How are you doing today? I'm doing pretty good. :) I've been making lots of progress! I love progress! I would love to share it with you! :)
Here's what I was working on today . . .
Whatever could this be? ;) I'll let you stew on that for a few more days. I'll share more as I get further along. Sorry . . . I can't help myself. ;)
I've gotten the last stitchery done for my Christmas Stitchery Mini Quilt. Actually I made 4 of them. I know I only made 2 of each of the others, but I really liked the snowman! :) I saw it and just knew I wanted to make another project (actually 2 of them) with just him! :)
Isn't he cute?!!! I love snowmen! :)
I've made more progress on my Christmas Tree Mini Quilts. I've got all 4 of them quilted. The quilting actually went pretty smooth. It's the first time I used different top and bottom thread colors. I was nervous but it worked. I didn't want to do too much quilting so I just outlined the tree levels and stitched on the red, right next to the white. Here's a close-up of the front quilted . . .
And a close-up of the back . . .
Here's the whole back, angled for a better view . . .
I couldn't really get a good picture of the quilting on the front. Oh well. Here's the whole front . . .
Did you notice I was able to get the binding on already too?! Tonight I'll be hand stitching down the last binding and then that part will be done. All that will be left will be the finishing details. Yes! There is more! I'm really liking how these are coming out! :) It's been really fun and didn't take too much fabric. The hardest part about the fabric was finding a variety of greens. Oh . . . and don't you just love the border and backing fabric? I love it! The reds are so deep and beautiful! :)
Tomorrow will be the only 1 week left until boutique mark. Yes I'm behind . . . but I'm making good progress. :) It hasn't helped that my son's sick this week and I spent 3 hours at the doctors with him today. However now he's all stocked up on meds and should be getting better everyday. That's the important thing! :)
Until next time . . .
