WIP Wednesday~Post Vacation Catch Up~Oh My Gosh It's December!

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced Whew! Thanksgiving is over...onward we go to Christmas! Three short weeks! I spent Thanksgiving in Spokane, WA, Coeur d'Alene, ID, and Leavenworth, WA. It was a nice, long weekend. My daughter, Shannon and I had a nice road trip. This is Leavenworth, WA. A town that fell on hard times and then re-created itself as a Bavarian village. We had a great time!
Shannon finally got to try fondue:
My daughter, Aubrey & her husband Chris house-sat for me. When I came home I found this:
Aubrey had bought me "mini-bolts" for my fabric (from a comic book store no less...who says they're worthless!), ironed all my fabric and put it on bolts. It now looks like this:
This was an early Christmas present for me~I love that girl! But I have to say...my stash is not very impressive! I'm working on finishing Shannon's quilt, using a stitch-in-the-ditch for it, may put an X on the log cabin blocks...quilting a big quilt on my home machine is a new and SCARY process for me, but so far, so good:
Aubrey is finishing up her Christmas stockings...year 2 of this project, big stockings...we don't mess around!
Shannon is proud of her rainbow pancakes:
I'm on the holiday push...things I can't show you yet! What a week~wonderful time with family. Now back to sewing! Thanks for stopping by~Duke is happy to see you!
Hope your holidays are swimming along :) ~Diana

  4. Quilting your own large quilt can be quite intimidating! Just take it one small 4" section at a time and before you know it's finished! The stocking looks perfect for holding all sorts of lovely things!

  5. Love that quilt! Just beautiful!

  6. cool colorful pancakes! my pup is here by me too, aren't they the best?

  7. Fondue sounds great! Love the new machine and your daughters stocking is wonderful:)
