quilts I sent are all at their new homes!

One daughter got the Christmas quilt, one got her retro quilt, and the two little Beatles fans got their wild quilts. The house is clean and the cookies are all baked and boxed. Gifts are under the tree nd all is ready for Santa's visit. Merry Christmas to all my friends out there in blog-land, and a happy and quilty New Year!!

Grandma, What did you do today?

I started making the Christmas cookies! It may not look like much, but it was a day's work, for sure. More tomorrow! I love Christmas. Three days until the kids come.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

What did Grandma do today? Decorate the tree, get out the snowmen and Santas and make some cookies. Now, my feet are killing me and I dread making supper. Oh well, sacrificing comfort for the holiday festivities is not a bad chore...just a tiring one. Time for a toddy (or two)!

I finished the quilting of the guild raffle quilt, and now I have to get ready for another Christmas.Two of the kids can get away and come for the holiday, so it should be a festive occasion. I am now officially on vacation! Happy Christmas everyone!

Long day...tired feet!

All day on one border! Loads of marking and ruler work that will be difficult to see from more than two feet away. Oh well, it's done and now I only have one more border to go. It's the appliqued one, and I think it will be another long day tomorrow. I'm hoping to have my part done and hand off the quilt by the end of the week, then I'm on to another quilting adventure!! I love my job!

Another raffle quilt!

I started yesterday on my local guild's raffle quilt for 2012. The photos are from yesterday, only the stitching in the ditch was done. Never fear! Today, I began the quilting in earnest and worked all day on the main blocks and sashing...photos tomorrow! There are three big borders to do, too, so I'll be busy. Then I will hand it off to another brave soul for the sleeve and binding. Ho ho ho!! Done for Christmas...?

Busy week...catching up on Christmas orders

Boy, I am pooped!! It has been a whirlwind week of quilting here at WAZOO! and I am almost done with the Christmas orders from my customers. Some are off to northern climes for the holidays, and some just need to get their bindings on before family comes here. I wish there was more time in a day to get some of my Christmas sewing done, but I think just having two of the kids here will be gift enough. Anyhoo,enjoy the photos. Good night!

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas at WAZOO!

I think quilters suddenly realized how close to the holidays it is and hurried to get their Christmas quilts in. I have had the christmas music cranked and the Gammill humming to keep ahead of the game. Here are a few of the quilts from last week. I'll put this week's bounty up later in the week.

November is off to a good start

After a big custom order (can't show it to you...) I am happy to have November quilting off and running! The quilts are all very individual, and that keeps me happy when working. I love seeing what quilters are doing, and really love making their quilts come to life. What a great job!

All in a day's work

It was a nasty rainy day here today, so the nose was to the grindstone. I finished three customer quilts,(the baby quilt customer specifically asked for only stitch in the ditch and a big motif) and now I am eating a quick supper before going to my evening guild. Not looking forward to the drive in the pouring rain, but I have missed two meetings and really want to see what's going on there! Until tomorrow, I am a happy quilter!!
