Hi there ...

Is anyone else still stitching for Christmas!?  I realize I am completely nuts ....

Today about 10 AM ...

Later today about 6 PM (after a hair cut, several errands, a little procrastination, and a trip to get different binding fabric than my original plan) ...

I continue to be amazed at the sizes of quilts I am able to quilt on my little Bernina with only slight irritation/frustration.  (I love my machine.  But I would love the 820 more when it comes to actually quilting my projects.  One day ...)  It helps to bring my machine down to the dining room where the table can support the weight of more quilt than my sewing desk upstairs in my disaster area sewing room.

About 7:30 PM ...

Better start hand stitching that binding!  ;-)

Later I will be praying that the Shout Color Catcher does its job. :-)

I will show you the finished quilt and share a tutorial for the easy peasy pattern next week. 

Happy Sewing! :)


  1. Yay for color catchers! They have never let me down. :)

  2. Wow! That came out gorgeous! One of these days I'll try quilting my quilts ... at the present, that's my "scary place." :) :)
    Merry Christmas!

  3. I was actually sewing sad. I threw together a handbag for a friend that we had over for dinner tonight...and had a nasty headache all day too! =)

    Love the quilt...I think I need a color catcher... =)

    Merry Christmas!

  4. I thought I was the only one who prayed about the Shout Color Catchers! It's nice to know I'm not the only one who stresses out about my quilts after they are finished!

  5. I would totally want to be still stitching...but I'm not near the machine for a day or two...hope your Christmas is very merry!


Thanks for stopping by - we love hearing from you! :-)
