Never not Quilting (or knitting)

I am always working away at one project or another, but at this time of the  year, there are more than I few I can't share yet!

I bought some fun cotton/linen fabrics while I was at Knit City last month, and got to making up these knitting project bags. Already filled with "me" projects for when my Christmas projects are all completed. 

I better pick up the pace if I plan to finish this project in my lifetime. Five blocks a year isn't going to work!

I picked up more Tula Pink on my summer vacation. Pillow top kit from Expressions in Fibre in Sechelt BC

There was enough to make two pillow tops, plus I bought a green/blue TP FQ bundle and more of that yummy BG fabic to make a few more. 

I made up some receiving blankets and a raggy quilt for our newest tiny Syrian/Canadian babe

And my Weasley jumpers on the library tree!

The tree won Best Theme Tree and was live auctioned at the Gala on Saturday night, but I haven't heard yet what is was sold for or who now owns it.

Eight is Enough

I finally finished eight tiny Weasley sweaters for the library to hang on their Harry Potter themed tree at the Festival of Trees in a few weeks. I wanted to do a few more but in the end eight was enough.

Our guild hung the annual show in the art gallery at the library last week and once again it looks wonderful. The following two shots are of our Boreal forest themed project. At the end of the month all these wall hangings will be donated and hang in the library's children's area. 

This Stellar Jay was made by Sarah from a photograph and it is totally amazing! The wings and tail are 3D.

I am so totally pleased to have my Hex-a-thon quilt finally finished and quilted so beautifully by Carole. I am pretty proud of all that hand piecing. 

My Oh Canada top is all pieced and I cannot wait to see it quilted in the New Year. It started out as one of my UFO challenges and quickly became a full sized quilt. It is totally from scraps and my stash, but amazingly enough, my scrap bins did not appear any emptier!

I can't wait to start celebrating Canada's 150th birthday next year!
