Another horse quilt...

This one is a Christmas gift for my husband who prefers earthy tones and simple patterns. Something tells me this will end up in the Tipi. The free motion quilting was fun to do on this woven fabric from Japan.

Deck the Halls!!!

Decking the halls... with a little help from some friends... Japanese (I think) dolls from the 1960's that I found at the Sis Boom sale. Don't quite know why I had to have them... my husband seems concerned....Does anyone remember ''Edith the Lonely Doll"?

My trip to London with Genevieve

I was lucky enough to visit my gorgeous 20 year old daughter in London for Thanksgiving. 4 much needed days to just hang with her in her new city. She is such a great traveller! I am so proud of her. We had a ball and especially enjoyed crashing in our uber-tiny hotel room after a day of sightseeing, eating Cadbury bars, and laughing ourselves to sleep. Oh, No!!!!! I've turned into one of those bragging bloggers!!!! Hey...this is fun...

Christmas Time has arrived in Wilton, CT

And Jennifer Paganelli set things off in style! Her sale was smashing- I went all 3 days! And she's adding another day this friday at 50% off! What a pal.
She allowed me to sell a few quilts and things at the sale and the hobby horses were the big hit. And fun to make, too!
I have been struggling to write out my pattern that I promised I would share of the Sis Boom Stripper quilt, but have enlistd my friend Roxy from Quilters Alley. So, I haven't forgotten all of you, but be patient. Then I will attempt a tutorial for the Hobby Horses.
