Christmas Challenge is over!!!
OH MY -----it is the 1st of Sept already and that means the Christmas in August challenge that I had is over and now I just have to hear from everybody who was in it to see what all was accomplished--I sure know that I did get alot done even without having the whole month to do the sewing in as I had hoped--but it feels sooooo good to have a big start on it--(and I am still working on mine till Labor Day-----then watch out cause I can finally get into all the fall fabrics I have gotten in) A BIG THANK YOU AGAIN TO ALL WHO SIGNED UP--I LEFT EVERYONE A COMMENT ON YOUR LAST POST SO BE SURE TO READ IT AS IT HAS A "SURPRISE" THERE FOR YOU!!!!!
A couple of you have asked for the "next" one--I am thinking about one--but haven;t totally put it all together just yet????
Here is another finish for me:
the 6 stockings from Bareroots pattern are all done--they were a finish for yesterday--they were so neat to embroider.
Yesterday I happened to be in the "neighborhood" of my local quilt shop--and this is what "followed" me home--
I am really getting in "sheep" right now and I found this pattern and it was "love" at first sight!!
and then I seen this one in the same book:
A great fall narrow wall hanging and not alot of work--plus there is a couple more patterns in the same book--so purchased it and "YES" some more fabric----stop "shaking your heads--what;s money for it not to spend on your hobby??" got the book home and started really reading it and I was so surprised to see who had written the book????????
It is done by the gals at Joined at the Hip--I had just gotten their other one the last time I was in the shop!!!
Today I worked on another set of the Santa placemats--this set I am using one of the Peppermint cottage prints by Diane Knott's--hopefully I will get them done tomorrow and I am starting to work on a paper piecing lap size Christmas quilt--will see how tomorrow goes????
Take care and see ya soon--keep stitching--Christmas will be here before you know it!!!!
Hugs, just, Di
