Whooping Friday


I enjoyed the Virtual Cookie Exchange which made me gain a few pounds just reading recipes and seeing all those trays of sweets.  It made me push to finish up the Kaffe quilt.  I had a lot of fun making this as well as quilting it.


Of course it gave me a few left overs that I just could not let sit or get stashed away.  I mean, really - this is such fun stuff!


Little 1.5" white squares  with 1" x 1.5" sashing and 1" cornerstones made for a fun miniature.  Cut offs just the right size for borders and enough for a scrappy binding.


Some of the larger pieces where pieced for the back.  A cute little table topper that can be used either side or hung on a clip-hanger for mini wall quilt.


There was still a bit left to play with.


So I am working on another miniature with bitty log cabins.  I think I will have that Kaffe out of my system by then - and all used up as well.

I don't do a lot of Christmas decorating - I leave that for the shop 'pretty'.  Besides, my furkids would find too many things fun to play with.  BUT, I need to do some house cleaning and will set up a few items on the mantel just so I am not called a Grinch.  We've had some snow almost every day thru the week - it should have given me some 'spirit', but I think it just has given me (and the furkids) early cabin fever.  I put the extra heavy double fleece throw on the guest bed as we dipped into single digits a few nights; and that is where those two have been hanging out.

A few new buttons went on the side bar and 2019 is already looking interesting.  It might be time to make plans for the new year.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  4. Your quilt look lovely, especially the zig zag one. I don't do much Christmas decorating at all. I put a wreath on the door and called that enough!
