|Yes, that's a real palm tree, on our boat! They let them get to a certain height and then plant them on solid ground and start some more on the boat.|
Here's a bit of what I've been doing in the quilting department...
I have the centre of my 150 Canadian Women quilt done.
It has three more optional borders. I am pretty sure how I am going to finish mine. It will be humongous, the largest quilt I've made yet. At the stage you see here, it measures 85.5" wide by 92.5" long. This quilt makes my heart sing sing sing!
I've also worked on another project but all you'll get is this little glimpse:
And there are oh, about ten more I need to finish by December 31, ha.
On the lines of humongous, I've been terribly remiss in pumping up the excitement over Bernie's not-so-little giveaway. Between the Florida trip and a couple of other real life happenings, I didn't get a post out last week. Voting closed on the weekend, but I do hope if you haven't gone over to her blog yet to see the array of all 11 months of her Blogger Bundles, of which mine was the 11th, that you will now by going to her blog, Needle & Foot. One of the lucky voters will win ALL ELEVEN BUNDLES.
When she told us of her plans, I was gobsmacked. Not only has she been so generous throughout the year by giving a bundle away each month, and one to the blogger who chose the fabrics, and created a project for them, but now she has one last super-duper-sweet giveaway of all eleven?! I do hope you'll support her little shop as a thank you back to her.
I am planning a little Quilt Along with my bundle of fabrics, something several people had asked for. Bernie has procured the fabrics, so watch this space for more details forthcoming on this in the New Year. Think of it as a little pick-me-up in the doldrums of January/February. Here is my graphic once more from Bernie, and below it the fabrics in a row:
I've spent some time decorating our house inside and out:
