Friday? Again? Already?
Well, here we are once more friends and family. I hope your week was a good one and that today doesn't see you just hanging on by a thread.
This week I finished up my mini swap projects.
You will probably remember this
well, she's washed, dried and crinkly ready to go...minus the caramel dipping sauce! She shrank a little, but it doesn't seem to bother her much! LOL
My other official finish is
the Snowflake mini. I'm so loving the colors and the softness of it all, I can't stand it! This may have to be repeated to become a quilt for snuggling up under.
When Christmas is over.
Which means all my hand crafted gifts
should will be finished.
Anywho...I found something to do with the cute, little snowflake hexes
they're on the back. Falling softly through the first snowfall of the season.
I hope she likes it. She gave me this to help me decide what to make, "I like the traditional Christmas colors as well as the Victorian pinkish Christmas colors and the winter blue and white shades."
Meanwhile, back at the farm...
Bean scored in the reading material! Mimi M. brought down a whole bunch of "boy flavored" books for him to devour. We ride in the car at night with the light on for reading purposes. We all have our noses stuck in books at dinnertime (who needs to talk when Frank and Joe Hardy are in danger?). We have a light they can read by in bed when they're supposed to be asleep. (I don't mind them staying up a little bit more until they're good and tired as long as they're reading...doorway to innumerable worlds and a greater imagination, verbal skills etc! LOL)
Well, one of WIP's is a Christmas gift that I'm working on now that the minis are finished.
Hubby sniffles has an aunt in a care facility. She loves flutterbys. This summer, the house she had lived in with Grammy (who passed about this time not so long ago) for so, so many years was auctioned off along with most of their accumulated belongings. Mimi M. found huge stashes of fabric and a lot of them had flutterbys in them. She lovingly washed and ironed all the fabric...think armloads here!...and I chose fabric that I thought Aunt B might like. I've got the top done
(my moments picture...yes, that is a stain on the carpet that I'm telling myself real hard I don't care about enough to clean before having Thanksgiving Dinner here next week!)
once again inspired by RPQ's beautiful pattern.
It's a lap size quilt and I have the fabric to add the sashing. I'm working on a pieced back and hope to have it finished by next Friday, even if we don't have Sew and Tell.
small fabric basket with doggie bone shaped cookies for the mail lady
K's doll baby quilts
B's rolled pencil holder
something for KT
something for hubby snookums
and the fun just goes on and on, and on, and on!
I love life!
Happy, happy day to you all!
