    2011 Christmas Projects I completed.

    I was very busy during Christmas completing 2 queen size quilts (started by a manager 12 years ago), several table toppers, mug rug set, pillow cases, pot holders, cosmetic bags and an apron. I am not as talented as many of the members on the board, but I love to make things for others. Enjoy and Happy New Year.

    You are not allowed to ever say that again. With these pictures as proof of your abilities, and creativity you are equal to most of us. They are great in color, style and are well made.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Your table toppers are gorgeous. I love them. And your potholders are great, too.

    We actually collect old Singer machines. However the one that I really love is my 1852 Grover and Baker Treadle. The cabinet is made of Walnut.

    These pictures were taken while it was still in storage. I will be glad to get it cleaned up and working again. I also love my 1903 Singer Model 27 that is my avatar.

    DO NOT say you are not talented ! You are, those table toppers are to die for. 3 lashes with a wet noodle as Ann Landers used to say. You did a great job on everything you made and they are lovely. Give yourself a pat on the back.

    Thank you so much for the kind words. I have always lacked self confidence. Wanabee Quilting, you are a confidence booster.

    Exactly what I was going to say. Your projects are beautiful, and anyone who receives one as a gift is one very lucky person to know you. And I love all the old machines.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.
