Phew, sneaking in under the wire (15 hours left), not because I have put it off, but I've written a post each day this week, something that hasn't occurred in a while. I thought the list was going to be short, just two items, yep, carried over (massive sigh from me and from my daughter, Dayna, I can hear it now) that are horribly neglected and, as a result, long overdue gifts.
I thought that'd be it. Focus. Ya, me right? Fat chance. So here are some other projects that have to get done this quarter, so I may as well put them on the list.
here for the guild's charity project for Christmas. I have 3 more kits cut, hoping they'll go at the meeting...
As it's a small quilt, and went together quite quickly, I am putting it together with the half hexie quilt I made the flimsy of this week as well. These are basically the same fabrics, with just a couple of differences.
7. Make a stocking for Brady. I've wanted to do one for a couple of years now, and I've decided that it needs to happen. This year. I plan to find a stocking pattern in an older issue of American Patchwork & Quilting or off their website, All People Quilt, and make it my own, personalizing it for him. I just have a bunch of Christmas fabric here, as I don't have the actual pattern picked out, nor designed!
This is going to be a quilt for a dear aunt who turns 75 years young this December. I actually have 3 cows done. I didn't have yellow scraps with me while we were still in Florida in early Spring, pulled the yellows once we were home in April...and the cows went out to pasture, never to be seen again this year. Each month I see Leanna's adorable creations, I think, damn! gotta get back at those. It might not get to her on time. Just sayin'.
So from 2.... to 8. It's totally do-able, if I sew like I have been this past week. Oh yeah, I hemmed two more pants for Dayna (fun) and I even made another tiny pincushion with scraps from a wheelchair quilt and John's Shamrock quilt. It's the one on the left, 4" square. These are so cute!
The one on the right is scraps from cutting my mystery quilt, which also has Shamrock (and Mystery) leftovers in it! I haven't closed the opening as I still have to find a source that doesn't cost a fortune for crushed walnut shells (talk to the squirrels out back I know ha) or silica sand. MacGyver sourced out both at Princess Auto, but in a 50-pound bag, cough.
Linking up with the lovely Adrianne in New Zealand at On The Windy Side.
