Yay - another one bites the dust hey hey!!!!

Well another UFO that is!  I have finished my second Christmas Quilt for the year.  Well it is a quilt top that is.  I set a goal last year to finally make some christmas projects out of all my christmas material.  I started cutting out projects as soon as I finished my chrsitmas present sewing and managed to get about four quilts cut out.  I got one sewn during a quiet New Eear's Eve and posted about it here and then rapidly got caught up sewing quilts for Queensland and New Beginnings Kits and, in between those, bits and pieces for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  But at last I have managed to finish the second Christmas Quilt. 
 It is only a simple pattern but I just love the blue Santa fabrics and one of the red and one of the green sashings are those really sparkly fabrics.  Just a shame it doesn't show up in the photo.
This is the same quilt with Guitar hero giving it the thumbs up!  He wouldn't let me take a photo of his face so I will just post an old one - he will never know coz he never reads my blog!

Guitar Hero is such a pain about photos being taken - he even refused to sit at the table for our Christmas photo because he hadn't had a shower and done his hair!  Thus is the most recent photo I have of him - taken the middle of last year!!!! 

Oh well, teenagers - thanks goodness they grow up eventually!

And now I am off to sort out what I am going to sew next - which UFO that is!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Congratulations on the completion of another UFO!! Is that a painted picture on the telephone pole(?) by your cute son? That is so neat. Is that a real advertisement? We don't have that here in the States so I'm wondering who paints the poles?

  2. And doesn't it look nice displayed on your new design wall! Thumbs up from me as well!


  3. Feels good to complete something, doesn't it? That is my goal too, to finish up some of those projects.
    And yes those teenagers do grow up and become real people, it is wonderful to watch!

  4. Wow - that's great - a UFO completion and red scrap challenge!

  5. It feels so good to get stuff finished. My son is the same way does not like to get his picture taken. So we have to sneak up on him. Happy Valentine's Day.

  6. Love your red scrappy challenge table runner. I also like that Santa fabric a lot. Congratulations on a finished quilt. Happy Valentine's Day.

  7. Good for you on this being the second Christmas quilt done this year! I am wayyyy behind and really should make a Christmas quilt for my own house (I have made one for my sister in the past). I am very fortunate that my kids will let me take pictures of them for ANY reason, think they are just used to having a camera pointed at them all of their lives.
