Wow… this week went fast. My 6 year-old has been sick since Sunday, so I suppose that’s where most of that time has gone. I have found only small bits here & there to sew. I am hoping this week holds more quality time for Betty & me. (I have decided my sewing machine’s name is Betty. She works hard, she’s a sweaty Betty.) So, here is this week’s list…
December do. Good Stitches blocks- Last week I had one done, I finished the second one & got them sent off this week!
Christmas Quilt- 12 blocks finished this week! 16 blocks left!
New desk- Excuse the mess! I went to some shops in my small town & found this desk for a reasonable price. I am so happy to have my laptop off my cutting table! I haven’t gotten it all organized yet because the drawers smell yucky & I don’t want to put anything in them until I get rid of the smell. Any ideas?? I have wiped them out & have baking soda sitting in them right now.
Doll accessories for L’s Birthday- My niece turned 3 this week! I have decided to make her some doll accessories. I am making a diaper bag from the Child’s Messenger Bag pattern from One Yard Wonders, bibs from this tutorial, & diapers from this tutorial. I really hope she loves & uses the things I am making for her!
Fabrics for Swoon-along- I joined a quilt along. I didn’t mean to, I just HAD to! It’s the Swoon-along . I mean, how could I resist? I had the idea to use Heath (the black cross hatched fabric) for the background. Now I can’t give it up. I LOVE the idea! I just haven’t figured out what else to use… (I chose the bottom pile in the dark one night while we were watching a movie… I think I might love it!)
