Miscellaneous Monday

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving
and are easing into the Christmas Holiday season.
We had a houseful of family for several days
and enjoyed every minute of being together.

During the fun and crazy few days,
I did manage to get a little sewing done.

The top of the Table Runner for my daughter and son-in-law
is finished... it just needs to be quilted.

This runner is HUGE.
The table my son-in-law made is huge as well.
It can easily fit 12 people, if not 14.
They love to entertain,
so this will brighten their table at Christmas time.

My daughter picked this fabric out and asked that I make her a runner.
She LOVES Charlie Brown and the gang.
The backing is made, so the quilting will be done this week.

 The Tie quilt for a dear friend is coming along nicely.
There are 7 more blocks to be made
and then they will be rearranged to distribute the colors better.


 I'm hoping to have this one sewn together in the next couple of weeks.
Then  the decision of how to quilt it will be made.
Any suggestions?

And lastly, work on the annual ornaments for the ornament exchange with
my sister and her family continues.

I saw this pattern for these three ornaments years ago
and have wanted to make them.

They are finished except for the hanging cords.

I am linking to Design Wall Monday today.
Happy Monday, All!

And Happy Creating!



  1. Looks like you got all kinds of things accomplished! What fun. you are having.

  2. The table runner is wonderful and happy. Your tie quilt is just marvelous! It will be such a treasure.
    Love the ornaments.

  3. Goodness, all of your projects are so different and I love them all! Especially the tie quilt -- the most stunning memory quilt I've seen.

  4. The Peanuts runner turned out so cute. They will love it. The tie blocks are looking fabulous too. Will you finish it with batting and backing? Those felt ornaments are adorable.

  5. Love the Peanuts runner--I still read that comic in my daily newspaper! What a wonderful long table it is for.

    How lovely the tie blocks look, you could quilt almost anything over them, an easy all over pattern.

    Cute ornaments.

  6. Did you do the tie blocks on some kind of stabilizer? Do the blocks contain any cotton or only ties? Thank you for the information.

  7. The tablerunner is great and great progress on the tie blocks. It almost seems like an allover not dense quilting design might be best. That's a toughie! I love Charlie Brown! We watch all the Charlie Brown holiday movies at school for literary elements on the appropriate holiday. I haven't touched my quilting since my last batch of machine quilting except for a tiny bit of binding. Kids and grandkids were here and there were 32 here for dinner counting us Thursday. I am ready to get back at it!

  8. The ornaments are adorable! You are really trucking along with the tie quilt, bet you are very anxious to finish it though!
