Grammy is done for another year...

The three quilts made it done in time (barely.) Two machines in the shop before Christmas is NOT a good thing, Wore the motor out of my 1471,,,and the 2170--well can we say buyers remorse and my next machine will NOT be a Pfaff! Leaning Janome...

So the three quilts were for my three grand kids (duh). For the 5 month old grandaughter:

The back is all the pink floral

For the 5 year old granddaughter-front:

Back-with sections for tea parties:-)

Ir has already served tent duty:

For the 2.5 year old grandson -front:


All were from the "Take Five" pattern by The Teachers Pet. It is one of my favorite patterns.

Nothing is a good as seeing the faces with new quilts :-)

How was your Christmas--hope it was a good.

Happy sewing.

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!
