Hard at Work ...

I've been hard at work in my studio recently getting a whole bunch of projects completed. Here's the evidence :

This is my stack of quilts that are ready to be quilted. Can you tell that my favorite color is RED?? ha! My "Spice is Nice" quilt is on the bottom, along with the back for it which is pieced in stripes of red and beige (you can't see it from this picture ... I'm hoping it will turn out well once it is quilted). My "Bless Us All" wall hanging is on top. (I finished my mom's wall hanging in this same design last year and it ended up winning a blue ribbon at the Quilt Show!) Finally, there are the backs to a couple of wall hangings that I have completed. I can't show the tops to them, because it would give away a major Christmas gift, and I don't want to spoil the surprise!

I have all of these quilts set aside in a pile because we're going for a sewing trip the cabin next weekend ... I'm going to drop two of these to be quilted professionally on our way through Columbia, and I'll finish the other two (hopefully) while I'm in the mountains. yay! I love crossing things off my list. More pictures once they're all quilted and done!

And, this is the stack of baby gifts ready to send out to friends of mine who have had babies recently. There must be something in the water, because my baby gift list never seems to get any smaller, no matter how much progress I feel like I'm making!

I do feel like I'm getting some things accomplished ... trying to reduce my "to do" list so that I can focus on some new stuff ...
