Heading Home and a Christmas Freebie

Home again , home again jiggety jig! 


Welcome y'all. Mr. Pinker and I are truckin' on down  the road making our way back home from our camping trip. 

As soon as I get back home and unpack , I am going to snatch up my Summer Days quilt and go to town quilting the borders. 
Summer Days quilt top. All of these designs were shared in 2022 as freebies. 
 
I will be using the Baptist Fan quilting design along the borders, and hopefully, in a few short hours the quilting will be completed. 



The quilting on the  top border is complete. 



Not only is it Slow Stitching Sunday, but it is Santa Sunday as well.  I will be working on a Santa stitch this evening, but in the meantime, I have a new stitch to share with you. 


Santa Is On His Way!  It is just a little prim quick stitch. 

Santa is On His Way  uses  some of the same floss colors as Old World Santa and Tree Delivery .  

There are 9 colors in this piece which include : 221, 223, 730, 782, 869, 407, 898, Blanc, and 3371

Santa Is On His Way and The Holiday Tree
