Christmas in March

I did it!  I finished a project for March's Christmas thru the Year!  I made a little pillow that I embroidered and tea stained.  The hardest part was getting that rick rack on properly.  I really thought it would be a whole lot easier lol!  Mary beat me though!  She did a whole bevy of little cushions LOL!  And honestly, we didn't collaborate on what we were making :)

  

I just love the modern fresh colors of this quilt I did last week for a customer.  She used Snuggle's for the backing and it was so soft and luscious :)
 
 Last weekend, I took classes on locker hooking and rug hooking.  All week, in the evenings I worked on my locker hooking project...a table hot pad and finished it last night.  Locker hooking is not hard but I don't think I will be giving up my quilting for it. 

Learning lots on my new Grace and you know what! Pantos have a definite learning curve!!! There are rules you have to follow and posture positions to practice and a whole bunch of other stuff lol!  Just pray I can get it under my belt!

Happy Stitching and God Bless!

wow, you sure have been busy. Good on you to start on your Christmas projects now. I usually think about it so late that I can only get a few small ones finished. I'll try and keep your nudge in mind and start on one shortly. Thanks.

I want to make a couple of rugs using this method or maybe just crocheting or knitting them
how was your wrist after doing all that in one night?
