October Christmas QAL Weekend


This month's Christmas QAL weekend is being hosted by Joanna of Needle Thread Happiness.  That day is fast approaching - do you have a project? Join us for the whole weekend or even just one day or even a couple of hours.



I'll be embellishing my challenge piece.



And I like to work on multiple projects, so I have these bits of scraps ready for a little project that was presented at our quilt guild meeting.

I will be stepping out for a little bit at some point as our LQS has another 'adopt a bolt' sale this weekend (25% off if you take the rest of the bolt)- yes, I'm shopping on my 'no-more-fabric' diet.  But I've cleared two shelves, so I need to fill them - and I need backing! 

** linking up with Joanna **

I will be updating on the same page thru the weekend

UPDATE



Some of my embellishing supplies - had to put the beads, buttons and metallic threads on the ironing board (kitties) and more is on the side table  - this is going to take a while.......



And I made my trip to the LQS sale.  What I am going to do with that wild rams fabric - hey, that half yard looked lonely.  Benartex, RJR, Red Rooster, Moda, Windham, Andover, (EEEKKK) Ro Gregg and Nancy Halvorsen!!!!



My sewing machine was feeling left out, so I quickly whipped up these log cabin blocks from those scraps.  That pin dot isn't really that bright  and I need to clean the glue off my cutting mat (SIL).

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. Sounds like the perfect opportunity for backing fabric at your LQS. I'm really liking the Twister Tree. It has been fun to chart the progress!
