It's Almost Here!

Well, the day is almost here and as usual I am not ready.

I finished some last minute sewing this weekend.
A Christmas dress for Lillian  and one more stocking.











Remember this quilt from this post?  It  was a Christmas present for my son-in-law last year.  I don't know why I put off repairing it for so long.  It wasn't hard to do I just sewed a new inner border strip over the torn one and put on a new binding.  The most difficult part was remembering to buy some black fabric.
It is happily back home.

Now to the sorting, wrapping and finding out what I forgot.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and don't forget to check back on the 24th to find out the winner of the Christmas blog hop.
Happy Stitching,
Nancy

What a clever way to repair the quilt without having to take it apart! Cute little dress, too!
