Christmas QAL & Challenge - Saturday


Well, we have snow for today's Christmas QAL - the lovely Hazel is our hostess.  Now we didn't get much snow (yet-still falling), but where I was headed today did - so I have cancelled my outing and staying safe at home.  Which means I get to play today!



I had prepped a few projects thinking I would only have Sunday - so I can relax a little and enjoy working on them.



This is hard to see, but a Karen Combs for Blank Quilting.  With pretty gold metallic splashed thru it.  My Binding for the challenge piece.



GOsh, I can't work this camera - some key fob webbing waiting for the hardware to be attached.

I have to run a few in-town errands and then will be back to play.  I will update today's projects on this page thru the day.

UPDATE


The key fobs are all done.  A gross of these were made for the vending season (a gross is 144).  I don't remember where I ordered the clips from, but I bought my webbing at Farm & Tractor Store - way cheeper than a fabric store.


The binding is done on my challenge piece!  Yes, it is all done - with hanging corners and a label.  Waiting for the show of finishes next month.  See, even the back has no red or green.


And that 'block' everyone remarked on - not a block at all but the layout for a mini-twister wreath.  A new Mini for my table top hanger.  Sandwiched and waiting for quilting , embelishings and binding.

I am putting aside my fabrics - I pulled some supplies to do some gift wrapping to finish out my Saturday.  Thak you for stopping by.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  9. How appropriate to have snow for the Christmas QAL. We might get snow tonight then showers. That first block you have is reminding me of one I saw online that I liked quite a bit because the quilter fussy cut some of the squares. Was it you?
