I know, I know, I'm slacking off again! No blogging for me over the past few days. I have been productive in other ways, as in decking the halls and everything else that has an open space that needs to be filled with Christmas.
On our way to the cabin, we stopped in at Ladybugs Quilts in Manteca to deliver patterns. Cute, cute shop! The staff is so friendly and welcoming. They have a wonderful fabric selection that is just my style.
The girls have my Madrigal quilt on display center stage. I'll be teaching Madrigal in April at Ladybugs.
I've made two versions of Madrigal....a dark and a light version.
Here's a link to machine quilting Madrigal that I posted some time ago. I had fun quilting this quilt.
I hope to finish the decorating today. The twins are coming over after school to help with their decorating assignment. When they get older, they can take over decorating the WHOLE house. I should have taken a picture of the mess in this house with boxes and claptrap strewn from one end of the house to the other. Decorating is a messy job especially when you have to empty an entire, large closet underneath the stairs to get to all of the Christmas boxes. I had trails throughout the entire downstairs for three days. I felt like a gerbil in a maze.
I'll post the winner of the Sew'n Wild Oaks pattern giveaway tomorrow. Good luck to everyone who entered. Gail wanted me to pass on a "thank you" for all of your wonderful comments about her quilt. She's not been able to post a comment no matter how many times she tried.....frustrating! She felt like a gerbil in cyberspace.
