 I finished Matthew's Maze with about 2 hours to spare before he drove home. It now resides with my son in Pennsylvania.
 My daughter who is all of 5'4" is holding it up for me to take a picture.
 This is the label of the wonderful women who did all of the machine quilting.
 Here are some closeups of that beautiful quilting

I am glad that Matthew's Maze is finally finished. Now I must start planning my daughter's quilt.

The weekend prior to Thanksgiving I finished some stitching on Baker Beach and sorted through which flosses I wanted to work with next. I put these flosses in the box you see below in the partition with my scissors on the left. 
The phone rang, I got up and knocked the entire box onto the floor. Floss scattered everywhere. Once my phone call ended, I just put all the floss back in number order, but I didn't go back and sort the floss to use next again.
Yesterday, I finally got back to stitching on Baker Beach and I looked at the chart and just decided that I wanted to stitch some blue. 
I know that this is not a floss that I had originially planned to use next, because I was trying not to leave too much un-stitched fabric in between colors. It made me happy to stitch this color though especially as it seemed to move me that much closer to the bottom. I have now chosen a floss that will fill in some of that open white space and I will be more careful getting up when my floss box is open.

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching today. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I think Baker Beach needs a little more love in between Christmas decorating. 

Thanks for stopping by!
