Trimmed trees.....

The trees are trimmed!  Yup, I finished the top just a few minutes ago.  This is a picture Sharon took at the beginning of the month at the Just Takes 2 group.  Turns out, she has the fabric and the pattern to make this!  Sew.....I told her she should quilt it for me, so she can *practice* on mine so she'll know how she wants to quilt hers!  I am thrilled to have it to this point.  Tomorrow, I will take it to the shop with me and look for a backing and, since I started it about 4 years ago, I need to find some binding for it.  The pattern shows red, and I think that would look good.  But I probably need to obsess over it a bit before hastily jumping into anything  =)  Since Nikki is coming for the Falling Leaves quilt sometime this week, I'll probably put the trees up in its place until its their turn under the longarm!

What a busy day it was today!  We had lots of customers; some folks renting the Accuquilt; and Jan and I were finishing machine sewing the binding on the last two advent calendar samples ~ my next *sit in the chair and hand sew* projects.  Plus, we HAD to think about starting something new too, so that required auditioning quite a few dozen fabrics!  There were lots of zippers to put away in the freight....just in time 'cuz a few people came in needing a replacement ~ the cold, wet, blustery weather makes us want to get those jackets closing up properly!  Hope your week is a good one so far.
