Before we lost our house a couple years ago, I used to live a stones throw away from my friend Julie and we used to sew together 2-3 days a week and we always had a blast! Now that I live in town and she still lives up in the forest about an hour away, we still find the time to get together and sew.
Julie has 3 grandsons who recently moved back to California from Delaware. She needed to finish up the youngest boys Christmas Stocking...yep, Michaels!
So here she is, happy as heck to have it done...it turned out great and she quilted the fabric herself which was a first for her! Nice job Julie!!
Now notice in the picture to the right of Julie, the little sign...it says "Soon it will be Christmas day"...I keep that right next to where Julie sews and everytime she starts to complain or say she is tired, I tell her "Soon it will be Christmas Day!" to which she always growls at me! LOL! Shes a good friend to me, some days I dont know why she puts up with me cuz believe me I can be a treat!
Well its mystery time! Bonnie Hunter has her yearly mystery up and going...this year its called "Celtic Solstice". I did her mystery "Easy St" last year and it was so fun and the outcome was a gorgeous quilt that I really love! So, heres my progress so far, these aren't trimmed yet...I need to get in the right frame of mind to trim 188 of these!
