Here is the Christmas Project that I've been sewing for my kids for one of their Christmas presents. I actually gave each one of them one on Thanksgiving Day so they could use it before Christmas. Its my Show and Tell that I'm participating in. Every couple got one which excluded my High School Senior, so I got him a case of V-8. Yes that seems pretty weird, doesn't it, but he loves the stuff. I should probable count this as 1 quilt project so it will be Quilt# 45
Go here to see everyones projects this Show and Tell season.

Hello everyone. Here is what I call one of My Pride & Joy's. I'm really happy about Quilt #44. I hope there is others out there who finds such satisfaction when a quilt is completed. You may recognize this pattern from Gail Pan Designs free Christmas BOM, called A Christmas Wish. Following her blog has set fire to my desire to do some embroidery, which I haven't done in such a long time. I will be doing others.

There was 9 total blocks Here's Love

& Noel

& Peace.
Other blocks were Joy, Delight, Hope, Magic, Merry, & Believe.

Don't you think that all these words represent Christmas just perfectly? I just love what those words mean!

I hope we all can focus on those words as we are hurrying around, doing errands, projects, parties, etc. as we prepare for this holiday season. It'll be comforting to our souls. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Look at what came in the mail yesterday. I won this trio of books from Beth Strub and I started reading them last night after I got home from work and looked at the pattern for the quilt that is included in each one. I suggest you visit the thequiltladies .com website and see these and the rest of the series of 12 in this collection. Thanks again!
