check; check; check!

 20 pounds of meat, and three batches of pastry and a lot of work yielded this (12 meat pies 10" or larger)

and then I had to make butter tarts. Mom always made butter tarts for Christmas, and I have been doing what Mom does for so many years that tired or not; we needed butter tarts. 

Just a small batch for Mr O. and I. 
I made 3 dozen butter tarts and a half dozen strawberry rhubarb ones.

Quality control tells me the pies are great! I didn't hear any feedback on the tarts but I noticed that the plate I served up came back empty, so I am guessing they were ok too. 

Binding is sewn onto the quilt and all that is left is to hand stitch it down and gift wrap it. A good movie on Netflix will help the time pass quickly while stitching.

And to have quilted the denim quilt, amazing!
