First Christmas gift complete!


Well hello there!  Rose I hope you are reading this because this one is for you.  Recently my friend Rose commented that I am not blogging very often and I think that she is correct that I needed to get over here to The Savvy Quilter and start sharing more.  Besides with the Christmas season drawing near I am starting to make gifts and if I don’t document them how am I ever going to remember what I did?  So here is the first completed gift for Christmas 2014.  This is my first hand applique project, I used linen for the body of the pouch and wool for the applique.  I have to say that I love working with wool and I am really happy with how it turned out for a first hand applique project.  I also find it very relaxing to do some hand sewing in the evening.  I can’t wait to see the recipient of this gift open it at Christmas since it is a very special project for me.  Thanks for stopping by so I can share project 1 of the season!


Sewing Student’s Quilts Complete


I finally finished quilting and binding (thanks mom) the students quilts that they pieced back in May! I love how they turned out, can’t wait to hand out the final few.  My girls decided that they would like to try a little quilting on their quilt tops.
