Christmas wallhanging

A while back a friend gave me the panel that appears in this wallhanging. I liked it so much, but just didn't quite know what to do with it. Then, what do you know! It is featured in a wallhanging in the current McCall's Quilting magazine. It's about 43 inches square. I like the way it turned out. Another plus is I could use our guild's 2009 challenge featured fabric for our winter project. The fabric is the white with silver. A friend calls the fabric the wet cat fur fabric!

Yesterday was a charity sew Saturday at a friend's house. It's fun to work on those projects at home, but it's a special treat to work on them with friends. We were told a while back that Project Linus often is lacking quilts for bigger boys, so I want to concentrate on that type of quilt for a while.

Our tree is up and the rest of the decorating is done. It feels good to have it finished. I still have nightgowns and pjs to sew, and I will get them done, but it's just not fun like quilting is. Oh, and then there's the house that needs cleaned. Too bad it doesn't stay clean for a while after cleaning.

Our dear DIL goes to the oncologist on Thursday to find out what the treatment will be for her breast cancer. We anticipate that chemo will start very soon. That will doubtless be a very hard time for her and her family. We are all so concerned.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your DIL and hope what the doctor has to say will be as good as can be. I buy the pink ribbon every October and have pinned them to the sun screen in my car. Every time I drive somewhere I try to remember to send some warm thoughts to all who are fighting this beast.

    I wish I had an opportunity to attend a machine quilting class, it looked like so much fun. I'm trying to practice some myself but can never hold the attention for long, maybe because it never looks like I envision it.

  2. Love the wallhanging! I am continue to pray for Tonya and family.

  3. I love the wallhanging, what a clever use of panels! I am sorry to hear about your DIL, I can understand how worrying it must be for your family. I hope it all turns out okay.
