W I P Wedensday

waiting for more quilting...
... and Christmas

Snowed under ... sew to speak I'm working on a winter themed quilt and I am quilting snowflakes over the large pieced areas of the quilt. Snowflakes are done and now to do the surrounding areas of the quilt.
On Monday I did a bit of a tut on how I quilted the snowflakes. It was quite easy and I think I would do it again.

I am also knitting a pair of socks one down and one to go and then there is about 6 more balls of yarn to work up.  I just love the feel of home knit socks.

I did complete this little runner for a bride of this summer, I had asked her if she had a color she would like in a runner and she had said "Rider" green our provincial football teams color , sew here it is . I chose to use a Christmas fabric on the back sew that it could be used at different times of the year as well.

I did get a start on some holiday cooking ..... the cabbage rolls are in the freezer next will be the apple strudel.

Well that`s it from me be sure to check out what the others have been up to on THE NEEDLE AND THREAD NETWORK with the link at the top of my side bar.
