SUNDAY - Still reeling from yesterday's quilt-heavy day, I did MORE quilty stuff today! My friend, Britt, and I went to the Thimble Pleasures SALE for the 40% discount. I did some MAJOR damage!! First, on some stash enhancement:
Next, I went back through looking for pieces to add to my BH Mystery selections:
Then, I went back one more time to pick up some of the fabric that I had been drooling over for months:
When I got home, I was excited about my purchases and that excitement translated into... SEWING!!!
Ready for embellishment:
MONDAY - There's nothing like Knit Group to get my work-week off to a good start!
Sewing began as soon as I hit the door and before long, my Coffee Take-Out Cups were quilted and personalized for their recipients:
TUESDAY - Today was a Stay-at-Home day. I worked on finishing (binding and labeling) these O Christmas Tree quilts. EIGHT of them!! Here is a look at the progress made...
The first one:
And the stack waiting to have the binding closed up and stitched down, but that will have to wait for later:
I just remembered that I had an appointment to get to. Oops!!
When I returned, I worked on finishing the Coffee Ornaments. HERE they are waiting, to be stuffed and sewn closed:
Now, I just have to decide what fill material to use or if I want to keep them flat. What would YOU do???
WEDNESDAY - Another Stay-at-Home day where I didn't actually end up staying home!!
DS1 arrived home for the holidays... all I had to do was take him and his driver out to lunch. She got a BIG hug and a tin of Moose Munch, as a thank you for the extra TWO HOURS that I got to spend sewing instead of driving!! :o))
I completed and delivered these ornaments. Sorry!! I didn't end up having time to wait to see what YOU had to say. Just look how cute they are on our tree:
(Since it was actually Girls Night Out... can't forget that!!!)
THURSDAY - My weekly Quilt Group met today. I showed off my Christmas Tree mini quilts:
FRIDAY - Today was spent with out-of-town guests. DS2 arrived home for the holidays. Other than that, My Christmas Magic Cowl grew a bit while everyone was visiting:
SATURDAY - One of the LAST of Angela's LINK PARTY days for 2016 and all I had to show was...
A BIG FAT NOTHING!!! :o((
Sorry, Angela! I absolutely LOVE the RSC, but this week I was concentrating on gift quilting. Perhaps, NEXT week will be the week that I dive into my rainbow projects. Maybe THIS one:
Follow that link to see what some of the other RSC Quilters finished up during the last week. I'll be right behind you!
Until next time...
