Three Finishes

Yippee....I have 3 finishes to show you.  They may be small, they may not be perfect but they are finished.

Autumn is here in Michigan.  I was in the mood for Pumpkins.

The first pumpkin is a Heart to Art Pattern.  I made one for myself a few years ago.  This fits perfect on my table frame and will be a Christmas gift for one of my girls.

I also made one of these for myself.  This one is a pattern by Black Mountain Quilts.  It is approx. 10 1/2" square and will also fit on the table frame.  I just need to add a bow to it.  Another Christmas gift for one of my girls.

If you remember....last year for Christmas I gave each of my daughters, daughter-in-law's and almost daughter a table quilt stand and 2 quilts to hang on them.  This year they will get at least 2 new quilts for the frames.

I finished the felt Christmas Tree quilt I won from Raspberry Rabbits.  It was my first time working with felt and fabric.

I hand quilted around the tree with red floss and the borders in black floss. Then I free motioned machine quilted around the tree.  The machine quilting is less than perfect but since it was done with white thread you really can't see it to well.  This one is mine and it too will fit on my table quilt stand.

We've had some beautiful weather lately...that is until this morning.  I woke up to gray skies and off and on drizzle.  So I made bran muffins (Jiffy mix) and ham and cheese omelets.  Then we took my hubby's car over to my daughter Kim's house.  (Some one at her apartment complex took the front bumper off her car...hit and run.  Her car was parked.)  After we dropped the car off we went to the park to take Sammie for a walk.

I didn't take my camera.  Wish I had since there were so many Geese, Swans, and Snowy Egrets.  Sammie was going crazy with all the different smells.  She ran this way and that way and dragged me all over.  I guess she has an ultra sensitive nose.  Then it started raining and we had to leave.  Thank goodness.  She almost pulled my arm out of the socket.

Going to get some sewing done now while I watch the last game of the Tigers season...until they go to the playoffs.

Hope you are having some sunshine where you are...if so send some my way. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Hugs, Cathy

Your finishes are beautiful. I have been in the mood for pumpkins too. I am smelling pumpkin bread in my future this afternoon. Our weather is very humid. SO wish we could get some cooler weather here.
