Oh Tree... It's finally done...

Sort of... It's in the dryer right now.

Here's the deal. It took a bit more time than I planned on. My 'new' machine decided to start skipping stitches while doing the quilting. That's after I ripped the old quilting out once, and my mom ripped out half as much again the second time.

Want to hear me drop the f-bomb?

Just have my machine start skipping stitches while I'm trying to finish a project.

Fortunately, I have Old Reliable to work with.

Funny... My husband asked what I'd do with the old machine when I got the new one. I just laughed. "I'll put it in the basement. Never know when I might need it." Sure enough - now I can drop the other one off to be looked at and still have one to work with.

Here it is... I'm pretty pleased with it.

Here's the other thing. I needed something in the middle of the stars. A button? Why not. I think it's pretty cute.

That said, this is probably my favorite square I've ever done. Hope you like it!

I'm planning to get it in the mail tomorrow.


Christmas will be here before you know it. If there's something you'd like me to make, shoot me an email...
