Cross Stitch Quilt

I went to the local quilting bee at the senior citizens center, unfortunately I got a phone call and was not able to stay.  A friend needed a ride to the chiropractor.  However, I did get a picture of this great quilt!
She said it came in a kit and the pictures were printed on the quilt and she just did counted cross stitch on it.  I've tried to do cross stitch before, but have never finished anything!  This entire quilt is done strictly by hand!  Didn't she do a great job?
We went to some thrift stores in Forsyth today.  I bought a small box of sewing machine attachments which had a shuttle and bobbin in it, for $4!  I also got this very unique pin cushion for $2!  I took a picture of it by my hand so you can get an idea of the size.
Colette from What About Rheema? sent me four more blocks today!  Thank you very much!
The thing about my sewing room is that this is a temporary rental and I am not painting or buying curtains or anything for it.  I am also not unpacking all of my fabric and everything else.  I piled all the boxes up in a little alcove in the sun room which is my sewing room.  The cats love it in the afternoon when the sun is out and shining in there, since I threw a quilt over the boxes, they think it is their bed!
You can tell the walls aren't great and the cats knocked down the curtain, but they sure love that sun!
Squeeky has her own spot to sleep in there.
I got that apron last week.  My friends kidnapped me for a late 40th birthday weekend (they had to wait for me to move here!)  We went to Springfield and went thrift store shopping and to see the play "Romeo and Juliet".  I also bought a new hat!  It was a blast!
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  I am thankful for good friends!

It is a beautiful quilt! I love your sewing room, so full of light. I can see why the cats like to hang out there.
