Let the Christmas RUSH begin!
I had left these scrappy tile blocks at my house to work on on weekends only, but they are so darn fun... I had to bring a couple in to work on this week in the city.
I had planned this quilt to be a giant 9 patch... But am thinking it might be fun to make it into a bed quilt... or perhaps I just need to make another!
In my attempt to clean, I realized I need to get some of these projects finished... I like this method, because then I get excited again and I start whipping out these projects that have been lingering... I didn't want to wait til NEXT Xmas to finish my Xmas Log cabin quilt, especially when I only needed two more blocks... So I zipped them up and have all the extra bits in a box that I want to use up in the border...
So far I have this done, But I am thinking since i have MORE scraps left in the box, I may add even another row around this... It's so close to bed size, that I figure I might as well keep going...
I pieced 3 more blocks for my ON POINT quilt, and got the yellow squares sewn together for my dresdens... I figure I can take the hand sewing dresdens to my house over Xmas break to work on... That will be fun to look forward to January to finish.... three more blocks to go...
Did you see Jackie's little mini quilt using this block?
click here, it's so cute.
oh, and see Kathie's fab use of scraps...
AND, go see these little houses at twiddletails,then make your own!
I started today cleaning, and found this stack of Home decor weight Denise Schmdit fabrics, and figure I better not forget the doggies for Xmas
I had made two Amy butler poufs a while ago, For B, which she loves, but we find that the dogs keep stealing them...
So i made this one for them, and will fill it with all the foam peanuts I have saved for packing... It works great for filling bean bags... This will also save me $30 in stuffing just to fill these things!
WHY IS MY COMPUTER UNDERLINING EVERYTHING............
A lot right? I know. I have family coming Thursday and it always gets me in a good frenzy. I work well under pressure... pressure meaning,
to clean my studio and rid the POOL TABLE (aka:great work space)
of the Santa's Shipping and Packaging area...
I guess I should get a shower in today too...
Better run. (faster!)
oh! And thanks for all your nice comments yesterday!
I had meant for it to be a nice NYC post, but my haircut sort of took over!
