And Christmas IS almost here





I have one and a half more quilts to finish, two shark trinket carriers, and a toy fish to finish, 2 machines in the shop (yes - with about 8 hours of sewing the Pfaff 2140 (Eliza - I hope she turns into a lady soon!) ) is back I the shop  - yes I took it someplace else this time for repair. My good old faithful Pfaff 1471 (Matilda) had a part meant to last for 25 years - that us now over 29 years old that broke - I am thinking my next machine will be a Janome as there is too much plastic in the newer Pfaffs and they in my experience are just not as well made anymore.

Besides Christmas I have been working on some germ catchers - it is that time of year










Of course dollies need some too  (this is atop my iPad)v


 I made one smaller for the smaller baby,m but didn't get  picture before it was "needed"



And those nifty flannel squares turned into this not a nine patch quilt, made for a very dear friend







I wish you all the best of luck in finishing all your Christmas gifts, and a very Merry Christmas to you and your families!
