I cannot believe how time flies, Gee, tomorrow is Thanksgiving already.
So without further ado.... Here is my pillow:
This was a lot of fun to make. I had all kinds of ideas as to how I could embellish it but my husband seen it and said it was perfect and not to do anything else to it.
He is such a great supporter of my quilting. I can always count on him to give me his honest opinion of my work. (which is what I want even though sometimes it is hard to hear)
I don't know about anyone else, but I have been really busy getting ready for Christmas. Every year in December, the University of Tennessee has a "Santa's Village". There is a large train set up, all kinds of things for the children including a petting zoo, and lots of venders. This year I am setting up a table with some of my things. So, I have been busy making all kinds of different items. Here are just a few things that I have:
(I thought mother/daughter aprons were so cute...I made quite a few)
(I have lots of items including a lot of Pin Cushions, Scissor Holders, Wallets, Change Purses, Cosmetic Bags, etc.)
Now I know you all heard of "MISSOURI STAR" QUILT CO. I got the best Christmas fabric there and such a great price too. I made these wall hangings with some of the fabric that I got:
"Bells are Ringing" 32" X 32"
"Merry Christmas" 43 1/2" X 43 1/2"
Oh, I also made this Christmas Quilt with their fabrics:
"Christmas is Coming" 50" X 50"
I am not done either. I want to make stockings and more toppers. I am all excited and having lots of fun at the same time.
OK, enough of my things....Go check out the rest that have blogs today in the "Holiday Lane" Blog Hop:

Now that is some serious Christmas quilting! That is how I want my blog to look next year, only I don't want to do it all at one time. I want to do it one project a month or something smart like that.. LOL. It sounds an awful lot like a resolution I made last year and never kept. I would love to be able to get so much done. I was obsessed with my hexagon project this year, and that was all I got done. This year I would ever so much like to get more done. HOW!!??
