Finishing up for the Holidays

Nearly done for Christmas break...

The tote bags I made for the kids - Kallie and her adorable little friends (I made 6 but there are only 3 that weren't wrapped by the time I thought to snap a shot...) but I still need to put goodies in them for delivery.

And the gorgeous tree quilt!! After making the whole quilt once before (turned 90 such that the tree ran horizontally across the bed... ARRRGGHHH!!!!) I completed the second one just in time... And they are both beautiful, though the first would make a better wall hanging.

Not to worry, I will still be sewing on vacation. My mom has purchased a brand new Bernina 630 for me to use while I visit. What a mom!

Snowy Sneak Peeks

In light of the fact that it is snowing outside, in Houston (I know, highly unusual weather) I thought I'd take the extra indoor time today to post some nearly done projects that will be making it to the shop soon. Just as soon as I go buy materials and get the fabric orders to finish these... waiting and waiting for online orders to arrive is very frustrating!
this is a custom ordered quilt that will be a queen sized tree quilt... this is just the background that the tree will be appliqued onto...
This is the Authentic by Sweetwater for Moda quilt that I have been taking my sweet time about finishing...
And since I'm without materials for these and it's snowing... I had to make some of these... Oh, darn the bad luck. ;o)
Happy snow day!
