Friday Finishes!

I was able to get a few things done this week and it is nice to finally make some progress on my unfinished items. The first is a BOM by Buttermilk Basin. I made the blocks, except for the largest one, so that got done and I was able to put it all together.

I know my piecing is wonky, it always is, but I can live with that. I added a single border to keep the main fabrics from raveling while I did the stitching, that will be trimmed down and another darker border will go around that. I did a feather stitch on the seam lines, hard to see in the photo, but I will take better photos when I finish it. I plan on quilting around the designs with a matching thread once I put the batting and backing on. There isn't a lot of room, so I think an outline, would be enough for this one.

I also finished some more pillows, using stitcheries that I made last year and some simple snowflake ones.  I have two more bags of balsam, guess I need to make a lot more and most will be with regular fabrics like the snowflake pillows and some with other designs, that I have in my stash. Some will go into gift boxes or as gifts and some will be hidden for others to find.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and holiday. I am finally feeling better from another bout with the flu and Bill has it now. I am hosting dinner so I will have to spend time getting the house rearranged and clean for company.

Let it Snow is delightful - just bet the grandboys will get a kick out of it. You're a very busy pillow making lady. :) Enjoy hosting dinner but take it easy.

I love the Let it Snow … just in time for the cold? the pillows are lovely too … whereabouts do you hide the ones to be found? I'm sure the dinner was lovely and hope Bill is better now... I'm sure he was not happy you shared with him that one!

"Let It Snow" turned out very good. You are keeping it for yourself, aren't you? Will make a very good holiday display piece.
