I finished this Christmas quilt for my Mom. She received it on Tuesday and was thrilled with it. She said the smiling Santas put her in a "Christmasy" mood! It was a great feeling of accomplishment. This was the second quilt I quilted myself on the long arm quilting machine.

First Post


I have fallen in love with the Australian designers and just started following their blogs, so I decided to create one of my own. I'm not a designer, but I love to look at and stitch (needlework and quilt) the designs I have found. The new Among the Gum Trees blog is very exciting to me and I look forward to seeing what this group of designers is doing in the following months.

The picture was taken in Saguaro National Park just outside of Tucson were I live. This is at the start of one of my favorite trails to hike in the spring.
