Here's how I did with this week's quest...
SUNDAY - I slept late, did some laundry, and caught up on some of my favorite blogs. I also quilted that sweet little aqua mug rug that I made last week:
I also quilted up a test piece for a new-to-me quilted bucket pattern:
MONDAY - Knit Group was on today's agenda. That was followed by a sewing session with Needleb. Yes, ANOTHER!!! We have to pack in all the days that we can before job situation changes occur.
I made a Quilted Yarn Bowl using (an adaptation of) THIS Little Quilted Bucket pattern by Christina Cameli:
I used a couple of pink fabric scraps from my stash and one from my friend's scrap stash, too. Thanks, B!! It turned out SEW cute:
Once that was done, I concentrated on finishing an outstanding Mug Rug Swap:
As a last ditch effort to catch up on my RSC sewing from November, I laid out my Scrap Jar Stars:
In Light BROWN...
As well as Dark BROWN:
Earlier this afternoon, I did some cutting and marking for Clue #3 of my On Flamingo Lake mystery quilt. Notice the marking tool:
I sewed some, too! When I got home, I posted about it and linked up with the other Mystery Quilters working on Bonnie Hunter's On Ringo Lake. Lots of variation to be seen!
TUESDAY - It's a FREE day!!! I spent it working on Christmas presents for my Knit Group. Tonight is Girls Night Out, Holiday Edition. We typically exchange gifts. Handmade, yarny, or otherwise. This year I've got a variety of items from yarn purchased at SAFF to a sweater purchased when shopping with the recipient to...
A quilted mug rug made this morning:
Along with a(nother) quilted "yarn bowl." This one is purple and took multiple tries to complete:
I was a little disappointed when this was done. The print seemed bolder before quilting. :o((
That's OK... Beth LOVED it!! :o))
WEDNESDAY - I spent the WHOLE day in the studio happily doing elf work. Elf work? Yes, elf work. You know... making all the toys for good little knitters. Here's today's model:
Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict posted about her 2018 Scrap Challenge:
THURSDAY - Weekly Quilt Group was follow with more elf sewing. Here's what I accomplished today...
... and a bonus "yarn bowl", too:
Marie was so excited that she could hardly contain herself:
Nicole was near tears as she opened her gift:
Pink was PERFECT for her:
... And Nicole already put their quilted "yarn bowls" to work:
When I got home, I got a fair amount of elf sewing done, too. (I should have since I stayed up so late!) Sorry, but you still have to wait to see what else I've been up to.
SATURDAY - This week was a blur. Each day blended into the next and somehow, we have arrived at LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge! I'm looking forward to seeing who has been in a finishing mood this week. You may want to check it out, too. There's always SEW much to see.
I also linked up with Amanda @ Crazy Mom Quilts
Cynthia @ Quilting is more fun than Housework
forUntil next time...
