Dear little quilts...

While the big log cabin quilt is at the long arm quilters, there has been time for some "little" quilts - both making and receiving...I am a lucky duck indeed!  Guess who won a sweet little flying geese quilt over at Maureen's Pursuit of Quilts...


Isn't this just the best - those little guys are just perfect and quickly found a home to be displayed by one of my miniature Christmas trees...Thank you so much, Maureen (you are a sweetie!!)

Up until this week, the only snow we had was the embroidered word on this little pillow...it's just a little spot of color for the guest room...
A Buttermilk Basin pattern
It's nice to see the ground covered with a white blanket now - there is more predicted for the weekend and if the temperatures hold true, we will have our white Christmas...

Our quilt history study group - aka The Liberty Ladies, had the annual Christmas cookie and gift exchange last week...

This is the heavenly hand knitted shawl that I received - isn't the color yummy...
And this is the little quilt I made for my exchange..."Brass Buttons" from the Civil War Legacies book by Carol Hopkins...

Have to get going on some serious baking in the next few days and finish preparing the house for the arrival of our Dave and Jena - next week! Seems like one stack of things-to-do lists gets taken care of and another list takes it place...and so it goes at Taylorsoutback...
This is linked to Miss Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday where the letter of the week is "D"

Darling, dear and delightful! Lucky you with the wins, and your Brass Buttons is also delicious. It is that busy time of the year isn't it, but all exciting with plenty of family times to look forward to. Enjoy!

Visiting from Alphabet Thursday ( and thank you for visiting my blog :)
I have to tell you that I visited your china post last week, and then went off on a long quilt tangent, lol!

I thought "WHY have I been doing Alpha T the last six months or half the alphabet at least and missed this lady? " :)

So...I am not very good at sewing or quilting but I try here and there and your site started me off looking around at yours and some other sites via yours and thus I thank you :)

I love the sweet little quilts, especially the one under the tree. Isn't it fun to get out the Christmas stitchery and display it all over the house?

Maureen said...

Glad you found a place for the little quilt. Your new shawl is lovely and so is the little quilt you made for the gift exchange. Enjoy your snow - I wish we had some.

What beautiful works from your needle and your friends' needles! I can just imagine that the exchange must be one of the nicest in the country! Like you, I have to get busy if we're to have any cookies!
