Unfinished list getting smaller?

Today I took pictures of some finished projects.

Some mini jars from Miniatures quilts I started, 5 done and 10 to go. They are so cute!

This is a pattern from Lakadaisies. See, Hear, and Speak No Evil Redwork. This one is for a friend, Jan Ermel. She is Common Threads Quilt Guild president. Her husband passed away recently. I'll give it to her next week. She is at quilt camp this week.

This is a Blue Star Banner for my sister and her husband. They have two nephews in the war.

This is a See, Hear, and Speak No Evil done in Pinkwork. This one I made to go in our shabby chic bedroom.
I have made many wallhangings from this pattern for family and friends. I think twelve or thirteen so far.

This is a Bug Jar Quilt, pattern by Carol Hopkins. This one is called "Happy Bugs". It is for Ashlyn Taylor. Harry and Tammy Taylors youngest of three. It's a little late but I just finished the binding and label last night. I hope that she likes it. Ruthie quilted it at Ruthie's Quilting. It is a wonderful pattern. I have made eight quilts with this pattern.

This a doily that I purchased in Santa Clara, CA at an antique mall. I sewed it onto a gold cotton and had it custom framed at Hobby Lobby.The frame is a beautiful gold ceramic and the mat is a red silk. It turned out perfect. The picture doesn't do it justice. I had it framed in remembrance of the last time that Randy and I took a vacation to San Francisco, CA before my sweet grandma, Tillie passed away. It was two years ago that she passed on March 6th, 2007.
My DH will be home tommorow evening until Sunday morning. I can't wait to see him. It's been a month. We have missed each other so much since he took this job. Hopefully weather won't be a factor this time while he's travelling from Maryland. The last time he tried to come home the flights were cancelled because of bad weather.
