Happy Valentines and Merry Christmas!

Hey Mooz!

Really enjoyed your last bost! and thanks for showing off the heart I made your for Christmas. That was my first, and I can't wait to make more. It was a really fun project.

Being Valentines Day, I thought now would be the perfect time for a Christmas themed blog post! Featuring your recently finished Christmas '09 quilt!

Here's a nice shot of the fabrics used and the zig-zag quilting. I know it was an accident, but it came out really well!  
And here is Iroh enjoying the warm lap while Mooser finishes binding. Also, there's a glimpse at the backing. I love Christmas plaids.
Finally, The lovely Christmas quilt draped casually over our arm chair. Wonderfully cozy!
I was very impressed at how quickly it took you to put it all together (for the most part). You'll have to post some more pictures of the finished product some other time.
As for my own projects, I still have too many things started and not enough time. I've bought a total of 7 lbs of yarn for Hawk's blanket. You'd think that it'd be the most massive blanket in the world, but it's all because I keep buying the wrong wool. So I'll have plenty for future projects, I guess!
Another exciting purchase I've made: some more red yarn to replace the skein that my cats puked on! Any tips on getting cat barf out of yarn without ruining it? Gross. It was my favorite red yarn, the same stuff that was used to make my sweater and the left atrium of your heart!
