Last RoundUp

It's hard to believe that we are heading into the last month of the year.  So much needs to be finished.  I feel so bad for Earlene as she has been buried under other project, lost to the finishing world.  I have had to hunt her up multiple times.  December MUST be her month as Barbara @ Cat Patches will be rounding up these Bag Ladies for the year.

In searching for my Bonnie Hunter Challenge Rails, I stumbled across this box.  Last year's challenge of Hourglass blocks, but I had opt to make Broken Dishes with all these triangles in a gifted baggie.  So I will work more of these inbetween threads on Earlene.

And as we head toward  the shortest day - Winter Solstice - I realize that the Temperature Quilt will be at it's half-way mark.  It will , also, be a good time to get the large hoop out and start handquilting my Leap Year quilt.

I did get the purses done, but need to sew on the buttons.  The rest of those scraps (originating from my Jasmine Jacket) did get put into the CW tote and will probably get used into Barbara Brackman's 2018 QAL.

Because it's Feline Friday and to show that I moved that tote so I can honestly work those projects out of it - Moe has his favorite 'bed' back.  My large, high quilt rack that I wrapped a pillow onto and has 4 blankets piled on it - Prince and the Pea!!  I will have to find him a new bed soon as once things start to get moved around, this quilt rack is going to my Daughter's home.

Now to find Earlene again,
Sewingly Yours,

Just a few stitches on Earlene will get you into the party. No worries!

I, too, have a whole pile of unfinished items, some small, and some HUGE. But having a comfy bed for the felines is priority!!! Christmas always seems to sneak up so fast, we will be having a very quiet day down here, so no need for massive preparations. And I managed to get two items all finished this last week,.Hooray, both posted off.

Moe doesnt seem to worried to have had the bag removed 😆😆, they always find the best spot don't they. Good to see you have found Earlene.

The bags turned out beautifully! The temperature quilt has been fun to watch come together. Hard to believe that the winter solstice is not that far off.
