Finishes and Almost Finishes

Almost done quilting the t-shirt quilt.   Just have the tie blocks to get finished tonite.  Would have done that last night, but supper didn't agree with me and I ended up going to bed early instead of sewing.  =(  Still need quite a bit of quilting over the tie sections so that they don't pull out when it is used.  Will have this finished this week, would love to have it back in the mail Friday but don't know if I can pull that off or not.

Next pic is of a little cross stitch piece I made while in Phoenix at Thanksgiving.   It will end up either in a quilted postcard or a mug rug.

Next three pics are of completed Christmas gifts.  Have two sets of snack mats and tea cozies finished up and an appliqued sweatshirt.

Sweatshirt here will go to DH of my GF.

Tea cozy and snack mat for one of my best friends.

Tea cozy and snack mat for her oldest daughter, one of my adopted nieces.

Still need one more snack mat/tea cozy set.   Pic of fabrics and completed mat that I'm thinking of is at the very bottom.   Both the fabric and the mat work for my niece, but I'm not sold on them all together.   At this point I may be either making a new snack mat, or finding fabric that goes better with it......can't decide.   What do you think of the combo?

1.  I'm not up in the upper Midwest with all of the winter weather and snow!

2. Christmas gifts are almost done - before Christmas!

Love the snack mat--mug rug is what I call them. I want to make for friends.
Snow is beautiful and more so when you don't have to go out!!
Hope you feel better.
