Eight of Twelve!

Well, it snowed yesterday....6" of snow...wet heavy was wonderful! DH and DD and I spent the day all snugglie warm watching college football!! Happily Cinncinnati beat Pitt and WVU beat Rutgers so they are 1 and 2 in the Big East! Cinn will be going to a BCS Bowl game and our Mountaineers will be going to the Gator Bowl!! Waiting to see who they'll play against.

Along with watching football I handstitched the binding on five more baby quilts for a total of eight finished for DD's Christkindlmarket this Saturday. Now I can breath a little better. If I get the other four done that will be great but I'm not going to stress about it if I don't.

I just can't get over how much better the quilts look after they have been washed and dried...too bad I can't look better after a shower and a blow dry!:)

Actually I do need to get one of them done in time for the Market, this one with dogs driving cars...for Susan....I know she is waiting to see it finished!;)
I sure hopes it snows some more soon!:)


  1. I can't believe how blogger won't keep words together...I'm not fixing that "handstitched" word because I have tried several times.

    I mean I'm just trying to make it all look more interesting but it won't cooperate!;)

  2. Ha, Blogger does that to me all the time, don't sweat it! Your handstitching looks fab even when Blogger tries to muck with it! You have been busy, the results look just terrific.

  3. The space before "handstitched" just looks like a pause...for special effect. And you should pause and give yourself a big pat on the shoulder! These all look great!

    We had our first (sticking) snow today, too. So far only an inch or two. I'm so not ready for winter.

  4. So great! you've really got a great group of quilts here!!

  5. What pretty pictures of all the quilts lined-up! You are on a roll!

  6. Don't you just love handstitching the binding in front of the TV? It helps me sit still. ;) your quilts are gorgeous!

  7. Wow! You sure have been productive! Beautiful work.

    And thank you for adding your pictures to the Red Pepper Flickr Group - very happy to have them there!
