Still at the Christmas Party


I wanted Joanna to have someone sewing with her today - and I have a mess on three tables right now.  I know that doesn't look like Christmas fabric, but I had started my secret project last night and I want to get the flimsie done so I can clean this table up.  This is the table my SIL uses when she comes to sew - she'll need it on Monday so I best get busy.




Yes, one table cleared off.  That secret project is sandwiched and ready to quilt - binding is made and waiting.  NO the fabric is not wrinkled - it is a map.  Now on to the next table and project.




I cleared the second table - I used the 'Simple Table Runner' pattern from HERE.  I only had a little bit of this Hoffman Challenge fabrics, so could only make the runner with two squares instead of the three in the pattern.  This, too is ready for quilting - I know what I am doing tomorrow.


And I will finish cleaning up the third table once Bella is finish napping in the Holiday Fabric Tote.  I think it is time for a little personal clean up and think about where I want to treat myself to dinner out.  Sorry Sue, I forgot the crock pot use - tomorrows dinner.

Thank you Joanna for being our hostess this weekend - off to see what others accomplished this weekend.
  **I will update on this post thru the day**

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  4. Sounds like you have got quite the production line going. It must be a good set up since you are making progress.

  5. So Bella came down from the tree and climbed into the Christmas fabric bin. I'm going to curl up and do the same thing very soon. I like your runner and think one that size will be very useful. Thanks for being with us this weekend.

  11. Cute table runner! It will fit very nicely on a smaller table :*) And speaking of cute.... Bella is so sweet all cuddled up in the holiday fabrics - do you think visions of sugar plums are dancing in her head?
