Christmas Projects

Here are the pictures of the projects I could not show before Christmas.

Now I can start thinking about Birthdays which start on Feb.  I have 10 just in Feb., March and April.  Lots to think about.

Last Blocks, Snow lady and Peanut Brittle

Here are the last of the 9-patch blocks for my quilt.  Tomorrow I will be at Terry's to lay it out the way I want the blocks to go together.  I do not have room here at home to do that.

A 2nd sock snow person but this is my Snowlady.  I crocheted the hat and scarf without a pattern.  I love the aqua color I used. It is bright and cheery. 

Hubby helped me get our annual peanut brittle made just now and it sure smells good in here.  It has to cool before it can be broken up into pieces.

More Blocks and A Gift

Here are the next 7 blocks for my Charming Star Quilt.  Only 6 more to go.

Hubby went out to the Ohio Warehouse open house near us on Fri. and came home with this for me. He got it for just a few dollars.  It is a beautiful picture but the best part is the candles in the windows light up and flicker.

This is with the lights on.  Sorry it is blurry but it was very hard to get a good picture.  I just love it.  I will hang it after Christmas.

Charming Star Quilt

I have the first 11 nine-patch blocks done for my Charming Star Quilt along.  I only have to do 13 more and then I can lay it out.  I will have extra blocks because I figured wrong but I have a use for them already.  I laid them out on the love seat because getting them to the floor just was not going to happen today.

I saw this and had to try my luck at making it.  I am very happy with how it came out.  It is made from a sock.  I had everything here to make it.

Doll Quilts

Here are the last 5 quilts I finished.  That brings my total to 58 since May.  I may work on more yet this year but I do have other sewing to do.
