Quilting More

I have been busy quilting for customers still. I got done all the Christmas present quilts done. This was one of them from a little while back. I still have lots to do this week and I am not felling so good. I have that Pre Christmas cold. I hope I am over it by next week.

I hope to get more photos soon. We have so little natural light this time of year. I have not done lots of sewing, Just bits here and there. 

Here is my husband on his horse Socks. We have so much more snow now. I bet the snow would be at his knees now. We also have a good layer of ice on the top of the snow so it is not nice to go riding. They are both so cute.

Finish Up Friday

I got another scarf done this week. It will be added to the Christmas gifts. It is a nice thick warm one. 

Here are the two yarns I used, a pink eyelash and the Chenille. I love this Chenille and wish I had more of it. 

I also have pear pincushions done. One is for me and I have been using it for a little while now. The second one was my gift at the Leduc Black Gold Quilt Patch Christmas exchange. I also gave a package of new silk pins. The pear is a pattern Here by Heater Bailey. The pattern came with Apples, Strawberries and Tomatoes too. I may have to make them all. I have a few planned for Christmas gifts. I used some Bear beads in the bottom of the pears so they would sit well and then some polyester stuffing. 
See how much snow we have? It is very cold now too, -30 C or colder. 

I have added this post to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish Up Firday and Nap Time Crafter.

No Wining

So I have been working on my Celtic Solstice Mystery quilt step 1. It is a Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt. You can find out about it on Quiltville
This photo is from Saturday night. I sewed and was having a few drinks as I sewed. Well it did not go all well. I spilt my Wine. I kind of made a bit of a mess. I reached for my pins and the taller wine glass fell over. It was White, so I just ironed it dry. 

I got my Easy Street Quilt top done. This was last years Bonnie Hunter Mystery from last year. I got the top done before I started the next one. 
Do you see the one patch I have to fix?

I hope to get it quilted early in the New Year. I am a little busy doing customers Quilts right now. 

Here are my Celtic Solstice Mystery patches. So far so good. I am using the black as my Neutral, Blue were Bonnie said Blue and Pink batik were Bonnie has Orange. I just love some of these Batiks. So bright and clear. 
Oh Yes, Bonnie has a linky page, to see more Go Here. Others mystery quilters have shown off their work.
