This and That Thursday

I’ve been working hard on a commission quilt the last few days. I won’t be able to share any of that until after Christmas. But here are a few other things I’ve been working on as well. First, a new stocking for the new SIL.

I just buy cheap stockings and machine embroider names. We are getting too many to hang on the fireplace!


And some mittens for the grandsons.

I’m very rusty at knitting as well as using my embroidery machine. I’ve also been busy taking care of the grand dogs.

As you can see, they are big helpers in the sewing room!

Little E turned two this week. We had dinner and a small cake for him. Big brother showed him how to get the good stuff!


I want to say once again how very much I appreciate your friendship, your comments, and your taking the time to stop by for a visit. I wish I had more hours in the day to respond to each one. It isn’t always possible, but I do read each one.

Come back tomorrow to see my finished Vintage Broken Dishes quilt!
Have a great day!

  4. I so enjoy the peeks into your life, Katy! Look at all those stockings! It just makes your heart smile, doesn’t it!? Those two little guys are just adorable. The grand dogs look pretty excited about being in the quilt room. Looking forward to seeing your broken dishes finish!
