November Christmas Quilt Along
Wow, the last quilt along with Sue, it does give a wake up call! Getting set up and waiting on the coffee. I will update on this page thru the day.
I was going to work on the Christmas quilt done with this group - just needs quilting (binding made and ready), BUT I need to straighten these units. AND by the dust, also pull them out and do some cleaning. So I am going to do several small projects working just from these units while I clean/organize. Ah, coffee finished brewing - now I can start!
Here are a few of the 'manly' eye glass cases finished - for the senior home . For anyone new - the cases tutorial I did is here.
I made some tea wallets - will pair up with some teas for gifts. Need to clear that work spot up and then some lunch before the next project.
** I found a tutorial that is very close to how I make these -
I straightened out the under-bed storage tote of X-mas fabrics - bagged all the strings (next years project) and bagged the small bits that need cutting down (have zip lock bags started with 2", 2.5", and 3.5" squares). I added my 12 Days of Christmas blocks in this. Now I will just pull once a week to finish up that project as the blocks are released.
I managed to go thru each drawer in the white tower and clean/sort/arrange each one. They weren't too bad, but a few items got tucked in the wrong drawer and needed to go back to their rightful home. I need to fold laundry and get to some other household chores. I have some fabric pulled to prep for key fobs. But I will be running into my time for hand stitching. So calling this my Quilt Along day.
