I managed to get the binding sewn down on the Red Rails over the last three nights, boy that was a big sucker to stitch around, and now it's resting comfortably on the bed.
I've always loved red, even as a kid my favorite dress was red. Now many of you have suggested that this is a wonderful Christmas quilt. Yes it is, but it's also a wonderful any time of the year quilt, especially when you love red, like I do. Had to give you one last look at Connie's wonderful machine quilting. It makes me smile to see those butterflies dancing through the daises.
Yesterday I managed to get a little stitching in before I headed outside to do some final yard work. I mean when the weathers in the 70's you take advantage of it. So the pup and I did some leaf raking and generally enjoyed the sunshine, and just as we were heading inside this is what we left. Absolutely beautiful.
So today will see a few more of these sweet little creatures made in those yummy checks that I bought on the weekend and a few more Christmas gifties need to be made.
Now to the winner of the Christmas Cheer giveaway. It was so nice to get some of you lurkers out of the woodwork, I do hope you won't go back into hiding. How many times does #1 ever come out of a random draw? (DH was in bed sleeping when I remembered this needed to be done). Well in this instance it did, so Kimberly if you'll email me your postal address I'll get this into the mail on the weekend.
