I spent my day enjoying the three parts of quilting that I love most - hand quilting, piecing and pulling fabrics.
First, I pulled out my niece's quilt. She's turning two in a month, and I still haven't given it to her! I'm determined to have it under the tree for her this year, along with a handmade stuffed animal, a sample from my shop. Hand quilting takes me FOREVER, but I'm doing simple straight lines, so it shouldn't take too long. I hate marking quilts, so I use painter's tape - anyone else do that?

|I helped make this giraffe sample when I owned my shop. Now that I no longer own the shop, samples make great gifts!|
Then I went back to the Christmas quilt. What does it say about me that I am already a bit bored with that project? But just you wait - by the time this break is over, I'll have a completed top.

Then, so I'm ready to jump into the fray when I return from my mom's house in New Hampshire, I pulled my fabrics for Bonnie Hunter's new mystery, On Ringo Lake. The first clue goes live on Friday.

I won't be back on here until after Thanksgiving, so have a great one, everyone!
