Finally, a WIP is done!

And here it is...my version of Pennies from Heaven.
Off to the quilter she goes!
This will be a perfect spring table topper or a permanent display in my green guest room. I will add some beading after it is quilted. Most importantly, it is a flimsy!

I have finished a few other projects for the clubs at TOWQS.
The December Basin Banner.
A big thank you to my go-to-gal for stitching and embroidery, Debbie, 
for all her help with these little guys.

And this one is my favorite!
The December Petite Patchwork quilt from Lori Smith's Quilt Squares #3.
She is in my quilting queue, and will be finished soon.

I am excited to get these projects done because I can hardly wait to start working on a new BOM that will be offered at the shoppe:
We will be starting the BOM in early Feb. 
Woolen applique on homespun backgrounds. 
I want to make that winter red barn today!

Geez, it is mid November already.
I might have to start getting ready for the holidays, which I will host at my home this year. My mother is coming to visit for the holidays, so probably not much sewing will get done once she arrives.  I don't know though...she sleeps in and I am up in the wee hours of the morning!
My favorite time of day.

Are you ready for the holidays?

I would love to hear more about the BOM with barns. They have always been a homing presence foe me.

The Pennies From Heaven quilt is eye-catching. I was putting some quilt books away yesterday and the book the quilt is in was right next to where I slid them in. Reminded me that it was a someday want to do project.
You have a lot of finished things. The stocking with the candy cane piece is cute and I love the Lori Smith square. Nicely done.
