Back to work and somes finishes

Worked a bit longer last evening than I normally do but I did get some projects finished before heading out to work today.
My "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" is now Diamond Tree Skirt... as much as it was stressful to cut it, I now look forward to spreading it out next Christmas at the bottom of my tree.

Next......Ta DA!
My "Birchwoodlane House" by Suzanne McNeil from her book is all done... and I would put in my "favorites" category.
Every project I have made with a Holly Taylor lines go to the top of the list.

The house with a little appliqué ....

And of course Agnes' superb hand quilting which she demonstrated with the hearts she quilted in the border to match the heart on the house.
