Just in the nick of time.
Old St. Nick is finished - piecing and applique done in California, quilting and binding done in Massachusetts. It was pulled fresh from the dryer, all crinkly and warm, ready to snuggle under on the couch just as the first real winter storm arrives tonight.
And when that storm arrives, I'll be winging my way back to California. A week of fun in the sun and parties with quilting pals. Hopefully Hubby and Harper will build a snowman in the yard to greet me on my return.
See you next week!

I love that quilt! Is it a pattern or did you design it? Are you coming out this week because they are predicting liquid sunshine but I am not holding my breath!

This quilt is beautiful, and I love the one on your banner. I hope you have a wonderful time out here in California. It's been nice all week, but it's turned cool this morning. Of course, we're at 3000 ft. elevation, so it might be warmer where you're going :-)
Blessings,
Marcia
