Brought To You By the Letter Q

A little shiver ran down my spine. No, it was not caused by the latest round of Kansas City ice!!! I just got an email from my longarmer that my two quilts are ready. Ya Hooooo! These are Christmas presents for my sons. The marathon binding sessions will begin as soon as I pick them up after the guild meeting today. Stay tuned....

Pictures of the flimsies were on the computer--once. The Great Computer Crash of 2007 wiped them out so hopefully I can get decent shots of them soon.

During the "ice-in" I managed to get several more blocks for the Cotton Candy quilt stitched (no photo yet) , nine Hershey snowmen as favors for the mini-group next week made, and six more string strips for the guild's charity scrap quilt sewn.
I could sure use some Christmas elves.....

Those 'Candy' snowmen are just so adorable, Vera! Maybe next year I'll have to give those a try. :>

OK -- You've got to give me the scoop on the snowmen--- how did you do it? what's inside? Is there a pattern---

What great fun is going on, but I can see how a few elves would be helpful. =) Love the snowmen, look forward to seeing the new pics.

I'll come be your Christmas Elf Vera, I'd love to be working on anything that isn't my own right now. How exciting that your flimsies have been quilted, I can't wait to see them!
