OK time to prepare dinner for the family before I go out for my gym class...
I have also finished quilting the little Christmas panel that I had bought earlier this month. I went for the all machine option by sewing the binding front and back by machine. I really like this panel it is so cute.
More on my other occupations later...
I also bought a lovely pattern from Brenda Walker to make some snowmen/women for the kids and just a little bit of fabric. I bought 2 unusual yarns to try and make a scarf but I am not sure when I will get around to do that.
Then at the week-end I decided to try and quilt the gingerbread panel and couldn't find my microstitch to tack. I had already lost my sewing scissors last week so I decided that enough was enough and started a big "spring cleaning/ reorganising" and I have been busy every evenings going through stuff and deciding how best to organise them. All my fabrics etc was stored in the wardrobe of what has now become Charlotte's room so I need to empty the wardrobe and store everything away in my sewing room. Big job but I am slowly, very slowly getting there. Anyway, the good thing is that I have found my scissors and my Microstitch again!
I also signed up for a Dear Jane Christmas block swap so will be making some Dear Jane blocks again soon (that will probably be my only ones for this year).
And last but not least, my order has been delivered on Wednesday... yeah! can't wait to play. I'll tell you more about that soon, stay tuned!
And I am some glad I made this one on time as this month challenge is awesome. Hopefully I'll be able to get it started soon to post a picture in good time. All those are designed by Kandy at A Break at Home and they are brilliant, I really enjoy them.
Today was a very nice day with our monthly quilting day at my local group. I have managed to piece 2 table runners and should be posting a picture soon.
Then today when I came back from work was a lovely package from the USA waiting for me. Inside I discover a very pretty Friendship Bag from the swap organised by Michele at Quilting Gallery. I love the colour combination that Becca has used. Plus she sent me some goodies including a lovely scissor charm that she made me. I am so lucky! Can you see the charm hanging out of the bag?
I am guilty of not having finished my bag to send away yet but it will be ready very shortly. I have chosen a different color combination than Becca. Hope the bag I am making will be as nice as the one I received.
I will show you what I have been working on soon. Stay tuned!
