A Lazy Sunday Sewing . . .

It has been a busy Thanksgiving weekend around here.
I got to see my niece and nephew and take them into the city . . .
I visited with lots of friends and family . . . 
And I did a little bit of sewing . . .
I wanted to do more, but I'm lazy today . . . 

I have been quilting my White's-Lights challenge quilt,
and it is coming along nicely.

Yes, I seem to need my reading glasses for everything now.
(I even had to put a larger font size on my phone.  Arrrrgh!)
I have the binding picked out and ready to go.
Hoping to finish this baby for our Metro Mod meeting next Saturday.

I also had the pleasure of visiting a baby quilt 
that I made 18 years ago!
This is a well loved quilt!
No one is allowed to touch it!  HA!

You can't believe that it is still holding together,
just by a "thread"!  Haha.
I am so thrilled that it has been so well loved.
And I'm told it is going to college next year.
I think I might need to make a little pillowcase for it to go into!

On another note . . . 

I received this beautiful wool felted hat this week!
It is a thank you gift from Carolyn for my writing of the cap tutorial!
How sweet is that!!  She made this!

It went on it's first of many chilly walks today and it was perfect.
Thanks Carolyn!

Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend . . . 
Now back to reality! Whatever that is . . . 


  1. That 18-yr old quilt has just about been loved to death. Heartwarming! Your Light quilt is looking great and I love that hat. What a great present.

  2. Love the color in that first quilt. Love the OLD quilt that has been loved to DEATH! and the that too! ;)

  3. Love the old quilt and looking forward to seeing the new quilt next weekend :)

  4. The whites /Light quilt is georgeous. Mine is resting since I found Aussie Hero Quilts at your house.
    I don't know how to thank you but Jan-Maree is so enthusiastic it contagous.
    Wonderful blue hat. Felted wool has a magic all it's own. Stay warm.
