These have been fun and quick. Just the thing for the past week.
And here they are all up on the design wall awaiting sashing.

Happy Stitching to all!

But at this rate I'd have them done before I leave so I'll just prep the rest for now. Hopefully this will be a fun and festive little distraction between my cooking and nursing duties!

Well I'm back to stitching on the hexagon quilt. As you can see the hexagons are complete and they are pinned to the medallion center ready to be appliqued down.
And the applique on my Pickled Lilies quilt is about half done too. Later today I will be doing more foundation piecing on the charity quilt that my guild is making so that should get me all set to tackle piecing the border for this one. The Christmas decorating is almost complete and while I'd like to be working on these projects I think its time to start thinking about gifts to make!

I've mentioned before that we have had some difficult times over the last few years and today is the 2 year anniversary of our son's near fatal car accident. So, in 2009 the holidays were in hospital and last Christmas he had a difficult jaw surgery. Unfortunately he needs a 6th oral/jaw surgery done this Thanksgiving but we are just so grateful that he is alive and has had a miraculous recovery otherwise, that we look forward to a real celebration this Christmas. And part of that is making our home extra festive looking. Let the decorating continue!
Oh and you may notice the unusual tree topper staring down. I'll be adding more woodland decorations to the tree and putting this fellow on the top of the tree just seemed right!
