Snow Days

I love to see pictures of quilts in the snow,
so,
I went out this afternoon and took pictures of my projects.
I had a couple of snow days this week,
thus there was snow out there.


This is the 2nd one I have made like this.
One for each set of grand kids.

I put the border on this one.
To be honest,
I wasn't sure I liked it, 
but it looks great in the snow.


I can't lie;
it was cold out there.
I froze my fingers off.
Probably should have worn the gloves that were in my pocket.

Happy Snow Sew Days

I missed you

I have had a couple of crazy weeks this holiday season.
I am grateful that my family has come home.
We have had time to eat, play games, visit, and go on some adventures.

But I have missed sewing.
Yesterday, after I finished the last load of laundry,
I realized that I had time to sew.

To my surprise, the fabric I had ordered for the border of my quilt had come.
I can't even begin to describe how cold it was.
We've had some bad weather.

But I really wanted to to finish this project.


I only had one block completed.
I really wanted to finish them.

#1  They are kinda tricky

#2  I was having some trouble picking out fabrics

#3 I just wanted to finish this project.

So I went to work.
I have 3 left.
Make that 4, I have one that needs to be picked out 
and done again.
It's ugly.

I'm ready to get back to work,
and quilting.

I have a new grand daughter coming in March and I have a great idea for a quilt.

Let the new year begin!

Gifts


I only had one quilt that needed to be finished for a Christmas gift.
I made it this summer and for whatever reason,
I thought I would be able to put it together without any issues.

Really the only issue was my attitude.

But I got it put together.


I'm not a huge fan of the T-shirt quilt,
but I do love the way I used some T-shirts for squares in this quilt.


Hope your Christmas Sewing is working for you.

December

Here we go.
We are starting the last month of the year.

I always find it interesting that the last month goes so fast
while the first month of the new year goes so slow.

We have been busy.
I haven't sewn since the craft show.

I need to get a quilt quilted for Christmas,
so I hope to get it done soon.

More Craft Show



I made these aprons for the craft show.



They were quick and cute.



I'm hoping, being the weekend before Thanksgiving,
they will sell.
If not, I will use them as gifts.

Maybe I should have Wes wear one.
I think he can sell it.

Craft Show

I have a confession to make.
I really don't like craft shows.

But I also have a problem.
I have acquired a few sewing machines this year.
Not to mention a sewing machine cabinet

.

I need to clean out my basement before the kids come home for the holidays.

So I decided to do a craft show at the local Senior Center.


This means I have to sew everyday.

I have been so busy.
But if you have to be busy, 
you might as well be sewing.

This week:  Bags....there are more to come.



Mug Rugs
I do love a  mug rug.

Happy Fall


I love this time of year.
The trees are so pretty.

Even my sewing has changed direction.

Happy Fall!
