Breaking News!!! Mystery Quilt is DONE!!
DONE!! FINIS!! COMPLETE!!
As many of you may remember, this was a UFO that was started 4 years ago and became the infamous Mystery Quilt from Hell. I would pull it out, try to remember where I left off, do a little more and shove it in the closet again. I worked on this consistently this fall as a PIG for my guild's PIG roast but didn't finish it in time. WELL, it is done with label! I was going to give it to my SIL but DH really likes it so it will live at our house after all. Sure feels good to have this monkey off my back.
And I have been doing other things!! This is a little knitted skirt for my fairy goddaughter, Bridie, for Christmas. A skein of Chenille yarn and some fun fur at the bottom! She is going to love it. Made her a scarf to match!
And Finally, these are the wool christmas ornaments that I cut and brought to work on in Houston. Now complete and ready for my tree. I had the idea of making a bunch of them as gifts but didn't like working with the tiny pieces. They are cute and will be a nice addition to my tree.
The last picture is a close up of the snowman.
I am still working on my super secret guild challenge quilt. It is now in the quilting stage and will be ready for the presentation on Tuesday for our guild's Christmas party. I will post a picture on Wednesday.
I have been visiting everyone and loving the pictures of your Christmas projects and decorations. You gals are sewwwww inspiring!! Our house is just about done. We are decorating the tree in our living room today and cutting the tree for our den to be decorated tomorrow. We will have a total of EIGHT trees in our house when we are done ranging in size from a foot to 8 1/2 feet!! It takes about 2 weeks to get all the decorating done and we leave most of it up til 3 Kings Day in January. I want to be able to say it's for the kids, but we only have one, who is 20, and there are no grandkids yet. It's really for my DH. He has an EXTREME love of all things Christmas. (Please don't tell all the guys in the office !) He is really a kid at heart which is what I love about him. I'll post a couple of pictures of our trees next week.
Til then, quilt til you wilt and from DH, HO! HO! HO!
