Yes, I worked on a Christmas project on Friday night! I saw this:
on Teri’s Blog back in November, and I knew I wanted to make it. So I waited until Red was the color for RSC15, and here is my version. I still need to sew on my buttons. I’ll do that later tonight or tomorrow.
Although I’m posting a couple of days late, I actually finished by Gifted Gorgeousness early this month.
In other exciting news, I finished my quilt from the Christmas Bee 2011 as my Guild UFO challenge this month. I had pieced it and even started quilting it some time ago, and quickly gave up. Now that my Sweet 16, which I have named Patience, and I are becoming friends, it was time to finish the quilting.
Each of the six other participants contributed two blocks. I requested a star block for one, and their choice for the other, highlighting their specialty. I received embroidery, applique, and paper piecing. They each also included a small friendship block that was incorporated into the back. I forgot to photograph the back, and it’s too dark now to attempt anything.
And if that’s not enough exciting news, I became a Great Aunt! The little one arrived six weeks early, at 4 pounds, 12 ounces. She is healthy and strong, and went home from the NICU after only 8 days. I can’t wait to meet and snuggle her.
Hope you all had a good weekend! It’s too hot here to go outdoors for a few days, so there’s more stitching to come.
waiting for snuggles…..Sunny
