LTRTCWSA - 12/18/12

Another episode of -

Leisurely Turtle Race to Christmas with Squirrels Allowed - ;))


I’m still working on the Folk Art Christmas Tree
Folk Art Christmas - by Cindy Taylor Oates - (c) Taylor Made Designs -


Well I got it fused before Christmas - ;))

I still need to stitch it all down -

But I figured that I could stitch it and the Gingerbread 'n Hearts -

With the same colors -

And not have to change thread as often - ;))

I just have to decide which sewing machine to use -

My Husqvarna/Lily does a great buttonhole/applique stitch -
I used her on the Floral Applique quilt -

SuzieQ - I’m not sure yet -
I need to do some test stitches -
She has several available -

Or not even bother and just switch her out for Lily -

Either way I can applique them at the same time -

Then add borders - backing - etc. -

At least - that’s the plan - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

This post was written and scheduled to go "live" today - before I learned that Linda - my bloggy buddy/friend and "Racing" partner had to have surgery recently and will be sidelined for awhile. I have decided to post my progress as scheduled - and because she's run into this little roadblock - We have declared a TIE in our First Annual Leisurely Turtle Race To Christmas With Squirrels Allowed. - ;))


  1. They are both so cute. I love the tree!!!

    1. Thanks - I love the tree, too!! I don't know why I waited so long to make it - I think that I was hoping for some softer fusible stuff to come on the market - but as it turns out - I used the stuff she included with the pattern. I figured she knew what she was doing and the stiffer stuff is better for a wallhanging anyway - ;))

  2. Looking good! The tree is amazing but I love the gingerbread piece too.


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
