    Thank you all for your compliments. :)

    I learned when I was in the armed forces to make short work of many steps, when I'm working on projects, I use leader and anchor pieces, the only difference is my leaders and anchors are squares for future projects. I put two squares together and keep them beside my sewing machine, as I sew strips, I sew my squares together for my next project. It saves a lot of time... :)

    When I applique, I will do several projects then sit down and machine stitch around them. Usually I sandwich the project so when I do blanket stitch around the applique, I'm quilting at the same time. I save all left over bindings in a bin and use them up on projects, adding what I need to bind a project, bigger quilts I cut the binding when I start and sew them together and put them aside so I'm not trying to track down the fabric to bind the quilt.... I learned the hard way, made a quilt and found I'd used the fabric for something else had none left for the binding.... Ooops! LOL :)

    Very pretty! Did you leave the tops of the stocking open so Santa can stuff them?

    Love seeing all you creativity!
