Hi there readers!
Just sharing a few odd bits & pieces to fill a space while I put the finishing touches on my first customer quilt of 2014. In some ways I have had a slower pace over the holiday break, in other ways I haven't.
We have been busy on the home front painting, so this meant a wee break from quilting, but I am back into work full steam ahead!
My head held a list of 'Leeanne projects' for the holiday period, but painting took over! I find the hours in the days are never what we think. Still I did manage to finish few things between family visiting etc..........don't tell anyone, but I still haven't taken my Christmas tree down!
Seven Hand towels got a make over, from plain towels to towels perfect to give as a gift.
Adding a strip of fabric & in some cases RicRac or lace. These now rest in my gift box awaiting a birthday or 'thinking of you' gift.

|see the rusty safety pin?|
The white fabric I had was too 'white' so I got out the Parisian Essence to create the prim look.............maybe they look like they were starting to melt & spilt their coffee on themselves!
You can see I didn't quilt stars on their tummies, as shown on the pattern, instead I stitched old buttons & domes, even a rusty safety pin instead of the quilting..........makes them look more primitive.
As most of you know, as well as running my quilting business, I work part time at The Country Yard, sometimes I make samples for the shop, some of these samples are Block of the Months, remember last years BOM?

|Teehee.....see the Christmas stitchery still hanging!|
So with quilting, work , & a new BOM to work on, my Chateau Hexagon might have to go into resting. But here is where I'm at so far.
To finish off my post I will leave with a sweet little mouse, my friend Julie gifted me. I just haven't had the heart to put him away yet as he is just so darn cute! I guess when I finally put my tree away, he will get put away until this years Christmas.
