Happy Day after Christmas! We had a wonderful celebration and have ingested way more than our year's sugar quota. My cousin brought unbelievably yummy caramel corn.

I can finally post the picture of the mystery gifts I worked on most of December. I made 4 table toppers, they are the size of a placemat. I knew I wanted to make a unit block of a green half square triangle with the other half triangle made of half red and half white. I had no idea what it would look like assembled till I actually put all the units together. Voila! It looked like peppermint candies.

I am finishing up the doll quilt I started earlier. Then I will start work on my son's graduation quilt.

Progress report

This quilt was made in 2000 for my first niece. My sister and brother-in-law sail, so I thought this was an appropriate pattern.

I made this quilt in 2004 for my second niece (same family). I wasn't sure what pattern to make and then I went to the quilt shop and saw this quilt displayed in the window. The owner/designer helped me pick out the fabrics.


I've been busy sewing those Christmas presents and they are *really* cute! No photos till after the gifts are given.

The border and binding are attached. I'll leave the hand sewing of the binding for my plane trip Wednesday. Besides, I have no green thread and I am not venturing out in the snow/sleet/freezing rain.

I bought this fabric for my newest brainstorm, Christmas gifts!


So I am cocooning today, not interested in heading out in bad weather. Guess I'll get started on those Christmas gifts!
