The holidays are here!

Well, I don't know about any of you but I'm just now getting into the holiday spirit. I can't believe it is the 15th of December already. But I guess getting the head cold crud slowed me down. I do have a couple commissions. Some due by Christmas (yes Mom I'll make it) and some due by Valentine's Day. So busy is a relative term. I'm so glad that I am busy at home and at work.

Happy Holidays!

New photos posted!

Check out the slide show - I finally added photos of the pillows and some of the wallhangings - Sue inspired me to get them done! I'm in the midst of crocheting the scarves I mentioned now. But this nasty head cold is slowing me down! I promise, more photos to come.

Where is the time going?

It's early December, the first snow fall has happened and it's 30 degrees. Wow! The Thanksgiving holidays are past and a whirlwind it was. But I was constantly seeing ideas for new quilts. One was about concentric circles -- it was a photo of wood paneling with raised circular molding in a grid pattern. Hmmm how to replicate? I'll figure it out. Maybe buttons, maybe unravelling silk, maybe steel washers, or maybe a combination of those items.

In the meantime, I've gotten a couple requests for items. Another doll quilt a la Barbie was commissioned. My mother asked for three scarves for gifts. A good friend asked for some wall hangings - she has the materials but some arrangements and logistics (mounting plans). There may be one other larger commission but I won't talk about it any further until it's confirmed.

With the holidays approaching, hours to create are scarce but I'll find the time. Yes I'll take photos. Stay tuned. Please?
