quilt finish

I'm proud this is finished. It has taken up space and too much time. I feel like I'll have my sewing room back. It is a king size quilt that I was asked to make for a friend. I told him he was not that good of a friend then when he told me how much he would pay me I decided he was a friend for life. 50 plus years and still goin strong type of friendship. I used a thread that changed from light beige to dark brown. I think I really like it. Since its scraps some of the fabrics stand out but thats ok. It did make a dent in my scrap pile.

Christmas Stocking

Boy what ever happened to the summer. Last post was in May. Well here is what I sewed up this am. I started a job at Hancocks a popular fabric store here in Oklahoma. This is a cheater fabric that they are selling. It will be put up as a sample. I quilted the front and added some sparkle then sewed the back and lining in one step. Turned it all and pressed. Then I added the spur. I'm pleased with it.
