I entered a table runner in the contest at the Quilting Gallery. It is one of my favorites from the monthly table runners that were put out by Cotton Way. I love all of the patterns they make. It is machine appliquéd and machine quilted. I have only one more to do and then I will have the entire year done.
In my little online group, ABC Quilters, we did a fabric challenge. My sister Roma sent us each a half yard of Christmas fabric and we were to make something out of it to swap. The rule was to make something you would like to receive. I made pillows from mine. Well, when the challenge was over, we were told that we each keep what we made for ourself!!!! Cool, eh? (We are always looking for a few new members who will participate in our little projects.)
I was in a doll quilt swap at the Quilting Bee Forum (see sidebar) and this is the quilt I received. It is so cute!!!! Thanks, Kim Duggin, for the sweet quilt that will go on the wall with my others.
We also did a Secret Santa on the ABC group. We used the word Christmas, and had to give something that started with each letter of the word. I got some really nice things from my sister, Roma.
Oh, and I got this pattern for a Swirl Christmas tree from Frivolous Necessity. It is sooo sweet. I am in the process of sewing down all of the pieces. My sister Patty did one in a red/green color way. It is such a unique pattern.
So, that's all of the pics I have to share right now.
I have a request. I want to knit toe up socks. I have googled and watched youtube videos up the ying yang and can't seem to get the toe started. I tried the figure 8, which everything said was the easiest. Do any of you have a preferred way? And if you do, will you share with me. Thanks!!!!
