What I've been working on........

Sorry to have been neglecting my blog lately, but I have been working on a Christmas present and couldn't show it here because "someone" might see it!

So here is something I have been working on, too. A magnolia flower embroidery set off with little one inch squares. I have all the little one inch square alternate blocks done, but still have at least half of the 40 flower blocks to go. I am using Sulky Blendables thread and it is great! The flowers are fun to do. I have made a couple of Project Linus quilt tops, too and need to get them quilted---that's the part I tend to put off! Maynard's been too busy to help me out on the PL quilts, so I have been quilting them on the Bernina. I've grown afraid of the Little Gracie Pro II for some reason and don't like to quilt on it----afraid I will mess it up. But the Bernina works great for quilting the smaller quilts.

Also in the middle of putting together a quilt from the "Farm Fresh" line of fabric. Maybe can show that one soon!

We have been getting some "teases" of rain here. How about in your part of the country?

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Jan that is so pretty! Yes, things tend to slow down in blogland about now, everyone's working on secret stuff, lol. Sorry to hear you're only getting teased with the rain, I know you guys need a good long soaking. It's supposed to snow here tomorrow, yikes...
