Finally Finished
In someways I don't mind it being so cold. It's a good time too finish some quilts.. While I'm working on them, they do keep me warm at the same time.
I have two I had to get done one is a birthday gift the other a Christmas gift.

When we go away my Nephew moves in to look after all my birds plus the cat. While here last year
he put together a quilt top that I have finally finished for him. Turned out looking pretty good. I used flannel backing on this to add a little more warmth.

The second one I finished for a friend for her birthday. Did the quilting a little different on this one. I think it turned out really nice.

For me, if insperation doesn't strike. I always go with 'in the ditch'.

Those are both just gorgeous! They have so much individual character.

And this is the right weather to be making quilts

Thank you. Winter really is the time to finish them.

I can do cross stitch, I can do embroidery, I can knit... but something like this... no way. I'd just make a total mess of it.

You have no idea how envious I am of your skill.

Thank you. You know, it's really not that hard. I learned from a how to book.
