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

Christmas Give-Away Quilt


OK, y'all.  It's done.  Well, except for the binding, it is.  As you can see, I finished this by machine quilting it...made that last minute decision today.  I really wanted to hand quilt this, but time's getting away from me, and I needed to get it finished up quickly.  (The reds in these pics appear a bit orange.  They aren't.  These are true candy-apple reds.)


I keep calling it a table topper, but, really, it will look great on the wall or on a table, either one.

Drawing for this will be on Thanksgiving Day.  So, leave a comment if you'd like me to enter you!

Coming up in future posts:  a candy recipe, a cake recipe, a cookie recipe, and my new favorite breakfast.  So, come on back soon.

Laura, you don't "know" the St. Clairs - you're related to them! :) Thanks for the precious encouragement. I have always noticed Abby's desperate pride in and fierce love for her sisters and it's truly comforting as we approach adopting. Thanks! Stay tuned! :) lots of love in him~ Esty

Don't know if I am eligible or not, but if so, toss my name in the hat. If not, I certainly understand. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving weekend in NC.
