Scrappy Wenesday


Happily the Tiny Tree QAL with Temecula Quilt Co project has been completed.  This will probably be the last finish for the year ans I need to clear up the creative space to get ready for the Season.


These are made by my SIL - a quick scrap project for a quick gift.


A corner 'hand' pocket pot holder - you can make or buy (she makes these), some kitchen utensils, and ribbon.

  
Add utensils to pocket, fold corners back under and tie with ribbon.


And I bought myself a Christmas present - a wool pressing matt.  I use a wool backed pad on my big ironing board, but this is for my little portable table.  I can set this up next to my work station with my small travel iron to press all those tiny, scrappy blocks for my first 2020 project.

Remember to treat yourself this season - you deserve it!
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  3. Your Tiny Tree turned out great. I recently bought one of those wool pressing mats too. I really like it. It’ll make a great ironing board when we’re traveling, but I’m using it at home over the top of my larger ironing board. Really helps getting a nice flat fold when you’re sewing little blocks together. Between that and my clapper, everything is flat, flat, flat.

  4. I love the tiny tree. I saved all of the steps. Hopefully, I will get over my fear of tiny pieces and make it in time for next year. Your sister-in-law's idea is wonderful. It's perfect for when you just need something small to give. I keep looking at wool pressing mats, but haven't given in yet. Tomorrow is my birthday, I may give myself a treat a buy one. The ice here is terrible. I shouldn't complain, it's probably a lot worse in your neck of the woods.

  5. Lots of tiny trees popping up everywhere. The tiny Tuesday blocks were small enough for me. I have a wool pressing mat on my Christmas list, but if I don't get it, I'll buy in for myself. There are so many different brands now, though, with widely variable pricing, that it's hard to know if the quality as all the same.
