Nearly finished and on with the Christmas sewing

Another big day of sewing yesterday - managed to get my Tree of Joy Quilt layered

And quilted
And bound - just the hand sewing to do and a kind friend has offered to do that for me to save my hands.
This is the label I have made - I am going to put it on a peach background to match the border of the quilt. 
With the Tree of joy Quilt all but completed it is time to organise the next lot of sewing and here 'tis.  First there is the coat hanger that I have to make for the Quilt Group Kris Kringle.  There are some potholders to make and then the peach, blue and pink pile includes the things I am making to go with the quilt  - pot holders and place mats.
I have decided to set myself a new challenge for 2011.  I am really happy with machine quilting - in straight lines - but I have a great machine and I think it is time I learned to do more than straight lines so I am putting it out there - by the end of next year at least some of my work will be freehand quilted and please feel free to remind me if I don't appear to be heading towards that goal!
