Doily, CQ Quilting and Advent Calendar

Round 4 and 5 of Renulek's Doily. This will take some time going all the way around. I followed Muskaan's blog and tatted all the daises  and connect them as I tat Round 4. She has lots of good tips on this doily, Thank U Muskaan. 

I have hand quilted this section and down the one side.  Below is the pattern I will quilt in.

The start of the Nativity Advent Calendar for my great nephew. My niece asked if I would make one. It took a few tries to get the right numbers on 2 1/2 inch squares. I thought about tatting, crossstitch, backstitch and the chain stitch is what looked the best and easiest.
I have knitted the sock down to the start of the heal and have been hooken the rug around the border.
We had a lot of rain with small hail but no tornadoes this week. Friday had to go to Amarillo, TX , dh has blocked artery. During all the testing a storm was raging outside with a tornado watch, just hoping it wouldn't hail and one set down. Thankfully most of the bad hail storm was South of the city.
Looking forward to seeing all the beautiful projects people are working on at Kathy's Quilts. Please stop by and see them at
