Wow! Can you believe it's December 13th already? And yesterday was my last Sunday before Christmas that I had time to do anything gift related.
And...I didn't get as much done as I had hoped!
I have been working on some table runners for gifts (no photos - sorry, maybe next time)!
And came up with a great way to gift them...in old Crystal Light containers.
Really cute! And I can cut into my stash of fabric AND scrapbooking with this one!
The recipients so far have been very pleased!
I also went scrap diving last night (after making 4 pillow cases with stash fabrics) and made this beautiful "Folded Star"! This is based on one I designed a few years ago and have been teaching the class at the shop where I work. The class is always well received and the students love the finished product!
It is so pretty in person the photo is a little hard to take when the frame has glass in it.
The flash gets in the way!
Well, off to work. I have lined up a few things to sew tonight. That's how I am attacking the work load...prep in the morning...sew it in the evening!
There is plenty to do today, I don't think I will be leaving the house at all!
My husband said he is going to decorate the outside after he gets home from karate ~ YIPPEE!
That means I will be putting up the Christmas Tree!
Then I can spend the next week decorating little corners of the house as I go...I like to take my time and add little touches here and there. I never put everything I have out; that would be impossible! I do have some favorites that go out every year!
After the tree trimming it will be time to quilt this (it is ready to be quilted)!
This is "Yoshi's Secret Garden"! A lap quilt for my Mother-in-Law for Christmas.
I made this entire quilt from scraps and stash fabric...no shopping for this one! Well, maybe some shopping in my fabric closet! And that's the "secret"!
Yoshi loves flowers and is sight impaired...she will tell me she can smell these flowers, that's how sweet she is! She will love this!
