First of Advent

  Wishing everyone a very peaceful and pleasant first of Advent

I managed to complete a quilt top for a gift for my sister-in-law.  She doesn't read blogs so I am safe showing it to you ! I got it done just in time to send to the quilter for it to be back before our trip.
It is a fun pattern to make but a lot of stitching. This one is a good-sized lap quilt.  I am hoping that the many colors will fit in with her decor.

Next up will be working on the house applique some more.  That has been such a delight, I am enjoying the class and the friendship so much.
I also have a couple of Christmas quilts "not quite" finished, really silly not to have completed those by now.  One is a completed top, another has a small amount of applique still to do.  I am thinking about them again because next week is already the Christmas project day for this year.  I will post about that next week, it is my Christmas treat to myself each year.
