Monday Making

I have been in quilting mode the last few days.  It has been extremely cold, snowy, icy, and having a car that needs repair - house bound has led to the perfect timing for this.  Four quilts have been finished and I have two more sandwiched/basted ready for a showdown.  

They will wait for tomorrow as today I am heading out to sit and sew with some guild members.  We are making a snowman hanger for a community decoration event - the streets lined with snowmen made by various groups as part of the season celebration.

I wanted to share something my SIL made.  I think she found it on a DYI site and made a few of them.  Those are canning lids - she found silver ones at a dollar store and gold ones at Walmart.  The small ornaments are another dollar store find as well as the wired ribbon.   She used a special metal glue to hold the lids (the glue they had recommended didn't work).  A different seasonal project that is not too costly.

In the late 60's early 70's I made those ornaments with cat food tins. Back in the day, you could open cat food cans from both ends, :-) so you ended up with the "circle" to hang an "ornament". Glad to see that not only do clothes fashion come around, but also DIY projects. :-)

Good for you finishing up all those quilts. Cute little holiday project for sure. Have fun with your snowman. The seasons festivities begin.

It is fun to have a few days to quilt when it is cold and rainy outside! I'll be working on quilting a hurricane quilt today, then later putting up Christmas decorations. I have all of the autumn finally packed up!
