Design Wall Monday 12/22/14


I have been doing more hand stitching of late, but I did want to make sure I got the HashTag blocks done for the Blocks for Sidney.  I cut all my pieces and then chain sewed them all in about 1/2 hr.  When doing these types of charity blocks I always make one for each of my children and one for each of my grands - I would be devistated if I lost any of them.  I sent my blocks on to Julie at Intrepid Thread, who has graciously offered to collect blocks in the US to send on to Joshua.


I've been going thru my totes to get prepped for 2015.  The only project on my December list is my Let's Book It, so I decided it was time to pull those blocks and get them together.  Seems every tote I pulled to  prep - this guy thought I was giving him his own personal bed!  Yeah, he laid on the blocks too - which made for interesting work.


The center did get put together and I really need to finish this one up - the month is just flying by.  Today will be the sashing and then to sandwich it up for quilting.

I will be taking some time away from the blog for Holiday festivities with family - Merry Christmas and Seasonal Blessings.  

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. You weren't making personal beds for Moe to find the most comfortable? I'm sure he's a huge help when it comes to arranging blocks, he gives you a different perspective :)

  4. I think those hash tag blogs are so cute and I can't wait to see the finished project. Kitties find the most comfy spots to plop down in so obviously your blocks are pretty cozy. Merry Christmas to you!

  7. You do such good work, and what a nice thought you put behind the making of each block! Your Tux Boy looks like he pretty much manages things in your sewing area! LOL
