WHAT A FUN PRODUCTIVE DAY!!

Last night after supper, I sandwiched this quilt and quilted it. Just finished binding it.

I wanted to show you what I did with my little candy cane topper. It is starting to look festive in our home. No tree yet.


I had a friend come over today, while she prepped her a candy cane topper, I got all the bindings ready and sewn on the next three toppers and a runner (will show later)

Trust me, the above toppers look so much better in person.

What a great day! Wonderful finishes, one pulled out of that endless UFO pile.....and an awesome friend to keep me company. Hope all of you had an awesome day as well....

I do think it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!!

Looks like you had a great day to me. Love all your projects. And I believe finishes need to be celebrated. I'll bake cupcakes tomorrow. Let's celebrate with a finish party!
Great job!

Adorable quilt! It is a happy one.

I made some of those Thimbleberries candy canes some years back for a row by row quilt for a fellow quilter. They were so fun to do! Love your toppers.

You are such a busy camper. I have slacked off during the week. I need to get back on schedule this weekend or all my Christmas presents are not going to get done.
