But you cannot have a flock of sheep without a sheepdog!

I can do anything I want to.  Or haven't you heard there are NO quilt police?

Bindings.. have 4 quilts that I'm doing the binding on today.  Had a quilt in a Progressive Drive Around quilt show this weekend, and one of the quilts I'm working on will hang in a local church on Mother's Day.

You are very welcome.  Where is everyone?

I'm around.   working on the Christmas quilt.  I've done all the SID (black on black) and outlining of the applique & embroidery (clear thread).  I had to take a few places out that I wasn't happy with, but a spritz of water and some rubbing with my nail took care of the holes.  So all is good.  I am planning on making a practice sandwich tonight to try out some ideas in the sashing and for the fills.  I discovered while doing the SID that the red sashing does not do well when you remove stitching so I want to make sure I now what I want before I start on that part.

bragging on my SID.  it is black on black but the contrast between the red & black was helpful


Pretty happy with the leaves, I stitched the veins and around the leaves, and long the spines of the embroidery.  I like how they puffed up a bit, especially the berries.  I didn't worry as much about bobbles on the leaves as I did the frames, so you can see a few places that aren't perfect.  Some of the worse ones I have redone, but I think I'm satisfied now.

I didn't do much on the nutcracker, just outlined a bit to hold him in place and make sections puff up.  Looking at this picture I see one little stitch on the feather that isn't where I'd like.  I might go back, not sure.  I keep telling myself it's my quilt, I can do what I want.  I can bury the tails or not (and I've done both).  I can redo or leave mistakes.  And it depends on my mood.  And how tired I am - haha.  I think I'm going to make myself a wall hanging to remind me - My Quilt, My WAY.  I only have to make myself happy, and if it doesn't make me happy I can redo it.
