My hexie Christmas project is growing in leaps and bounds.  It is almost too big to lay out on my living-room carpet to photograph!  I have three more diamond shapes to fill in around the edges, then I'll start to change the shape to more of a rectangle.  If I don't finish it before heading south, I'll have to cut enough pieces of Christmas fabric to take with me - don't want to buy more unless it has an immediate project ready to sew.......
I also finished this Advent calendar for my future DIL this week.  I had fun stitching with some rayon and mylar threads for a bit of shine.
I made her a Christmas apron, and while cleaning out the closet, found one in fall colours, as well as one I had made for my son many years ago, with his favourite "Animaniacs" cartoon characters.

Head over to Judy's blog to see what lovelies everyone is working on this week.


  1. What a beautiful Christmas quilt....and a lot of work. I love the advent calendar too. You are one busy lady.


  2. It is growing beautifully! Great progress there. Really cute advent Santa. OMIgosh, Christmas will be here before we know it.

  3. Love your quilt! Wow that's a lot of work.

  4. Very impressive - this will be (already is) a beautiful heirloom.
