Quilts finished

after Christmas gifts were done.  The first was made up of extra blocks from Becca's mystery.  I added borders and made it into a table topper.  The second is using Brenda's pattern "Kisses and Cuddles"  and Moda's line of fabric called the General, so, of  course, it's name is General Hooker!

Just took a wedding gift off Gertrude and did the machine part of the binding.  The wedding is Friday, so should be in good shape.  Would have been better if I hadn't had to frog stitch 4 or 5 rows.....but now it's in the last phase...hooray!

Under the wire

This one was done in the nick of time!  I was putting in the last binding stitches, the label and in the washing machine on Friday just before my eldest and his family came down---he will be on the Slope for Christmas, so last weekend was our only time to get together.  But I did it!!  The grandson's name is Tory and green is his favorite color.  Sadly, he didn't come with the family as he had a college final on Monday :(

Culprits Return

to the scene of the crime.  I was rudely interrupted while peacefully blog cruising by lots of banging under my bed room window.  There they were--mama and her twins, munching--no tearing at--my poor dead peonies.  I have tried to take photos of them thru the window before and I now know better.  So I  made a mad dash out to the deck and of course Mama wouldn't stay, so she is headless in this photo.  Serves her right to have missed her moment of glory!
