    Thought I would share with you what I have been up to over the past week... The snow is laying thick on the ground, the temperature is plummetting fast, and I cannot get out without spending two hours digging the car out - quite frankly, I would rather be quilting...

    Nice, eh?

    Mistakes? No, but I see some JoAnn's fabric in there - the red with the gold stars? I am using that myself!

    Girls, girls - you say the nicest things. Believe me - there are a number of mistakes but I am pleased that my photography skills are up to the job of hiding them so well!

    I am not sure what to do with this top - a fleece backing and light quilting, or a more padded "traditional" quilt. I could use it as a wall hanging, or a tablecloth, although knowing my messy eating habits, I am sure I would spill something on it.

    Any suggestions would be welcome...

    Thank you for your kind comments. It was the first time I used strips and I was a bit nervous that I had started something too complex. But once I got the hang of what I was doing, and could form a picture in my mind of what I was trying to achieve, it went more smoothly.

    Go ahead and use it on the table! You could cover it with clear plastic if you need to while eating, then take it off after the meal. Or Scotchgard?

    Hi Quilting Cat and Ann Clare - thank you for your kind comments.

    I think I will use it on the table at Christmas. I will just take a chance. There is always washing powder and a washing machine on Boxing Day!

    Just made Pheasant casserole for my slow cooker (crockpot). My sister and family are coming for Sunday lunch and I thought a Game Pie was the thing for the cold weather. If it goes well, I might just cook it over Christmas...

    Beautiful, love the fabrics.

    Can't imagine all that snow when I am enjoying a nice sunny warm day.

    Sounds like it is a good time to stay home and do your favorite thing....quilt!! Your tree skirt is very pretty too. I think it is a tree skirt...looked at it quickly!

    Sorry, I looked again and see it is for the table. Makes it even nicer cause you can see and enjoy it more!

    Would you share the name and source of the pattern for this? It's really lovely!! And everyone here knows one of my favorite patterns is French Braid. Never seen it in this form, though. Thanks!!
