I got this quilt top done, and was hoping it would be a finished quilt by now, but I got distracted by some other projects. I am planning to hand quilt it, it's not too big, about 40"x 56". I have it all quilted around the "Noel", and I did keep going, but will need to take a bunch of the quilting out, as it is rather bunched up. I used Hobbs Heirloom fusible batting, and at first I thought it was working great. That was until it came loose. I will need to try and fuse it again, and/or baste it, I suppose.
I had a meeting a couple of weeks ago, and the group of us did a Christmas sock exchange. Maybe you've seen the idea out there, if not, you can Google it. Lots of ideas for a game to play and exchange the socks. Kind of like "dirty Bingo" that we played years ago to exchange white elephant gifts. Anyhow, I found Frosty the Snowman socks online at Target. I added my dollar store purchases. Second photo is Bumpkin, letting me know that my loot passes inspection.
In fact, so many that my finger tips are sore from hand stitching binding....I tend to poke myself with the needle a lot!
I did buy the pattern for the red truck. It was so cute, I couldn't resist!
I got it on Etsy... it was a PDF instant download. I got it here.
I also made a few bibs......
Top Rudolph and bottom snowman are for my granddaughter. The middle 2 I gave to a friend for her 2 grandsons. They were so fun to make. I found a free toddler bib pattern online. The other pattern I already had, and I have used a lot. This time I made my own bias binding......... (ooohhh fancy!)

Ok, I think that is it for now! I will be babysitting my granddaughter today. She will be 2 next month. I am looking forward to a fun day!
