I guess you would say I have been playing hooky from here lately.  Actually I've been busy in the sewing room making  Christmas and Halloween items.   I have had Christmas spirit since mid Summer.  The Morse Code quilt in my last post is done.  I made a matching pillowcase also.  It's stippled and has a nice light gray scroll backing.

So many things are in the works I had to make a list to keep up with myself. 
I took a week from sewing and did load of machine embroidery.  Here are a few of the gingerbread men I plan to turn into banners.  These were fun to make except the tedious trimming.  They will be cute when they are strung together and embellished with satin bows ~~~

Our neighbor wants some Christmas pillow shams, so these embroidered and quilted pieces will become shams for her for Christmas.

There are stacks of bindings for table runners and small projects everywhere. 

I hope your holiday projects are coming along well. 

Wishing you and yours a great day!

I've spent a bit of time sewing the past two weeks.  I finished a 60x70 inch quilt using the Morse Code pattern.  I picked up a random mini jellyroll and have no clue what fabric line it is.  Please let me know if you know.  I would love to buy more of this gorgeous fabric.

The border fabric is not part of the jellyroll line.  I added a strip of the border fabric to the body of the quilt so it would "make sense".  The colors in this quilt are soft and frosty with quite a bit of silver metallic (a bit challenging to work with).  Yesterday I took this top to my quilter in hope she can finish it before Thanksgiving. 

We are off for a busy day of work.  Wishing everyone a blessed day.
