Christmas Lights is quilted and headed home!

As you all know a couple weeks ago I found a steal of a deal on longarm quilting but the catch was that you had to have it to her in just 7 days. Well lucky for me all I had left to do was the boarders on my beautiful Christmas Lights Mystery Quilt.

Mrs. Margaret has been so great keeping me updated on the status of my quilt since she received it and notified me earlier this week that it's making it's way back home to me! I'm not sure when exactly it will arrive but I'm hoping either tomorrow or Monday? She did give me the USPS tracking number and I checked it but it appears that recently all they do is show the date it was accepted and then never again update it :/ What's up with that?

She did share with me 2 close up photos for me to see while I wait.... and I can tell that I'm in love already! Funny thing is I went to show my husband last night and the page would not come up while I was clicking on the link - I tried 4 times while David stood over my shoulder... but nope. No pic, nothing. Timed out.

Then he left the room and the page came up and I could see it - so I guess that is a sign that he's not meant to see it until he opens up his package at Christmas this year!

I asked Mrs. Margaret if I could copy and share them here on my blog - and I don't think she will mind, but I haven't heard back yet... so stay tuned. ;)

Love from Texas!


  1. Hello there Bonnie (?) I think that is your name :).

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I did indeed like the Supreme Slider! I so want to quilt my own quilts or at the least smaller projects, go from A to Z. There was no friction and I used some rubber tipped gloves and I had no major problems....practice, practice, practice :) but I also don't want to ruin nice projects.

    I am eager to check out your blog. That Christmas quilts is BEAUTIFUL! I will check back to see the quilted result!
