The ChristmasStar2012 is coming along... I started in August on a design that has been in the ol' head for couple years with the designing and stitching of the top.. Then the drawing and cutting of the homemade stencils.. Much of the center star was sewn using tape on the front side,,,
The it was flipped over and sections with curls and swirls were drawn onto the plain muslin and stitched there where I could see what I'm doing !!!
I use a #10 & #12 between needles for quilting.
I luv the back sides as much or more than the front sides !
I have 275 hrs in this quilt so far. and have moved now to the small snowflakes/stars on the edges.. These are very thick in places and I need to use pliers to pull the needle thru.... one stitch at a time.
Our October was a challenge and Our Thanksgiving was VERY Thankful !!
We had a good Thanksgiving with both my boys coming over for turkey.. Aaron helped get the tree up. Jake & Carson spent some time here and helped with the tree also. Carson is a Showman with sweeping arms and demoing just how things were hung so carefully.
............................ and he doesn't stand still !
and thennnn................... we turned ...... the lights... on......... 'ooooooooooItsBeautiful'....... he was in awe.
