It's done! Le Jardin's last block was completed on Sunday. I added the outer borders after joining all the blocks together yesterday.
It turned out to be quite large, and yes, I know you have the dimensions to start with, but actually seeing how big it is, is a different story!
Now a new Block of the Month (BOM) will take it's place next month! Merry Christmas to All: take a peek. This one has a ton of embellishments...ribbons, buttons galore, bells, etc.Merry Christmas to All

Well....seeing that Halloween designs are one of my favorites...there was no way I could pass up the new "Branch" from Bent Creek. A Halloween Branch! I bought the first chart...the fabric...and all the threads yesterday during my visit to The Stitching Post with Carol. (She got this one, too!) When I came home and was looking at everything on the table...something came over me and made me just start it right away!
My progress from yesterday afternoon, evening and this morning.
What actually made me get this one was the cute little owl who will soon be sitting on that branch. An owl with a little witch's hat!

Well, I should have said "two" friends. "Three Friends" is the name of this block. There are three characters for this block from the Friends for Christmas quilt. A penguin, a snowman, and a long-legged reindeer. :) I have two of them attached for now.
There will also be a small star block in upper left-hand corner, as well as a stocking, a birdhouse and a little birdie.

When I first saw this pattern, it was the one that got my heart racing and thinking...."It's time to start quilting again," (after a very long hiatus). It is Baltimore Bunnies by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. I have always liked the Baltimore Album quilts, but would never have considered making one. However, when I saw Anne's vesion with the little bunnies...well...it was love at first sight. But I did not start this one right away. It was quite intimidating to think about all those little applique leaves, the skinny, skinny bias binding for the stems and the tiny, pieces involved in completing this quilt. Now with a few pieces of applique "under my belt", so to speak...I started it. Here is my first block on my Baltimore Bunnies:
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the birthday wishes. Another year! They sure are flying by so fast now. :))

Whoo Hoo!! More lovely presents in the mail! How lucky am I? There is a great project book for felt...I love the Christmas house pattern in this one. A little kitty notepad and two very pretty ribbons - one with ladybugs (my favorite) and one with butterflies, which is very light and delicate. And...crystals for the Baroque Garden I am working on by Chatelaine Designs. :)) Almost forgot the little white ribbon roses! Everything just made me smile. :)) BUT this

my true love gave to me (go on...I know you're singing it, LOL!) Six geese a-laying...:
My small beginning on Nora Corbett's Twelve Days of Christmas for day six. A pretty little goose with lots of eggs surrounding her. :)
A little cross stitch again....just a little break from the quilting projects for a bit. Don't worry - not too long. All those BOM's will be arriving soon! :)
I want to thank everyone for stopping by to take a peek at what I am doing. You know there is always something going on around here.:)
