Great to Be Back

It's so nice to be back to some kind of a regular schedule. I'm still catching up, but at least the sewing machine has been humming a bit and it's starting to look a little bit more like Christmas around here. Isn't this a pretty set of fabric? It's for a special project.
I finished these pillows...simple, yet striking...light blue and chocolate brown...one of my favs. They're a present, but of course I can't say for whom.
I'm all caught up on my commission work. Yippee! I thought I'd share my latest 'On The Line' quilt. I especially love the quilts on this one.

The tasks for the week are sewing and baking. I'd better get some goodies baked. The boys are coming home in a few days. When they arrive, two more of my Christmas wishes will have come true!

I love your on the line quilt. So cute and looks like it must have taken a good amount of time. The fabrics you've got picked out are beautiful together too.

Good to see you back in the swing of things! The laundry line quilts are really delightful. :) Hope your two most precious Christmas come true as scheduled... (mine hasn't yet, as Em's flight got canceled due to snow here. She is suppose to fly home tomorrow, but now snow in London has closed Heathrow.... hoping and praying for my Christmas wish to come true.) xo

Laura said...

MightyMom said...

oh, the line with both quilts and clothes is PERFECT!! your best yet. needs a sheet or two and at least 1 pair of tidy whities and I'd steal it!! :-)

glad you're getting back in your groove.

I won't finish anything by new year...but I have gotten back to working on my momma quilt. having the littlest baby have surgery TOMORROW (egads) does give inspiration!

beth said...

I LOVE the fabrics! What line are they? The pillows are fabulous! Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Suzanne said...

I just adore that clothesline quilt. It would be such a good way to showcase the last scrap bits of favorite fabrics, the ones that are too small to use but too good to toss. Merry Christmas.
