Dear Santa

Yo Whats up Fat Guy..

My friends over at the Fat Quarter Shop told me to cruise through their site and pick something for ME!! Guess what? I think I've been really good this year, my must be completed projects for 2009 are DONE and I've even started my 2010 projects early. I've kept my needle sharp, my bobbins wound and my stash somewhat in check. So if you should happen to find room in your sack for that special gift for ME I'd really really like the Blessings Fat Quarter bundle. (See picture below)

Even though it would initially be mine, the finished project would more than likely be donated to our local Domestic Violence shelter to be given to one of the women who seek a safe place to live. I really don't ask for much, but in the spirit of giving tis better to give than receive and I'd give the bundle away after I've cut and sewn it back together. So it's more like I'm the middle man.

Thank you Santa. And as always, there will be beer and good snacks in the fridge when you get here. I know you get tired of cookies and milk.

Vanilla Splash

This is my sister's quilt. It's a simple design with just a splash of color. I'm one binding closer to 2010.

The front

And a view of the splash of color, the red binding really sets it off.

Also, it appears that I'm not being notified of comments that are posted to my blog. This has been happening for about a week now. Anyone else having this problem? My Blogger settings haven't been changed so I don't know whats going on. I will reply to your comments as soon as I can.

Also this is my 80th post..Hmmmmmm :)

Final project of 2009

My last major project of 2009 is finished. All I have left to do is put the binding on 2 more quilts and then on to my 2010 projects.

I should have the binding on one of the quilts today since I have the day off and I'll post pics as soon as I'm done.

But for now enjoy the boots!

This is the completed wall hanging.

Here is a close up of the simple quilting and the piecing detail. I quilted 2 horseshoes and 2 stars (the stars didn't photograph well) and thats it. I didn't want to take away from the boots too much.
