We've been working away....

We've had a couple of sewing days with my Twisted Sisters since I blogged last.  Here are some pictures.

 Here's one sister getting a start on Christmas quilting.  She's making a Twister Christmas Wreath for all her real sisters.
Below she's sewing the rows together and it's looking pretty darn nice.  (Wonder if she'd like to adopt me to be her sister?)

I couldn't resist making this cute little cushion.  It's a pattern by The Quilt Company and is as cute as can be.  I loved doing the embroidered branches on my sewing machine using Sulky 12wt thread.  It did a great job!  After making this one, had to start another and I'll post pictures of it very soon.  I'm taking pictures while making it so you can see the construction.  I've done it more like Winter Trees instead of following the pattern.  Both are adorable - wait and see!

Poor Duncan, he was so tired after listening to our sewing machines going all day, he just had to put his head down for a nap.

That's all for now.  Time for bed so I can be refreshed to work on my cushion tomorrow.
