And how are all my little Christmas elf's doing tonight????
I do say I am so glad that 'my' boss came up with idea of doing some Christmas work a couple days each month--Thanks Miss Gracie--!!!!!!
I was able to work on a couple projects today that have been waiting in the wings for --
for along time--years even--
Here is the first one--
an appliqued Scotty dog--
I have had this pattern for 3-4 years and these two fabrics tucked into the pattern since then--
and in thinking about where to start on the Christmas stuff--I decided that this month I wanted to work on some gifts that I have wanted to make every year for along time--
I even have the Scotty done--and now the background fabric that was left can go back into the Christmas fabric box for another project!!!
this pattern also has 2 other designs in it--
this one--can you tell what this one will be????
and this one--both of these are ready to be appliqued now--
and then I have had this next one for 2-3 years--
and it is finally traced off and the extra fabric is now back into the Christmas fabric bin--
this one I did change one word on the saying on the bottom of it to say 'winter' instead of
Christmas--so now I also realized that left me an opening to use other colors on the little quilt blocks hanging from the tree instead of red and green--soooooo!!!!
This was today work--
I only got in a half of day because remember it was a Tuesday and my friend Anne comes to quilt--
while she was here I was able to get two more blocks on the pink quilt - hand quilted--
and this one--
there is a pink tulip block above this yellow one and it is next to do!!!!
And I have my Christmas sewing project for tomorrow all planned--
if I can find the pattern????????
I think though that these '3' days of Christmas are going to go really fast--
so be ware if you see some 'smoke' coming from my direction--
I want so much to get some things done!!!!!
I was wondering if we should bake some Christmas cookies to eat while we stitch?????
Hugs, Di and that boss of mine--
Happy Christmas sewing!!!
