I have had my machine and tables picked up for the last few days of Holiday festivities. We kept things low key due to my Mom's health. I did some hand stitching while watching various seasonal movies in the evening, it was perfect to keep the de-stress mode going. But, I am ready to sew.
I had made a number of these bookmarks using this TUTORIAL. She uses pretty ribbons, but I used up a lot of my scrap bindings to make my own 'ribbon'. I have some 'boy' color ones that need those cute truck, dino, car buttons sewn on. I'll do a few inbetween some machine time......
as those bear paw blocks need working on. I have all of my pieces cut and now set up to assembly line sew by the machine - ready to go!
And just to show I got it done - the panel quilt for my granddaughter got finished. I ordered this when Hart's fabric did a special print of three 'princess' large panels - blonde, red head, and brunette. These are 60" x 72" and you just play with thread. I did some outline and accent quilting on her dress. The background just has some ribbon quilting thru it. Backed with a blue plushy (the purple minky wasn't big enough) and no batting.
I hope you all had a lovely and relaxed Holiday,
