Unearthing the Sewing Machine

As my studio is the place where everything goes when I'm tidying for guests, it's always the last room cleaned. (Read as Rarely Ever TIDY) And guess where the guys went on Christmas Eve to watch the game? You got it in one! My studio. At least the stocking stuffers were hidden (under the laundry) and no unmentionables were in sight!
As for my work...
Yes, yes, I know Christmas won't be for another 363, but maybe my Christmas quilt will be done by then. It's simple, a Stitched Scraps pattern, that I've been using as leaders and enders for several months. Also, I got out my Oriental Lanterns to get some progress on it. My daughter claimed this one long ago. I suppose she'd like to sleep under it some day!

Hello! I found your blog from the Freebie smalls blog and I just HAD to stop by to say WOW!!! I'm so impressed by anyone that can quilt and the projects that you have here are FAB!!

I'm not a quilter (yet, lol) but I'm trying hard to learn and have started my first quilt (Leanne's House BOM) and am loving it. I'm rubbish at it if I'm honest but I keep trying.

I'm hoping to maybe try and find a quilt class to take this year to help me a bit. Not easy round here though, creative types are thin on the ground here, :(

Anyway, sorry for the ramble.....I just wanted you to know that I've bookmarked you and will stop by often to soak up all the pretty colours.

Thanks for sharing :)

I just love how you displayed your ornies and I might do the same as you as I think you're right: they kind of get lost in the tree...
It's always such pleasure for the eyes to visit your blog and see your quilts. You inspire my soon to be quilter's work...
Thanks for sharing, as The Silver Thistle said.
Take care,
