Christmas card Quilt and ss stockings

Good Sunday morning all!   I am sure like most people we are all busy this time of the year..This weekend is my baking weekend but I wanted to stop and say hi and to show a few pics of my stockings that I did for my new secret sister and my Christmas card quilt I started oh probably 2 years ago.  When I went to retreat I asked a friend of mine to show me a way to put binding on by my machine and she did (thank you very much Sandi) so now it is finished and hanging up.  This was a pattern from Chattanooga Quilt shop and it was fun putting it together...

 I have also finished a few gifts that I cannot show yet but can show my double small stockings that are for my secret sister and I will be getting those in the mail tomorrow so I wanted to post a pic before they go all that is left to do is fill them up..enjoy and I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season filled with family, friendship and of course good food..........

Good morning everyone...I see it has been awhile since I posted but believe me I have been busy every single one of those days.....I hope you all had a very wonderful thanksgiving day with friends and family, we did.....
Since moving my M-I-Love down from Jersey it has been an adventure for us as well as for my m-i-l.  She has been a pleasure to have here but does have allot going on and other than getting her situated with a new primary doctor she also has 7 specialists to see, a few of whom we are on a cancellation list or have to wait until Feb and March which I do not think she can wait to see her rheumatoid doctor for that long so hopefully we will be getting it sooner...
I did manage to get a few things done.  My next atc's are already out the door and the theme was "Black or White" so I say why not both....
I also made my m-i-l a few pillow cases for a birthday gift and she just loves roses so that is what she got and they came out pretty nice...

So I did get to stitch a little.   I also was able to finish a Christmas wall hanging, a couple cuddle quilts and the top of my husbands "route 66" quilt but I will show pics of those in a day or so.  Would like to have it quilted before Christmas so hopefully that will get finished.
Well just touching base with everyone and wanted to say "hello" and hopefully things will get back to some kind of routine by the New Year.  Have a wonderful day!
