I did the quilting on my two machines. The snowflakes are embroidery machine patterns that I got years ago. This year I am going to really focus on learning to quilt nicely so that I'm not so nervous doing my own quilts. I'm enjoying the process even though I get a little stressed every time I start to quilt something.

I got this kit in Vermont about 5 years ago! When I went to visit my niece last weekend I saw it hanging on the wall at the quilt store and thought, "hey, I better make mine this week!" So I came home and got on it. This is the center. I have to do the borders and then it will be ready for quilting,

My niece made this tonight! She fused, appliqued, quilted and machine bound it all while I watched! She was easy to teach! Her mom gave her a sizzix cutter so I wanted her to make something right away.

I made a few snowman table toppers, towels, etc. for my girls and my BFF, Debbie. I just finished them minutes ago. Here are the towels...

I am making some runners and table mats for Rob and Ali this week. They have been married for 6 months already! Can you believe it? Well, I am doing blue work for their items, which I am liking! A lot!
Kenny was jealous of the snowmen I made Evy and Pat so I made him this tonight. It will be a pillow in a few days. Evy cleaned all of her clothes and stuff out of our house today. All that's left is the furniture which she will take this weekend. It will be nice to organize everything this winter and clean it the rest of the way. I also have to purge tons of stuff. I am looking forward to that.
I love this snowman picture! I guess I am getting over my snowman aversion!

I am making Evelyn a few things for her new house! She has purchased an adorable place in a great town, but they won't move in for a few weeks so I thought I'd do snowmen for her instead of Christmas this year. This will become a runner.
These towels are hand embroidery. I am working on one more. I have to add trim to the bottoms.
I made the little ornaments at a rug hooking class. It was fun but not a full time hobby for me!
