Sunday, hubby snowflake took the boys "shopping" and they were gone a long time. Before they left, they had helped tidy up the house so I would have time to work on finishing Aunt B's quilt.
This summer I got a new Janome Quilter's Companion and it came with a walking foot.
This close to Christmas I didn't have time to quilt using a meandering stitch like I like...sew, I just did a simple grid quilt pattern. I really like the way it turned out.
And so does Lady.
Who doesn't want to see the quilt leave the house.
And threatens to tell Rexy.
Which is a whole other story that will have to be told later!
Also, by the end of last week, I had finished up this
for a certain, sweet, shy, friend from Middlest's science class.
When Sew Mama Sew went insane a couple of weeks ago...I cashed in on the insanity!
Tina of cutelittlepiggytoes was gifting away
"a pair of New-Mommy Warming Slippers (made with Amy Butler fabric) and new-Baby Booties. The booties should fit 6-12months and the slippers fit up to size 8. The mommy warming slippers are something new I'm making. The bottom of the slippers have pockets full of rice. So, just pop these babies in the micro and you've got some soft warming slippers."
They came. I saw. They conquered!
They are...absolutely...the Bomb!
My feet get so blasted cold in the winter, I could not have won a better giftaway!
This is also a "Moments' picture. On the left, last year's school stuff, some of which we still use. Behind my feet, this year's school stuff we definitely use!
Also included in the package of sunshine and cheerfullness
little bitty buddy shoes that need to be shipped to Florida!
An origami ornament (which thrilled the male people of my house to no ends!) which is too cool!
star fabric and quilt labels! Tina went above and beyond and I am adding her to my blogroll, because anyone who can survive three boys and a husband is a Superhero to me! I hope you stop by and take a look and maybe order yourself a pair of the best slippers in the world!
Thanks again Tina!
