Christmas Idea and a Couple of Tops.

Here is a Christmas gift idea you can suggest for the buyer of gifts for a quilter. Here is a pendant that my DH and DD bought for me last Christmas. I just love it. They got it at a small shop in Historic Downtown Sonora named Stone Ground. Here is their site and they do a great Internet business.

I took my kids to my Moms this weekend. We have 3 days to ourselves. Have already been out to dinner 2 times. My DH is a fabulous cook and likes to but there is something about going out to dinner without correcting someones table manners or handing out quarters for the machines at the pizza parlour.

My Mom and I got to sew a little(Yes Dionne, It is nice to sew with my mom). I put together wonkylogs a tutorial from TallGrass Prarie Studio. I think I am going to make it bigger with another 8.

She finished up her triangle logs top. I offered to quilt it for her if I could hang it in my office for a while before I gave it back to her. I don't think it will take too long. I just have to do it.

Your necklace is beautiful! And so are your quilts, it sounds like a wonderful weekend!
(I'm glad you enjoy that special time with your mom!)

What a beautiful necklace. The colors on the wonky log quilt are great. The red really keeps the eye moving around the quilt. It looks like a fun pattern to try.

I liked your wonky LC so much I checked out Jacquie's tutorial, nice variation on an old old block.
