So, when I started this post, my niece’s quilt was still a work in progress – but now it’s done! Finished! Finito! Whew! Altered Squares Quilt done, check! I felt really pressed for time there at the end. The photos above are of the binding pinned but not sewn, and when I did sew them, well, they’re a bit wonky I was in such a hurry. But, she won’t care about that. And, I was so rushed to get it wrapped, I didn’t even get a chance to photograph it all spread out. Oh well. And, I made a sweet label with my new sewing machine’s alphabet too! Well, that was also kind of wonky – I forgot to stabilize the back of the fabric before I started the machine embroidery. Oh well, again.
Anyway, here she is getting her gift:
And us snuggling under it!
And, how about an Olive photo just for the heck of it!
And look what I got for Hanukkah from Danielle –
Hmm, and there are two of them . . . they’re not quite the dresden plate pillow cushions I had in my head as a future project . . . but I think they’ll look sweet outside in the sun room. I think Lemon is a little freaked out by them – thinks more dogs are moving in.
And, finally, I just wanted to throw out there – I made 50 stinkin’ latkes –
Thankfully, Hanukkah is only once a year. I fried them up on Saturday, and my house still smells like french fries.
So, onward! Next up – the Penny Sampler! My fabric is en route! I went with the vintage color scheme, and I’ll post more about that when the fabric arrives, any minute! I took advantage of all of the fab Black Friday sales, and I think once it arrives, along with my fabric stabilizer (not going to forget it this time), I should be good to go.
And, of course – those City Sampler Blocks! I haven’t forgotten about them – between the two pies we baked for Thanksgiving, as well as a sweet potato concoction, the Hanukkah party at our house, and the trial I was supposed to start last Monday (she pled), I haven’t had a chance to sew a stitch, craft a thing, knit a row. Time to get back to normal, I’d say!
Hope everyone had an awesome Turkey Day (belated wishes are still good wishes!)
