Hope that's traditional enough! The quilting, which I did last night, shows up better in this picture:
Donna, if you read this, let me know if this is what you had in mind!
I've also been working on finishing up some of those UFOs before the year ends. This poor thing has been on my design wall forever, just waiting to be trimmed and bound.
It started as a drop cloth under some painting/dyeing I was doing in my garage.
The hand stitching turned out nicely, I think, and so did the machine stitching.
Maybe a giveaway will help get me in the Christmas Spirit! Last September I ordered two books from Interweave, and waited and waited and waited for them to arrive. After about 3 weeks, I contacted Interweave and they told me the books hadn't even shipped yet! I cancelled the order with Interweave right then, ordered the books from Dharma's website (where they were cheaper), and they both arrived with in 2 days.
So, last week, the book order that I had cancelled over a month ago FINALLY arrived at my house--when I contacted Interweave, they said I might as well keep them--so I'm giving them away to someone out there!

Please leave a comment, and I'll pick one winner randomly for each of these books next Monday, December 3rd. If you'd prefer one book over the other, please note that in your comments and I'll try to accommodate your wishes. Due to shipping costs, I'm going to have to restrict this to US residents only.
