Some small projects

I know I am sounding like a broken record, but it was really cold here this morning. We had -6* when we got up, but it is up to 10* now. Of course the wind is getting up so it feels like -2* outside. Supposed to be in the 20's today. I guess we will see. I am about to run out of pictures to share, so I guess I need to get back to quilting. LOL I thought I would share the wall quilts I gave as gifts this year. A couple of them have probably been shared before. Sorry. The first two are Thimbleberries, but I don't remember their names and I'm feeling too lazy to look them up right now. (grin) I love the star above the pine trees in this one.
This one can be hung all winter, not just for Christmas.
I decided to take some of my redwork pieces and create little wall quilts with them.
When I create little wall quilts around my redwork, I like to make them very simple. That way it kind of makes the redwork show up better.
I did not do a good job of taking pictures of my projects this season. I neglected to get any pictures of the backs and completely forgot to take a picture of mom's table topper or the grandkids' completed gowns/pj's. Oh well, maybe I will do better next year. I made night gowns for Izabella and Ava from these fabrics. The pink was Ava's and the bluish Izzie's. I did not have Madison's measurements, so I bought her a pair.
I used this pattern for both the girls and boys, just different sizes. It was quick and easy.
This is what I used for Noah and Ashton's pj's. Noah had the salamanders and Ashton the dinosaurs.

I believe that is all for today. I need to get my housework done up. Thank you for visiting. Please come again.

Winona, you are such a wonderful, giving person. I love my kitty wall hanging you made for me and it is hanging here in my sewing room so I can see it every day! I am making something for you...but just like reading my blogs and answering e-mails, am waaaaaay behind. Hope to catch up with all my stuff soon!

Stay warm and have a happy day, dear friend!
