A Finish and LOTS of Plans!

Yes, I actually have been home long enough to finish something! My little Orange Peel quilt is done and I am so pleased with it. It is just the right size for the dining room table.
Here is a little close up...
I used a silk batting and I WILL have to find more. It was wonderful to hand quilt!
I have also finished the mystery quilt I have been working on. I had some left over pieces so I am putting them together to make a backing for the quilt.
I'll be basting several quilts (including this one) in the next 2 weeks so I will take pictures when it is laid out.
We are quickly approaching the season of secrets! I have a few projects I am working on that I can't share (yet!) but one thing I can share is that I am making two Christmas stockings for my cousins girls. This is a tough project. For 9 months I have been searching for the perfect fabric. I had a vision but I have no idea what that was. All I knew is that when I saw "that" fabric I would know it.
But I never found it so on to plan b...and I don't even know what that will be yet either. I did buy this little bunch of Christmas fabrics though. They are all from the same fabric line but I should be able to get two very different stockings from it all.
Back to the sewing room...
Happy Stitching!
