Wedding Hanky

Well I finally finished the wedding hanky for my d-i-l to be. I will presenting it to the bride, tomorrow, her wedding day.

I embroidered this card and then you slip the hanky in.

Inside it has the poem. I also put in a copy of the instructions on making it into a bonnet when the time comes.

AZ, Parties & Red Bell

Well we went down to AZ and visited my folks & grandmother. We had a wonderful time, except for my back kept me from doing much. Got a little sun burn. Delays getting home, do to Denver weather. Arrived in the middle of the night to 14 degrees and a frozen car.

Since we have been home it has been party and work and rest. Still had some customer quilts to finish, but can only stand for so long before I have to rest my back.

Last week I had a quilt guild Christmas party. We had lots of wonderful food and fun. We also exchanged our friendship blocks. Only 17 of us participated. We had to make 17 blocks. I chose to make a Christmas Stocking and I embroidered their name on the cuff. Here are pictures of our blocks.

Saturday was up to Spokane for wedding prep with my d-i-l to be. Then back home to clean up and dress for my husband's company Christmas party.

Sunday I had a Christmas brunch to go to with the quilt shop I work part time for. We did a gift exchange. I tatted another bell for the employee whos name I had been given. I did this one with red thread and red and white beads.
