These little stocking are so fun and again easy to make, seems like I always say something is fun and easy to make. Humm maybe I only make fun and easy things, I don't know but they are cute and Helen and Betty both loved them. Oh yeah I had to make myself one too.

After the crash
These are Helen's flowers that she made is class. They are all beautiful.
These are mine. I do need more practice but I think I did pretty good for this being my first time.

A lot of work goes into making this little star wall hanging and she did 2 of them almost exactly the same so I didn't post both pictures. All those little diamond shapes , wow. I love the way the colors go around the stat like they do.
My sister made this quilt as a gift for one of the girls in her bunco< ( sure I didn't spell that correct) group. It has a picture of each of the ladies that play in her group. The stars are paper pieced. Wished I would have taken a better picture of it. She makes beautiful quilts, she just doesn't sew very much any more.
And last but now least a Round Robbin. Isn't this beautiful? I quilted a feather chain panto on this one using Old Gold color thread. Very pretty, she hasn't picked it up yet but I'm sure she will love it.
Two of my favorite pink plates.

I made this quilt, it's one of my favorites, probably because it's pink and it's a heart. The pattern is a log cabin block. This one is hanging in my sewing room.
A few weeks ago I stopped at a second hand store and saw this pretty little pink rose pin. I didn't get it but thought about it for 2 weeks and wished I'd had. I stopped by there this week and guess what it was still there and as you can see I bought it. Only 3.50 I will never wear it but may use it to decorate in the pink room, any ideas?
This is our little grandson Tyler, he loves this pink cabbage page doll. Think I will take it to him when we go for Christmas.
You have probably seen this already but I just had to share it here.
Thank you for your visit and comment.

I am so far behind in posting customer quilts. This one is really pretty, she used left over wine and grape fabric scraps. I quilted a panto called Mimosa on it. She loved it.
Here is the back of the quilt, you can see the pattern a little bit better here. I love this pattern. I did it on a red quilt that I made, I'll show later. See you all Saturday for Pink Saturday.
Oh yeah today I found the prettiest tea pot while out shopping. Wonder if it will be here Saturday?

This is a customer quilt I finished up last night. I did an all over meander on it using thread color Lemonade. It's much prettier in person.
This is the back of the quilt. That is the most beautiful fabric. You can't really see it in the picture but around the flowers is the pretties shiny gold outline.
And a close up of the back. This is a huge quilt 98X106 so it took me a good while to do it yesterday. I think the customer will be very happy with it. I know I wish it were mine.
Hopefully today I can pin on one of my quilt that I need to get done for a Christmas gift. Hubby is painting the living room today and going to start down the hall, he has already done the family room and his office area. It's a lot of work to paint when you have a bad back and 2 bad knees, so it is slow go for him but he is getting it done a little at a time. I will try and post pictures of what it looks like so far. I can't wait for it to be all done. I am tired of the mess everywhere. Next will be my pink room then our bedroom. Oh and the bathroom. It has apple tree wall paper. I didn't put it there, it was there when we rented the house and she didn't want us to change anything but now that we are buying we can cut down the apple trees. oh it's terrible and I've had to live with it like that for 5 years. Anyway enough babbling on. You all have a wonderful Sunday and be good.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner. What are you doing today? Are you brave enough to fight the crowds for shopping? Not me, that is just to many people and to much waiting in line for me. We did a few years ago at a fabric store, waited in line 2 hours to get fabric cut then waited in line an hour to pay for it. Not fun at all but good luck to all of you who are out shopping today. I saw on the news last night where people were lined up and camping outside of Best Buy, to me that's just crazy. I saw this woman's Remote somewhere on the web and thought I would share it with you. To bad it doesn't really work.
Don't forget tommorrow is Pink Saturday. Click the link on my side bar if you would like to join us.
