December 11 and 61 degrees and Sewing with Black Thread

As the title of this post says, it is December 11 and 61 degrees this afternoon. Very unusual for December, don't you agree?

Often, on this the day before my sister's birthday, we are running around in heavy coats doing our Christmas shopping and squeezing in a birthday gift for her and my hubby (whose birthday comes at the end of the month).  Sometimes even dodging snow! But not this year!  I am enjoying it while it lasts because we all know that suddenly it will be cold and snowy and 61 degrees will be a fond memory.

Now on to the sewing projects...

There was black in the bobbin, so of course, black projects needed to be sewn today.

Yes, there is a bit of red in honor of the season!

The finished top did not take too long since it was "webbed" in an earlier sewing session.

This next top is an oldie which rose to the top of the UFO stash in a recent reorganizing session.

Only the final borders needed to be applied.  So the two tops were finished today.

Bug bottles!  You remember this pattern, don't you?

I can't remember why I chose the blacks for this project. But it is now complete.  I am not going to second guess myself.  It is time to move this to the long arm quilter and get it to be a completely finished wall hanging.

And finally Carol's project..

A table runner destined to be a gift.  We used a decorative stitch which was found on Mary's Pfaff to complete the binding.  I love using this particular stitch.  It makes for a nice, quick binding finish.

Well that is all for today. The temperature is supposed to continue to be well above normal for this time of year.  Try to get outside and enjoy it while you can!
