Some Projects Done

A long time top which I finally finished. I believe it was for the Charm Girls Quilt Along. I ended up setting mine different. Sorry the picture is so light. I think you can click on it and see more detail. I call it Hugs and Kisses,
This is the quilt I had been hand quilting and finally finished. It was the last of the stars which we swapped at Quilter's Hollow about 4 years ago. I  really  like the secondary blocks for the setting. It is all Thimbleberries fabrics.
This is my completed, quilted Schnibbles quilt Called Paganini. I'm doing the second year of the Mini's and this was the first one. I just got it quilted.
Guess I  ought to say a little of where i have been. No place just trying to get some of these quilts finished. I've been doing great. All healed and go back to the Dr. next week with new X-rays of my back. Get that done on Monday.

The only thing I have found I can't do is walk and shop very long without my back starting to hurt. When there is no place to  sit down to rest a bit it is not good. But that too will pass. I am anxious to see what it looks  like now and how it is healing around those cages.

This is the next mini which I just made this week. Of course it is not quilted.  It's from This and That and called Butter Churn

Hope you  all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and don't eat too much. Only my daughter will be up this year so it will be just her and I. Very quite and hope to get a few things done around here that I am unable to do right now.

I have also finally finished quilting the big Carolina Christmas mystery quilt that Bonnie Hunter gave us last year. As soon as I get the binding whipped down I will get a decent  picture of it.

Thanks for sticking by me and checking back. Posted by Picasa

Hi, Eileen!

It's good to get caught up with you and to hear that your back is progressing well. Isn't that wonderful! And your projects are beautiful. The butter churn is such an unusual setting, very nice.
You have a nice visit with your daughter on. Not sure what we will be doing. We had wanted to "get outta town" for a couple days, but the weather really is not very nice. We'll see. Happy Thanksgiving!

The charm pack quilt along turned out really nice! Well, they all have, of course, but I'm envious that you're done with that one because it's the same one I've been working on for Christmas. There's just never enough time, although you've seemed to find it! LOL!

I am just starting my LaPetite for this month. I'm not too excited about the pattern. Do you like it?

(I'm switching to my google acct to comment on blogs as others say it is easier to reply this way. I'm still your "favorite" niece. ;) haha! )
