It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....



First of all.....The quilt I showed yesterday is by Kathi Campbell - Heart to Hand
 
Does this quilt ever have a story.....after market I decided I needed new booth curtains, so I washed them, dismantled them and decided to make a quilt using them.  This is the top completed with my fine, long armed husband holding it.  I'm going to call it Center Stage.
 
 


 
I decided to put my initials here in the corner.  It reads, with needle and thread.  It is really a scrappy quilt, and after I wash it, it will look like an old timey quilt....that is what I want to achieve. Plus it will be nice and soft and ready for winter napping.
 
 
 

 
 
I had an oops, and accidentally made a little snip where I wasn't suppose to......so thus the itty, bitty patch.  Perhaps it will add to the charm! :-)
 
 
It snowed last night....a beautiful fluffy covering of about 2 inches.  More is predicted to be on it's way.  This is when I love having snow, so let it snow.
