My Day on 'Twas the Night Blog Hop

Ho, Ho, Ho....Welcome to my home!
I am the last stop on the first day of this wonderful, super-fun blog hop created by Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt and our amazing super "elf" Marlene of Stitchin' By The Lake. Thank you both for kickin' us into gear and supplying us with lots of super ideas for holiday gifting and beyond! 

My Amazing Gift is from Wendy!
I do not know how I got so lucky to have landed after Wendy, but I did. I don't know how, when Wendy's life is upside down, she managed to make a beautiful hanging worthy of QuiltFest, but she did. I don't know how she is managing, but she is and I am sending all my prayers and thoughts her way.

All of my ideas are pretty straightforward, so rather than prattle on, I'll just let you look through my pictures. If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them. Getting started on presents was really fun and I am in the spirit of giving...how about you?!

Baby Sock Coin Purses

Knitted Neck Scarves
25"x 8", size 13 needles
cast on 20 stitches

My dear friend and co-worker, Christine, modelling the scarf I made for her in her son's college colors...very elegant.

Thread Scarves
86" x 6"

Sandwiched in between two pieces of sticky water soluble paper, then stitched north and south, then east and west....rinsed gently in the machine, lay out to dry, then lightly pressed.

Table Runners
106" x 141/2"

14" x 18"

Made lots of placemats from leftover pieces and patterns from the Africa fabrics I have been using.....every mat is different sinnce I was using scraps. I also did not use any batting or flannel and just lightly stitched in the ditch.

Here are the friends I am sharing the day with ......

Quilting Quietly - that's me :)
