Circle Quilt Top, and Giveaway Winner!

Hi everyone! Thanks to all who stopped by to enter my giveaway this past week. I really enjoyed reading about the projects you made this year. The winner, picked by, is #161, Nancy Sue, who said,

"I crocheted a baby afghan for my newborn nephew in 2 days this past summer. I took yarn and a hook with me on a camping trip. Between 8+ hours in the car and time around a campfire and porch, I finished it. I could then enjoy the rest of the week camping without that deadline hanging over my head :)"

That's amazing to me, I have always been quite slow when I crochet.
I've emailed Nancy Sue and will be sending her the mini-quilt in a few days.

I also finished up this not-mini quilt top yesterday, I'm excited to show you:
circle quilt top, finished 
This is our back fence; the quilt has one more row of quarter-circles (half circles, I guess) hanging over the top of the fence. The quilt measures 60" x 80". This was fun to put together and it didn't take me too long. It will be a little while before I'm ready to quilt it but I have something fun in mind for the quilting.

My boys are out of school for winter break now, so we'll be trying to do some fun activities over the next couple weeks, and I'm going to work on fitting some sewing in as well. I hope you're having a good holiday season!
