    Well, I finally finished.......

    this 2 1/2 year labor of love for my youngest grandchildren. It has 30 machine embroidered blocks telling the story of the Night Before Christmas. There are over 2 million embroidery stitches in this quilt.
    It is my very first completed quilt, so needless to say, it was a learning curve. I quilted it on my embroidery machine which was a challenge, but, all in all, I am pretty proud of it. Can't wait to take it to the kids in Florida in December. Thanks for looking.

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    It is easier to be wise for others than for ourselves.
