Here he is in his favorite spot in my sewing room catching a little nap or maybe his tummy just feels too full. Do you like my quilt display rack? I saw this on the Internet somewhere. Rods were placed under the table top on 1 or 2 sides and you hang quilts or tops. It also hides all the storage totes under the table.
Backtracking a bit, the Craft Show I went to in November was really great. I sold quite a bit and one of my bigger quilts, actually, a sofa or bed topper done in blacks and taupes. The day went by quickly but boy was I wiped by the time I got home. It took a few days rest to get moving again. Here is a snap of my booth at the end of the day.
I am feeling very much in the Christmas mood. I started this little bed topper to keep toes warm. I saw this in Connecting Threads and they used their rose manor prints but I didn't have time to order the kit. Anyway, why do I need to buy new material for every project...just go check out those 6 or 700 2 1/2" squares we cut out of scraps. The main part is together and I am working on the two borders consisting of holly and a nice bow. I am happy with how it came together so well and a great practice session of sewing accurate 2 1/2" squares together!
Well I am off to work some more on these holly leaves. I am going to link this to Leah Days FMQuilting. Have a great week.
