Christmas was a quiet day stitching… a little laundry but mainly just enjoying my honey and Molly too!
And I rolled the quilt this week not once….
Showing close ups of these two areas…
Before rolling again yesterday!!!!
From this angle you can’t see what REALLY excites me though….
I am in no client imposed deadline…. but seeing this reminds me her Birthday is January 26… and Valentine’s is soon after so if I could finish and bind this in time she could have it then! Oh how exciting!!!!
Link up your hand stitching or check out other hand stitching fun over at Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching Linky <<< HERE where I will be linking this post up to… as well as my facebook page 🙂
And more excitement…. I have been straightening my sewing room and came across this darling rooster I bought and cut out and Connie put together then I added the outer border…. but it has no place in our cabin… so it needed a home that suited me and Connie BOTH….
Holli Jo my nail consultant and good friend *and Connie’s too* said she would love to have it… I mailed it off on the 20th and it was there before Christmas and she is thrilled to finished this flimsy wall hanging for her new “barn do”… a barn they are turning into more of a Condo on their farm of many acres in KY now that they are retired from the Navy!
To celebrate finding the rooster a home I put on fresh nail polish strips…. these came from Holli Jo too!
While I finished all that quilting and in between changing my polish… I listened to Jenny Doan’s autobiography…. Y’all it is a MUST READ or LISTEN on Audible like I did 🙂
Something to focus on….
My honey accepted an order to make another barn quilt for indoors like this one….
He is excited to start on it! Did YOU have a Merry Christmas too whatever you did???? I sure did as laid out above 😀
I would be honored if you got this far if you left a message on what you did this holiday season…. whatever you celebrate share the name and what you did to celebrate the holiday near and dear to YOU! I look forward to reading and replying to your comments too! Happy end to 2021 !
