Wow! I haven’t written since Sunday! Hope you like the grainy blog header but I wanted something Christmassy and everything I have made I can’t post there yet! lol
It turned into quite a busy week and not much time for quilting really til yesterday… then I zipped through one side of the cozy
|here is the cozy Wednesday … not quite half done yet!|
I am working on for Fiona to sit on in the cabinet being fashioned for her by my honey for my Christmas present… Fiona was my Christmas present to me! lol
Here she is trying out her new case… the base if finished but the red oak we got hasn’t been stained yet… I chose a mahogany stain with a contrasting honey oak for the larger flat parts you don’t see there yet 🙂 Soooo excited about this!!!
Here is the cozy/rug this morning after some early morning stitching!
|Note the left side is marked but yet to be stitched… I better hurry! lol|
|Close up of stitches 🙂|
You can read more about how I designed this cozy for my tabletop machine here.
Meanwhile I patiently wait for the stencils to be delivered for my honey’s quilt. It is ready to be marked and sandwiched.. patiently waiting hanging neatly over some soft backed dining room chairs 🙂
And I did squeeze in some time sewing with my dd 🙂 She is the mastress of buttonholes on that Janome machine I don’t like but she LOVES! Yipee 🙂
So what is on your Christmas list… do you buy your own gifts??? Do you give of your time or money to help others less fortunate??? How do you celebrate for you??? Would love to hear!!!
