Downey Quilts for Kids Done, Christmas Napkins and a Santa Applique (and a Giveaway!)

I quilted this little quilt on my new Viking Husquavarna Diamond machine! I need to post you pictures and talk about that soon, but it did a great job on this little quilt for Downey Quilts for Kids Project. The lable is blury, but I got it on there and hand sewed on the binding last night. I even washed it as they requested and it is all ready to go back to some deserving little boy!
At camp I started these little Christmas Tree napkins and finished them up at home where I had red and green thread! They look like trees, but when you open them up they are a napkin for Christmas time. Really fast, easy and cute. I will be making up some more of these.
At the last Make it and Take it we worked on these Santa Appliques. I had to do most of the applique at home but now he awaits quilting and eyes and binding and he will be all set! The teacher and a friend of hers made up the pattern. It is a bit fiddly to me (applique I am not so good with) but it really is adorable when done!


This is my 300th post and is time for a giveaway! I will put together some goodies (including fabric) to mail out to a commenter posts here who has already posted a comment to me somewhere in the last 300 posts! I want to reward my commenters, not find a zillion new commenters I guess. So tell me why you read my blog, or what you like about it in a comment to this post, and on Wednesday I will randomly draw one of you for the giveaway. If you have never commented go ahead and you are in for when I do another giveaway down the line! Smile ;)
Well, I am off to my friend June's to do some sewing and gabbing. I love my sewing friends!

Some little boy will be delighted.

I love that Santa , too cute! I read your blog to see what you are up to, of course. Are you in town next weekend btw? I am having a sewing day.

I read your blog because it is like sitting down with you over a cuppa having a gossip about craft and life in general. I also love to see what you are making....
