Lil' Red

I've done quite a few Little Red Riding Hood quilts.  I never tire of her, she is so sweet and I love the colors.

I've been hoarding my stash of Walk in the Woods for a long time.  I mean LONG.  It's sat on my shelf waiting patiently for me to get to it.  I finally took it out and decided to play with it.  Why did I wait so long?

Then, lo and behold I was at my LQS the other day and they had the grey Mr. Wolf fabric on sale in the back!  What?!? So yah, I grabbed it and had her cut me off a chunk for the back. I almost love the back as much as the front.

I just did some straight line quilting, minimalistic style.  I love how it folds and drapes.  This quilt made it to Instagram and was snatched up by a friend of mine.  Thanks Amanda!  ♥

It's super overcast today. And gloomy.  So pardon the grey gloomy photos. :(  Supposedly the cold front is moving in this week friends.  Our days of sunshine are numbered. BOO.

Over the Thanksgiving holiday I spent most of my time in my sewing room making holiday gifts.  Which was A.OK with me as the entire family but me was sick!  I've dowsed myself in Airborne everyday, washed my hands so much they are raw and luckily I haven't gotten their bug.  Phewsh!  Knock on wood - it stays that way.  Mr. Robot Husband has been quarantined to his TV room...he's the sickest of everyone, poor guy. :(

Anyway- I have more to share on holiday sewing but more on that later.  I've enjoyed seeing what everyone has been making for the holidays!  Very inspirational!!  I have WAY too much to make for Christmas...I hope I can get it all done!!
