I'm excited to be working on a Christmas gift quilt!  I know it's late in the season to get it quilted in time, but I at least I can show the recipient the top!  Unless my daughter can do it.....We'll see!  Either way, it'll be great!

Dear Friends, 
This is my truth!


  1. Nice use of scraps. You have several nice projects underway. Hope your Christmas project comes together easily for you!

    1. Thank you, Sharon! Your Block 10 of the Machine Quilt Block Party has such nice colorway! So pretty!

      The Christmas quilt is going to be HST - my first! I'm not sure on the layout - will have to play with that after all the blocks are done. Admittedly, I am partial to pinwheels! Blessings!

      Take good care!

  2. So many pretty projects! The potholders are great! I love how the strips are on the diagonal, and I especially love the fabrics! It's so fun to be getting Christmas sewing done! I have a couple of things I want to get done too, but like you I have to keep them secret for now!

    Have a wonderful week! I so enjoy your list of projects and seeing your progress!!

    1. Thank you, Christine! Yes! It is so much fun to see everyone's projects and progress - Ha! P&P! Sometimes I crack myself up! :)

      Thank you for hosting such a wonderful party! I'm sure it's a lot of work! I'm learning so much from other "guests"!


  3. Gracious, but you've been BUSY! I adore your pretty little prayer garden area and the table cloth you made for the table is very sweet and fitting! Your felt food is FUN! Great job all the way around!! :)

    1. Thank you, Denise! I'm blessed to be able to stay home - even though my kids are grown and blessing me with their visits and grandbabies! Thank you so much for your kind comments! By the way, your bright yellow background on your blog makes me smile every time I see it!
