I also finished one of the chemo quilts that I had here at home. It was a top and the batting. I put flannel on the back and practiced my free motion quilting and , of course, bound it. It is now in the stack waiting for the hospital to give me a call when they need some more. It makes me feel good to pass along something that gives warmth to another, especially at a time when they need it.

Happy New Year to all......

In Gander, my home town, I came across this pattern...it called my name despite the fact I'm really not supposed to add to my Christmas "stuff"...I'm supposed to downsize and get rid of some things. But this one was fun to do and I really like it. It tickles my funny bone. The top reindeer is "Chilly" , he's got snow on his ears, head and nose and his teeth are grimacing with cold...poor baby...the second one was supposed to have ornaments on his antlers...didn't have any so I hung snowflakes ...ergo his name is "Flakey" and the third one has Christmas lights on his antlers and his name is "Bulby". The fourth one is , of course, "Santy". The designer did not name them, I did... yeah, I know I'm just a big kid at heart.

Anyway, I really liked this one so I puttered away and finished this portion tonight. There is supposed to be another border...a darker blue ...it's nice and I like it but I really prefer to make quilts that will fit a bed and this one does not. Soooo.....I have to decide whether I am going to make this a lap type quilt or buckle down and add wider borders and some more applique and make it a bed size quilt...I could do that since I have a quilt in the frame I am hand quilting now and it will take me a while to get done. Trouble is, I am not sure what I want to put in another border...I'm thinking ...holly and lights like the ones around the Ho Ho square...not all the way around...maybe two opposite corners and leave some space for some fancy quilting...which I love to do....any suggestions?
On another note, this is what we saw out our patio window yesterday....a momma and DH thinks ...last year's fawn. Whatever , they had a great feed.....
