A finish, a top, and 4 cuties...

 Donated Christmas Tree-Skirt done, donated to dinner/auction 
fundraiser for church, and sold for $75.00.
 This is my purchase from the fundraiser. An Acrylic named "Attitude".  
Done by Michelle Campbell of Beausejour, MB, Canada.
 It spoke to me, what can I say!?! LOL!! Love it!  ;)

I finally got around to making GS#4 a quilt-top. I best get it 
finished up quick, and move on to his Christmas Stocking...
All 4 of my grandsons together!! A once or twice a year occasion.
L to R: GS#3 - DS, GS#1 - TJ, GS#2 - FT, GS#4 - SA.
We celebrated my dad's 80th birthday with whole and extended family yesterday. A "surprize party" as his birthday is really in November, so it was indeed a surprize to him...  ;)
80!!! WOW!! Time flies...

Until next time.... Happy Stitching!!!

Tree Skirt Quilt Top Done...

Now to get it sandwiched, quilted, bound, and delivered. Then I best get thinking about making another Christmas Stocking for our latest addition. We can't have him without one for his first Christmas!!
 SA - 6 months old now...


On the display wall...

In my last post I showed a Thanksgiving wall-quilt made for a fundraiser. Well, 
since the event date was changed to "after" Thanksgiving, I decided to keep it for myself, 
so now I am making a tree-skirt to donate for the fundraiser. This is how it looks so far.
Photo from my iPod, so not the best lighting/flash. 
When the top is fully sewn together I will take a better photo.

I hope all my fellow Canadians had a wonderful Thanksgiving with their family and friends. 
Personally, mine was great! Ate too much, and lost at cards...  ;)

Happy stitching!
