One Relaxing Weekend


I finally put the border on my quilt, "A Quilter's Journey" designed by Leanne Beasley. I'm not sure why it took me so long--I actually finished this quilt at the end of May. I'm still trying to decide whether or not to hand quilt this one; it's not a really big quilt, so I just might tackle the hand-quilting in January.
I finished the October block from Lynette Anderson...just in time, since the November one should be coming out soon. I love these little blocks; the animals have such fun "personalities!"
Since I was in the stitching mode, I started on some little Christmas stitcheries. They will be made into the cutest little Christmas bags--I can't wait to get them finished!
And I made this little set for a friend, a matching bag and basket, perfect for putting little things in!
My project list is long this week, so hopefully I'll soon have some more fun things to share!

Sherri, I love the quilt. It has so many different "looks" in it. Very nice. I can't wait to come over tomorrow!

Your Quilter's Journey is just wonderful...oh and the basket (I must try one of those) and the bag...I love it, but it has a zipper and that just scares me to death. What a nice treat for a friend.

Hi, I love it all. Your friend is very lucky.
Perhaps you can call me too and I'll join Dawn watching you put a zip in, you may have to wait for me as it's a long flight!

Wonderful treats for a friend. And, the Christmas stitcheries are oh so cute.

I love your "Quilter's Journey" quilt. I finished mine last year and it's still in the 'need to be quilted' pile. I've been thinking about starting "Leanne's House" soon.

Your quilt top is gorgeous. It's a great feeling getting it to this stage, isn't it?
