Do You Hear What I Hear

 


I haven't gotten a lot of stitching in - by machine - mostly doing hand work.  My time is taken up by doing tasks for Mom and that's OK.  I am slowly working on some pillowcases using the 'hot dog' method.  They are for our Guild's donation for the Community Christmas Boxes and due at our next meeting.  A few juvinile sets and I'm sure I got something for adult sets.

And I had to do a quick retake of what I was hearing.  We had a sudden and very ferocious thunder/lightening/wind storm pass thru.  By the time I prepped for the worst, it was over.  Boy did it rain!!  BUT a thunder storm in the NorEast in December is rather rare and odd - and scarey.

Hope you all aren't stressing over holiday projects - relax and breath,

Monday Making

 


I have not linked up with Beth in some time.  I see she has a Christmas QAL on her side bar with the blocks listed.  I might have to play.


BUT I need to work on the applique' on the guild round robin piece.  Some of the pieces overlap into the previous round and some will overlap into the next round.  A LOT of leaves to apply.


The round is made and once the leaves I can work on are done, then I will add it.  Then it will be adding the primative flowers and leaves that will 'lap' into those log cabins.  There will be berries but I've decided to use buttons for those (not sewing little rounds please) which means they wait until the quilt is completed/quilted.

We are in a very cold snap and have had some snow, this is a nice project to work on at this time.

Be Thankful


 As I still struggle with grief over the loss of my brother, I am thankful that my Mom is still with us.  It will be a very small gathering and quiet day with plenty of food - and probably naps.

Wishing you many blessings as the year gets closer to a finish,

Sewingly YOurs,

Monday Making

 


I need to make forty 4" (finished) log cabin blocks for my next round of the Guild Home Round Robin.  The round was "houses" - hey, log cabins are houses.  I will be adding a blue and then brown strip to these.  Might even get these ready to go on and then the applique' that overlaps into the bottom and top rounds can be done.


 I saw this on pinterest and thought of my Dad.  He loved the Coca-Cola bear and this would be so awesome.  I don't have all this white and bears, but think after SOOOOO many years of no tree I should put one up for Dad and Brother.  When we were kids, my brother (who recently passed) and I always were the ones who went on our mountain to pick out, cut down, drag with a sleigh back to the house, and set up the tree.

We've done a little decor of the season on Mom's side - gotta find her two little trees.  One has all music instrament ornaments - she taught music for many years.  AND one was all handmade ornaments given over many years from her many quilting students. 

Sewingly Yours,
