I hope you all are near your friends and family this holiday season.
I wasn't going to post this week but I could not resist when I saw Mary's post this morning. I have been looking to accessorize my unusually bold styled coat (for me) for a long time and I think I may have found a perfect thing!
Go check out her blog. You are going to love how clever she is and how beautiful her work is..
I am wondering if I need to buy a new coat or feel lucky that in future it will be used to make my home even more stylish like Mary's. LOL..
It has been a busy yet very relaxing and happy past few days. My long lost best friend from 1988 is back in my life. She visited for few days and we shared so much lughter over cups of tea.. Lots and lots of cups of tea! It is amazing that true friendships remain the same even after so many years and you can pick up where it was left off last time. We had not communicated in at least 17 years! It was a blast from the past for sure!
I am just thankful that I have people all around the world that are so near and dear to me!
Before she arrived, I finished this little wall hanging and practiced my machine quilting.
I love finishing a quilt with bias binding for the curvy edges. The curved piecing becomes even edgier...
Here are some pebbles! I had to sneak them in!
Working on that scrap quilt.. Remember this? I decided to hand quilt with Perle Cotton.. I have always loved heavy hand quilting. This one was particularly inspired by this.
It is a nice little project to finish before the year ends. There is a spot in the house that needs a little sprucing up and this quilt is just the right size for that.
I also did lot of machine quilting last week.
This is the back of my 'Amish Impressions Zigzag' quilt.
And here is the front!
Also build more houses..
Hope your home is filled with love and laughter this week.
Have a wonderful day giving thanks to your family and friends!
