The Christmas Countdown is on!

    Hi everyone, sorry it has taken so long to get a new blog out. I finally started holidays and went up island for a few days. I have a very dear friend there, her and her husband will soon move away. It was the perfect time to go up to Parksville. Trudy and I both considered Michelle a sister, our friendship grew through Michelle. We both rely on each other when things get tough.



This is a quilt for Trudy and Gene's new home, with love from me!
       My sister also came along for the trip, while we were there we attended The Bethlehem Walk at Parksville Baptist Church. I'm including some photos but they don't do justice to how much work everyone went to. It was a great presentation and I loved it. A great start to the Holiday Season. Besides seeing great friends it was one of the highlights of my trip.

all wool....loved it!
      I have done a little sewing too. I finished my new tree skirt. I'm thrilled how it turned out, the crystals look like sparkling ice under the tree. I wish you could see it better.



Next on my agenda... start working on some of my class samples for the New Year.



 Well I better sign off for now, quilting with friends tomorrow need to get ready!

  1. Wow Natasha - that looks like a wonderful Bethlehem Walk. Love the tree skirt - every time I see another one I like I want to make one, but then don't know what I'd do with them all (maybe pile them up under the tree??!! LOL) Merry Christmas.
