Small finishes

I have been busy most of the week making toilet tank toppers and bowl cozies. I was making bowl cozies, I make them in batches of 8-10 but got to the last step and realized I had forgotten the darts, So they are not finished because I had to put them aside. My goal is to finish them this weekend. So here are my finishes.

A Fall Toilet Tank Topper.

A Fall set of place mats.

A Christmas Toilet ?Tank Topper. 

Have a great weekend and be sure to stop by my Etsy Shop for more of my finished items.

Alabama and Home

I am home! Yea. Even though I had a wonderful time I am happy to be home with my little Tebow.

It is hard to tell if he is happy to see me or not. LOL

The leaves were beautiful in the Alabama mountains despite the constant drizzle. 

Below is the view from my cozy room. 

Don't you just love this maple tree?

We did have one day that was sunny but cold and windy. I didn't stand in the cold to take pictures that day.

This is a lighted pathway across from the retreat center at the lodge. Can you see the cross to the right? I meant to get a daytime picture but forgot. Maybe I will remember when I return in February.

Just outside our worship room is a sitting area with a fireplace. This quilt hangs on the wall opposite the fireplace.

A close up of the free motion quilting.

And the back of the quilt.

I did not take quilting to work on this time, the lighting is bad for hand work, so I was really missing my quilting time. 

I really need to make more bowl cozies since my stock in my Etsy shop is low but I wanted to create something new.

 So I made two of these Toilet Tank Toppers/Mini Table Runners.

I still need to finish this table runner, sorry picture is washed out. It is much richer looking than this picture.

And I have two place mats for Fall that I am hand sewing the binding down.  These will give me hand work to do while taking a break from making bowl cozies.
