Sorry, no quilting today, I cleaned the mares' pen with the tractor before winter really sets in.   
Hopefully, come spring, I can get 4 posts set, so I can put up a gate in the pen.  Right now, I pull up 3 t-posts and remove the mesh to clean with the tractor, as it only has a couple 4' walk-thru gates for coming and going, nothing tractor size.

Sounds like you have been very productive outside.

Might be the last bit of productivity outside til spring.  We are only in the teens and 20s right now (Fahrenheit).  But, it's really nice not to have the big hump of manure and old hay in their pen, it really builds up around the feeder.

OMG that is freezing . I just googled it to convert to degrees Celsius. Thats -6 !!!

Surely you are not far off snow ?. You would have a lot of "Pre winter Preparation" I gather with Hay, fire wood etc ?

No fireplace, so no wood to chop.   Hay is all home (we raise cattle, so put up our own hay); hay is crap this year due to the drought, so will be supplementing the horses with alfalfa pellets (and some beet pulp) and the cows with protein cake (large pellets).   We've already had a skiff of snow, but not much moisture predicted for the near future.

4 table runners finished.   2 of the one on top (with gold triangles), 1 each of the other two.
Blue and yellow quilt finished, no idea what my camera did to the picture, but for now it'll do.

Beautiful!!  Thank you so much, especially for having the one ready for Katy before she deploys again, so I can bring when I go see her.  I really appreciate that!

They went more smoothly than I expected and I didn't have anything in line ahead of them.  All will ship together, and you can distribute as you wish, and they should get to you in plenty of time for you to take with.
Well, I have those rose print table toppers, but I'm almost done with those, so they could be ready for someone, if there is any interest for a Christmas gift.
 The blue and yellow quilt I just finished is lap size and available.

Darn it, I had a stack of blue Christmas print fabrics with plans to one day make a Christmas tree skirt, and now that I have an idea/plan, I can't find the blue fabrics.  I don't think I got rid of them, but boy if they are still here, I sure hid them well.  I did find a stack of other Christmas fabrics that I can give the plan a try with and see how it goes.

Trying the tree skirt pattern, real basic pattern.  One fabric is an odd ball, but I think it'll still be pretty when done.  I have 6 sections sewn together, tomorrow I'll press all those seams, then sew the sections together and hopefully have an even tree skirt top.  I'll need to figure out ties or something for the open edge, so that it can be held together, but still go around the tree.

Okay, I'm intrigued. I think you'll have 5 sold before you know it! I don't do a tree, since it's only me, and my mom doesn't do a tree, but I have 5 families that do trees with lots of grandchildren....so......

But next year is fine for those, since I've taken up so much of your time this year.

50" in diameter.   I'll let you know if I like the work enough to do more than a couple.  ;)

Tree skirt top finished, need to figure out a fabric for the backing and then quilt it and add ties or something to hold the open edge together to keep it around a tree.   
I could also fill the center with a circle of fabric, and this could be a table topper, but that has to be decided before I quilt.

Will there be a bound slit so it can be wrapped around a tree?  Or do they have to fit it on the trunk before setting it in the stand?

It's beautiful, by the way!!
