I have a few pictures of what I have been working on over the past month or I have done several other things, including a baby quilt and some Christmas projects, but this has taken most of my time.  It is a commission quilt for a friend - who is giving it to her Dad for Christmas.  It's at the quilters now and should be done today!  I love the colors of the top and I'm soooo please with how all the seams matched Irish Chain isn't has easy as it looks.

The request for something with doves, lighthouses and representing Ireland was the challenge for this quilt.  Yet, I think I was able to pull it together.

My friend is quilting it for me and she is doing it simple with some doves in the stippling.  I hope to get better close ups when it's finished.  I have a new camera.......but it's wrapped and under the tree, hubby won't let me have it before Christmas....the turkey :)

I need to get back into blogging, I'm missing all my online friends so much.
