Merry Christmas!

I am taking a few days off from quilting to get the house cleaned and the last of the cookies baked. I hope you all have a very happy holiday and a prosperous and peaceful New Year! Thank you for being interested in my quilting passion! Susan

A happier day!

I just got a phone call from my daughter, Amy, in Baghdad and she has been given a big new job for the Army. She is now the editor in chief of the Advisor magazine, an armed forces publication. She is so excited and I am so proud of her. (Plus, it should be a bit safer job...after all, I am her mother).
Meanwhile, I have been baking like crazy and getting all the gifts wrapped, packed and on their way to kids and grandkids all over this country. Only one last minute Christmas order to quilt, and then I am on the regular schedule again. It should be a merry Christmas after all!
Here is a couple of photos of my Army girl. Pray for all the troops' safety while they are so far away.
Thanks, Susan

Different sort of job...

My customer had a comforter set and sheets she liked, and wanted the sheets to be integrated with the comforter and shams. Here is the resulting set, all quilted and on her bed! I had enough fabric to make the throw pillow, too.
