The last month of the "Keeping it Simple" year and I am keeping it simple.
Last year it was baby's First Christmas stocking, so this year I need to make Miss Cutie Potooie a selfie bag like I made her brothers. You can find the free pattern HERE. The only thing I changed is rather than the drawstring feature (which is simple to do - the pattern directions are super), I take a sneaker lace and just fold in half and catch it in the side seam. Then it can be wrapped around the bag and tied.
And I need to clear my mantel so I can start decorating. So the last two minis need removal for their finishing.
That's it! Simple! I will have those bindings to do (and maybe I'll get interested in those dang orange peels) for Slow Sunday Stitching. There is a break from 'Let's Book It' - I have already picked out my first project for the New Year. My SIL even finished up her last project yesterday, so her sewing area has been cleaned and packed up.
I am in the Santa Sack Swap again ( have joined every year) and my package of goodies arrived and she has hers (totally forgot to take photos). That's why I need to decorate - want to set these out. I have many lovelies from past swaps for the season and they need to come out of storage, too.
Our Quilt Guild party will be a fun self time this month and I do have an Executive meeting for Hall of Fame (will do some Christmas shopping on this trip).
I really put the blinders on all the cyber sales - BUT,,,,, I did finally break and just couldn't pass up 60% off (and found a code for an extra 20%) quilt kits at Connecting Threads and to fill in thread needs for the New Year.
well just for fun
