Finally doing stuff!

I'm working on quilty things- yay! Now when my Grandma calls and asks, I can actually tell her about new things LOL.

My mom requested a tree skirt last year to be done by Christmas this year, and even went so far as to buy fabrics and a pattern (not using the pattern, but it was a starting point!)... I've got parts of this cut, and the gingerbread down, and buttons picked out for them... I'm tea dying some white rick-rack right now, and have a Christmas tree shape ready to turn into a simple applique for 2 panels... go me!

Dad requested a lap quilt in blues, and I've got a group of blue repros that I'm thinking can go with some cream prints and work up i nto a quick split 9 patch. I haven't tried that pattern yet, but it looks fun and fast, so this is as good a reason as any!

My sister's wall quilt is almost a top, I think it needs just one more border. I bought fabric today for my MIL's present (an apron or tote bag, got enough clearance fabric for either one!)

Ahhh, feels good to be getting this Christmas stuff finally going!
