A Nice Surprise

Merry Christmas everyone! My Secret Pal strikes again!

DD had planned on taking me out for some "retail therapy" anyway. Looking forward to finding something for myself & spending some time with the fam.

Thank you Secret Pal for another unexpected surprise!

Time to go get ready for Nanaland. 8 hours & counting!

A Little Bit of This & a Little Bit of That

Today's quilts are brought to you by Joyce & Chris. First up is Joyce & this lovely panel. I think she got it on e-bay!
Big flowers needed big quilting. By echoing the first quilting line it gave it the dimension I was looking for.
I'm calling the stitching in the green "lazy river". I quilted a "lazy river" line by sections & then echoed about 1/2" away. Remember big designs need big quilting. She doesn't like dense quilting so I left the white areas blank.
If you want a closer look at the quilting just click on the picture.
Chris made Crabapple Hill's Winter Wonderland. I never get tired of quilting this one. Always a different way to add a swirl, curly que or do some Swirly Girly quilting.

Outdoor Christmas lights & more gutter cleaning are calling me. Mr S will be on the roof, thank you very much.

Next will be Christmas cards & cookies are next on my to do list. Sewing for the Little Misters too! And yes, I'm on the countdown again, 22 days 'til I'm in Nanaland!

More quilts coming soon. A big Double Wedding Ring is hot off the machine.
