What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

Top 'O The Morning!


Here is the completed top for my Christmas give-away quilt,  "Only In My Dreams..."  I've been cogitating for several days now about how I'm going to quilt this little confection.  I had thought I'd do it by machine so I could be finished with it lickity-split.  But now I've decided I'm going to hand quilt it, to retain the home-spun feel.  So that means I'll be working on it a few more days.

Oh, and by the way, the names for the snowman and birdy are flowing in now, thanks to a little bribery.  And they are good!   Hey, I'm not above bribing the names out of you.  Whatever it takes!  


As always, if you would like to have this hanging on your wall this Christmas, just leave me a comment, fire me off an email, or give me a holla on Facebook.  (Tell me what we should name the two characters and I'll throw your name in the hat twice!)  I'll be drawing for this on Thanksgiving.

I'm thinking Bing for the snowman (in honor of Mr. Crosby and the song) and Ralphie (another Christmas classic) for the bird :)
