We are suppose to make 12 of these plates--
and I think I could get the 12 or most of them out of the layer cake--
only -- every plate would look pretty much the same, as I discovered that there is only about 23 prints in the cake that are different, and if you need 20 fans for each plate--well--they will all look pretty much the same!!!
So I did go through my 30's prints and came up with about 13 fabric prints that should blend in nicely--and then I will have variety --
I also did some sewing on the fans today--stitched and stitched,
then cut them apart, and turned the points and pressed--
and when I got done I only had enough stitched for about 4 plates---
so 'who' I ask again got me into this??????
I did manage to get another bom somewhat finished up today--
From Shabby Fabrics for January--
And I took a quick trip to Walmart this afternoon--
went though what is left of Christmas and found a treasure--
the cupcake papers on the left--
so then had to go check out what they had in for Valentines day--
and those are on the right side--
and see there is even some 'pink' ones in there!!!!
Now--here comes the 'problem'--
I do not 'need' these!!!!
but I seen someone on here that collects these and has them in a pretty display jar--
and not wanting to be 'left' behind, I 'must' also do my part and collect some!!!!
Now for this--
I have signed up to do the TUSAL which is for Totally Useless sal--
and we have to put our threads in a jar and show them 'off' every new moon--
and that is today--so here goes--
flattened, for more to add next month--
now this is just the counted cross stitch threads--
So I think it shows that I was up to 'something' this month!!!

Ahhh--Di what is with the Santa Claus's?????
Reminder--that tomorrow is the 24th, and we start our '3' days of Christmas sewing--
and remember you can make gifts during this time--and you do not have to use Christmas fabric--
they just need to be gifts for giving at Christmas time--in fact I think this is what I may be working on --so get those totes out that you did up and your idea pads that you wrote those ideas for gifts on or decorations on and get busy!!!!!
Hugs, and happy stitching--Di and her fur ball--that Miss Gracie
