Projects I'm working on.....

......to keep me out of trouble. 
The ladies in the Canton Township Quilters group helped me out.
It is a small group of quilters that meet Wednesday evenings
....and for every completed pillow case they gave me...
I challenged myself to make another one.  They gave me 10 pillowcases so I made 10.
Tomorrow I will be sending 20 pillow cases to Carol
and she will deliver them to her friend Jami. 
....you can read about Carol and Jami's story here.


I'm also working on a Lynette Anderson quilt
....it's her Wonky Santa quilt
...the Santas are all fused and ready for applique...
I'm finding this to be a bit time consuming with the fussy stitching,
but I know it will be worth all the hours I put into making the quilt.
It will be awesome when it is finished.

stitching around the mustache is the worst!!

and making the little yoyo for the Santa hat is another UGH task!!
I'm not sure which of the buttons I like best....
I kinda like the button with only the X stitched.....
better than the one with the button hole stitch
around the outside of the wool button.
I could make a bigger X.
What do you think, what button would you choose?????
