Dear Santa (FNSI results)

I spent a wonderful two hours quilting away last night and finished my wall hanging for Santa.  (I need to get the binding on this week.)   I found this pattern at Sew Happy Me - look in the side bar for free tutorials. 

 I started the stitching quilt along on her blog and found how much I like doing this - now I am on the lookout for small quilt projects where I can incorporate stitching.  This wall hanging is roughly 13 by 22.

I also made great progress on the first of 5 stockings I want to make.  This one is for my husband.  (Still needs to be assembled and then lined.)

About this point in the night, the real 'fun' stuff was done but I was determined to keep going.  I've got stars to make for one of my larger holiday quilts.  I made some progress but then.... couldn't find some fabric I was certain I had.  After about 15 mins of looking, I called it a night.   Hope you enjoyed your evening!

I entered my Gobble, Gobble mini quilt in Quilting Gallery's weekly contest.  Please go take a peek and vote for 2 of your favorites.  My turkey would appreciate your vote. (There are a couple of amazing ones there so I am running for runner up!)

Happy Stitching!
