No, I didn't fall off the turnip truck

I really have been busy, so it isn't for want to something to say (do I ever have that challenge?) but just life is happening.  So, most of my time has been spent working on a little Christmas stitchery.  It is now ready for borders, but I cannot show you just yet as it will likely be a Christmas gift and one of my readers might just receive it.  So shhhhhhh!

Stashbusters (my smaller quilting group) each year makes a quilt to be raffled.  This is in lieu of paying rent for the space where we meet.  If you have read this blog for more than a year, you already know this - sorry.  Because we were out of the country I didn't make a block for the quilt, so am the official binder.  Here are 3 photos of part of the quilt.  It is all applique -but because some of us don't do much applique it is an interesting assortment of needle turn, freezer paper, turn and glue, etc. etc. as well as "steam a seam". 

The original pattern called for all tans and browns and we decided something distinctly wilder would be better.  The binding is bright orange.  Great fun.  More photos to follow.
