The Tree is up.

Our tree is up, and we are busy with the events of the holiday season. We are involved with a production of A Christmas Carol, at our local Civic Center. Lots of fun and work. So getting the tree up before the busy two weeks of the play was an important thing to check off my list. I still have some Christmas Presents to finish but things are moving forward. The lovely quilt in the back ground was made by my Mom several years ago. It is a special part of my Christmas decorating.

Quilt Memory

Today I am blogging about a favorite quilting memory. A little Bit of Kaos is having a givaway and it is all about quilting memories. I must say I have quite a few but one of the most recent is of quilting with some high school students of mine. They were all new sewers and we made rag quilts. It was lots of fun, some of them kept there quilts others gave them away to special people in their lives. Here is a picture of a few of the girls and their quilts.

Show and Tell/Fabric Friday

Rosebud Quilting is having Fabric Friday/Show and Tell.
On Fabric Friday, Michelle asks us to show any handmade item {quilts, tote bag, wallhanging, clothing, etc.}, or show your fabric stash, or recent fabric purchase, or show how you decorate with fabric or fabric items.

So I am sharing an Apron I made for a class I taught last spring to some high school girls. We had such a fun time. Here is a picture of all of them in their wonderful aprons. My daughter who was my assistant in the class is modeling my apron.

So please pop over to Rosebud Quilting and check out not only her great site, but all the show and tells for the week.

Like most people I never win drawings. But this time I hit the jackpot! I won a absolutely gorgeous group of fat quarters. They are from Linda Lum DeBono's Inspiration line. It is in honor of breast cancer. They not only look beautiful they feel wonderful too. I have already started my quilt. It is to honor my two Aunts who have battled breast cancer. But also my friend Carol Morris, who lost her battle last week.
