I really have been sewing but just didn't have anything that was finished. Now I have a couple of things completed but the photos are not ready to be published. I have a new PC and do not have my camera software installed so that I can manipulate the pictures a little. So you will have to wait a while longer for pictures.

I have been working on OESD ornaments and angels from the 2008 Christmas software. I have made some that are gold with gold metallic and crystal embellishments. They are very elegant. I also have a white satin angel and ornaments from several different colors of satin. They have silver metallic trim.

My local quilt guild is working on a lap quilt to give to our local veteran's hospital. The members gave me the blocks and I have that top pieced. I just need to get the backing and will be ready to be quilted.

The guild is also working on the donation quilt for our fall quilt show. So I have also been working on putting that together. Another day of work and it will probably be ready for the quilter.

We went to our son's for Thanksgiving. We were fortunate to have our three great granddaughters, five of our grandchildren, and our three children and spouses. It was a nice day and the food was great.

Freeze Frame

This quilt has been constructed from Judy Laquidara's Quilt for an Hour Project on her Patchwork Times blog. She designs a quilt and then allows her readers to make that quilt. Her directions are given to readers each day and can usually be made with an hour of work. This project has 12 hours of directions.

My quilt is made entirely from batiks. The quilt is meant to be feminine and is made for cozy cuddling in the evening. I left off the final border so it would not be too big.

I have fabrics for a masculine version that will be made with light and dark browns as the background with woodsy colors for the squares.
