Missing Mom And Christmas in August


Last week was hard. Though Mom was very old (90), her mind was sharp. I knew she wouldn't last forever, but it still took me by surprise. She was in the hospital for a couple of days before she died.

The good part, my family and I here in Auburn were able to FaceTime with her hours before she passed (thanks to my brother). She was able to 'meet' her great granddaughter and visit with me, our daughters, and all our husbands. We all are so thankful for that!

I'm trying to get back in the swing of sewing - here are some UFO's I'm working on.


This is my Christmas row quilt - I'm working on some big stitch quilting.


I purchased this panel kit in Houston last Fall. I had the panel quilted first.


Now I'm in the process of free motion stitching chenille all around the quilt. I still need to go around the snowflakes and many of the leaves and flowers, but I have made progress! Once I have it done and the binding on, it will need to be washed and dried to fluff up the chenille.


And ta dah! I finished binding my Santa Swell quilt!


This is the fabric as used as backing. What a fun Christmas quilt! And there are enough blocks leftover to make a table runner.

I may not finished all these projects in August, but I'll give it a good try.

Stay safe.
