With a little help from my friends

It's been a quiet week here in... where am I again?

I've been busily working away at my little quilt for the holiday edition of the Four Seasons Quilt Swap, and it's now done. It started out with a little bargello; then I decided that it needed a few "crop circles" (thanks Poppyprint!); then it needed some shiny ribbon around the circles to turn them into ornaments. Finally, it was quilted with a freehand holly design lifted from Leah's 365 days of patterns. What would we do without all the talented and generous quilters out there in blogland?
I have a couple of other things that will be ready to show later this week, I hope.

I'll just leave you with the Buckster. I pulled out a stack of small batting pieces the other day to find one for the holiday quilt. That cat has batting radar, I swear -- as soon as I walked away, he took possession and has barely left it since. I guess the top piece will have to become my next quilting practice piece...

Nice new look for your blog! Those swimming fish must be driving your cat crazy, tho! ;)
What a nice holiday bargello. And I agree -- all those helpful ideas from fellow bloggers are so wonderful!
