This has been a fast week!

What a fast week this has been. Lots going on here. We are all busy at the shop getting ready for Road. This time next week we will be there. I can't wait. Working the show is something I look forward to every year. Fun to catch up with people you only see once a year as well as the many friends that have been made through the shop over the years. Wait till you see all the wonderful quilts and kits we have. Look for some pictures next Thursday!

My quilt is back from being quilted, now for the hand work. The quilting just brings the quilt alive, and yep it will be ready for Road!

Nan wrote me about working on a Christmas project a month so she will be ahead by Christmas next year. I had the same idea last year and my friend Carol was on board for the ride...only problem was I only made it to February. Well according to her January:-), so I wasn't very successful. Now I think I'm ready to give it another whirl, so Nan here I go. This is a kit that I got in Houston when I went with Xmas Pinwheel Table Runner. Think this is something that should be able to get finished by the end of January----Ok Carol, we'll see :-)!!

Another project in the works is this Block of the Month I got from The Country Loft. Just love the fabrics, and the blocks are cute as can be. It will be fun to do some applique again, it's been a while.

It has been fun decorating for Valentines day. I completely forgot about this little raggy heart quilt...and this pink and brown log cabin quilt is one of my all time favorite quilts. My friend Deb coaxed me in to making it with her. A very good memory.
Lastly, I would like to leave you with another one of my favorite things ......NECCO WAFERS!! Love them!
Tomorrow I'm meeting Sharon. for some fabric shopping and lunch.....I'm sure I'll have some stories to tell!!!! Wishing everyone a happy weekend with some time for quilting and crafting thrown in! See you later alligators!

I love them all! The Raggy Hearts is one I've wanted to make for a couple of years now. What pattern is that?
Thanks for all the pix.

I didn't think that quilt could get any prettier, but it sure did! The quilting is wonderful on it!
I'm proud of you for choosing a project to work on for Christmas every month, and such a cute one! I've gotta get busy and choose a project to work on!
Love the BOM from The Country Loft!
I have a total weakness for Neccos - I got rolls of all chocolate ones for Christmas - yummy! One more thing we have in common, Cheryl!
I KNOW you and Sharon will have a wonderful time!

Fiona said...

Love that raggedy heart quilt - keep meaning to do a quilt like that but so far all I do is look at pictures of them.

Ginger Patches said...

One Christmas project every month is a great idea, I may have to try that.
Love your valentine quilts and that picket fence behind your necco's I love that line!

Andrea said...

If you ever get tired of the brown and pink log cabin I will give it a good home - lol !! It is beautiful.

A beautiful quilt, some fun projects, and great decorations to have out for valentine's. And a roll of necco wafers? Perfect.

O.K. so do you know that there are also Chocolate Necco Wafers? They are also the best!
Ragged Heart Quilt is great.... so many quilts sooo little time! Keep up the good work!

Kim said...

Hey Cheryl! I'm trying to catch up with you! Love all the quilts and really like that candy cane fabric from the runner kit--do you know who makes it and what line? I wouldn't mind starting Christmas a little early too! LOL!

And did Sharon REALLY say "I love VD?" I just KNEW IT!
