is next on my list. I have 3 or 4 quilts all ready for backings to be pieced and to be sandwiched. I have LOTS more tops in various stages to be worked on. I always have the urge at this time of year to get more finishes on my list before the New Year, do you feel that, too???
Today is a sewing date with Shellie and Judy and I have no idea what I am going to work on. I am going to try to be good and NOT start anything new, but hey...ya never know!!!!
Hope you are enjoying a wonderful holiday season and I will post pics of the sew date later!!!
