Done!

Sophie's stocking!  Finished!  Complete!  Ready to stuff.  This is her third Christmas though.  Nonetheless, this unfinished project was weighing on me and I really needed to take it off the UFO list.

Also, I have new niece!  She is a darling little thing!  We were so excited to go meet her yesterday.  The kids were very excited to have a new cousin. 

Anyway, I put together this pink and black quilt.  I always refer to this as a wall paper pattern, I don't know if I have seen it called that somewhere or not.  I used Minkee for a few of the stripes and various cottons on the rest.  I love making baby quilts.  It's always quick gratification.  My sister-in-law liked it, which is of course the best part. 


I have no further sewing projects between now and Christmas, which seems kind of weird.  Not to say that all my UFO's are all gone, I just don't need to get anything sewn for Christmas specifically.  I did a lot of knocking things off my unfinished list.  I am hoping for an uneventful January where perhaps I can knock out a few more.  Then I need to start and finish some new things as a stash reducer, more specifically, a scrap reducer.

Wow. When we talked on Friday, you hadn't even started a quilt for O. I think I've heard those called wrapping paper quilts -- but I think rolls of wallpaper work as well. I'm very impressed that the stocking is finished. What a lot of work! Have a good Christmas!

Wow look at you! I had no idea you were such an accomplished sewer! I would love some help some time! I would love to learn how to do the tumbeling blocks pattern! I know you are super busy ... bust someday maybe when things wind down :)
