Productive day

The scrapbooking store does the craft nights & days, but we haven't been able to come since October because of our busy schedule.  But I was able to finally, and I got A LOT done!  12 hours of uninterrupted sewing, you bet I got a lot done!

Christmas ornaments, I just need to add buttons to the middle

Christmas themed Coasters.  I had a fat quarter of christmas prints, and decided this would be a good use for them.

And a bunch more microwave cozies.  I found I can make 6 microwave cozies with one bobbin on my featherweight.

And this wasn't even everything.  These are just the things I can share ;)

Circle of squares


Pinwheels and solids

Wonky churn dash

I asked for sisters choice block, I will have to find the blocks and lay them all out, it's kind of been put on the back burner because I don't know what to do with the sashing.

Sewing weekend

My best friend & I have known each other since we were 4.  In high school we both took sewing, and were bit by the bug.  In high school we used to get together at one of our houses and have sewing parties.  Even in college we would get together and sew.  

It's been a little more difficult since we've "grown up" and moved apart.  But we have still made time to sew together.  We visit her at Thanksgiving, and quite a bit of that weekend usually involves sewing.

Well that weekend wasn't enough for us.  So I started going to visit her during my fall break.  I got a lot done this year!

This was something I started to use up some of my 2.5" squares.  I saw a quilt like this on facebook and ran with it.  It went together fairly easy. The inside blocks were 4.5"x 8.5".

We stayed in a hotel room, which was nice for laying things out.  Here is her Allitare quilt by Bonnie Hunter.  And my scrappy rail fence.

I also started this quilt.  I got the heart all pieced, and now I need to finish the other rows.

She finished this Christmas top.  I love how it looks and how quickly it went together!

I also made some microwave bowls for an upcoming craft fair.  They sold pretty well at the first craft fair I had them at.  The black one is the "standard" size I have been making.  The white one below it was actually an accident.  I cut the batting too big, so I just used a larger piece of fabric, and voila! a bigger size, which is something people asked for.

Nightmare before Christmas

I made one of my good friends a quilt about 7 years ago. But her husband stole it from her (how dare he!) she even made him a quilt, but she was still quilt-less.  She likes nightmare before Christmas, so I made her this quilt.

Round Robin 2017

Some of the ladies I did the round robin with last year decided we would do it again this year, there were only 3 of us, but it was fun. 

I added the flying geese to this one to kind of look like trees to match the camping fabric.

I wanted a way to pull out the colors that were in her bear claw block

And here is what I received back! I don't know what I am going to do next to add to it.
