    I love this cozy! Did you use a pattern?

    I have been binding, binding binding! Made quilts for Christmas! My fingers are tired, but it is so relaxing I find and it seems the hours just pass by! I can't wait until I am done with these then I have plans to start a quilt for myself! That never happens usually I give them away. Well happy sewing everyone.

    I'm making myself a patchwork bow tuck bag using 4 of the Connecting Threads Rose Manor Fabrics. I've also got half the quilting done on the second mug rug I made for my December Secret Pal Swap partner. I only have to make a couple of wristlets for Christmas this year. I'm not making a whole lot of homemade gifts this year. We are doing a name drawing at work so I don't have to come up with 9 different gifts this year and I already made a table runner for that gift.

Size:  894.3 KBI am about to hand quilt this. I just put the beautiful batik backing on it last night. I am considering using multi colored thread. Haven't decided yet.

    I am making placemats from my scrap pile. Is it acceptable to give someone placemats using fabrics leftover from a quilt I made for them?

    I think that would be great. I'd love having another item made from scraps from an original quilt.

    After I finish a simple "Friendship Bag" for a friend, I'll be continuing on two "HOME OF THE BRAVE" quilts for the families of Ohio's fallen soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our guild has been involved in this project for several years and unfortunately, there is still a need!

    By the end of those projects, I'll be working on finding my cutting table again! HAhahaa

    Merry Christmas!

    I'm working on two baby blankets for friends that are due soon, a couple purses for a friend (which are almost done I'm just procrastinating about picking up some more interfacing ), and trying to figure out the pattern instructions for a couple aprons for two of my sisters in law. Once I am done with that... I'm going to start attempting a bargello (eek) for my sister in law that just recently got married.

    I just finished orders for 4 Bow Tucks bags - I had made 12 for a craft fair in early Nov., came home with 4 so I was genuinely pleased they were a big hit. I also had quilted placemats and table runners, but only sold a few of those. In total I have sold 13 or 14 bags in addition to 2 bags as gifts. I had hoped the bags would do well, and they did, so I now have some nice "mad money" for whatever, but it goes quickly especially with 2 trips to JoAnn's and an order I hope to make on line. but it's been fun. I have 4 or 5 baby quilt tops done, need to sandwich and machine quilt those, plus I've started cutting out 6" squares for a twin size bed for my sister's GGD. My sister and I were supposed to make one for her first GGD, but I've had a great deal of difficulty making and finishing it and now there is another GGD. Since I've procrastinated this much, and since I still have some of the fabric left, I'll just add from my stash and it will be a surprise for my great-niece, if I ever finish. I've also made tissue holders to give out as small little presents, as the situation arises. My biggest "Roundtoit" project, will be a black/white quilt for next July's family reunion. My family has sent the fabric, now I have to figure out what quilt pattern to make, and I need to finish it in early spring so that my oldest niece can long-arm it on her new long-arm machine. Oh, I also have to finish the Craftsy BOM blocks, as I only have half of them finished. Other than that, I don't have much on my plate. LOL.

    Just finished a baby quilt

    I just finished a baby quilt with a fleece back for my girlfriends first grandchild. It was from a Missouri Quilt tutorial. I had lots of bright fabric to use.

    Glad you asked! - I've been doing other stuff lately and finally started quilting again with Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street mystery. Working on clue #2 was to create the Flying geese. This also gave me the push I needed to start another scrappy Ive wanted to do for a long time - A SPiDERWEB!

    I've got my fireworks quilt all pieced for next August's deadline. Need to figure out a small Black/White quilt to make for a challenge due mid January. Also need to make 3 tree ornaments for this year.

    I'm still making 18 in square quilts for Threads of Love. It is so much fun. I usually can complete a little quilt in a day or less, in spite of my shaking hands.
    Happy quilting Grandma

    Isn't it fun to see what other quilters are doing?? I have one Santa wall hanging to quilt, a mystery block to do, another block for quilt club meeting where you get a fat quarter for a $1 each month and make as many 12" blocks as you want and your name gets put in a hat and then someone's name is drawn. I won this past month and got 9 blocks made with a Thimbleberries Christmas fabric.

    I'm working on a Double Wrench (from quilterscache.com) quilt for my DH. He loves working on cars and his favorite car is yellow, so I'm making it yellow and white.
