Such a Productive Week Y’all!

I have been like I had roller skates on this week I have been constantly busy…

I made this darling bag with tassel to go along with the Christmas gift we are giving her… more released later but isn’t it precious for a 2 1/2 year old girl!!! I used a FREE pattern by Blue Calla patterns called “Sweet Pea Saddle Bag” from her website following THIS video tutorial series πŸ™‚

I wrote on the inner slip pocket… a message to sweet Ellie πŸ™‚

Rick put the charm on that tiny zipper head πŸ˜‰

I rolled that quilt yesterday morning! Now I just have a fairly quick path across hand quilting πŸ™‚ …

The blue star above represents halfway so next start up after surgery will be downhill then I am hoping!!!

I found this ufo when I was cleaning my sewing room up …. it is hand quilted and not quite finished here…

Well the neighbor I have the machine quilted bed runner … she and her hubby LOVED it … so I asked her if she needed a cushion or table topper out of this hand quilted piece if I finished it…. She sent me the below photo.

No cushion for the bed but she would love to have one that could be a wall hanging in their new cabin being built…

So today with Kathy and the gang of slow stitchers HERE <<<< I will be sewing down the binding by hand … I have already started it πŸ™‚ … and hand quilting some too! Click the link and see what everyone is up !

I started cutting and sewing units for this table runner….

It’s a Julie Cefalu pattern and she is so easy to follow!

These cute oven mitts got sent off to my friend in Florida for testing…

They are waiting in her mailbox last night delivered late in the day!!!!

My honey has taken on a new project… while I recover he will rehab our side deck!!!

You can see he has already removed some of the railing and stair treads when I was able to get this starting photo….

Here he is harvesting and turning to the back side as much deck lumber as possible!

Here is the harvested deck lumber waiting for a good pressure washing if mother nature doesn’t clean them enough ! lol

My left knee replacement surgery is due to be Wednesday and I won’t know what time til Tuesday afternoon. Molly is being boarded during my hospital time and Rick is able to be in the hospital with me the entire time. I am blessed.

I plan to type a message next Sunday but may not link to Kathy’s as I won’t have much to share I doubt… we shall see but rehab will be my focus and rest! Thanks for stopping by today!

    Hi Kathy, update of the house looks exciting, I look forward to the finish. Your hubs never ceases to amaze me. I’ve a reminder set for surgery day, I’ll be praying. I know all will go well & you’ll be fine. Beautiful detail in your recent sewing projects. Take care of you. πŸ’•Linda

    Will be praying on Wednesday! You were incredibly busy this week, and reminded me of two projects I want to put in my list of to do’s. I have been making progress, but trying to stay with the big stuff this week, so I can get some things finished up!

    Wishing all the best on Wednesday. I hope you are up and about and feeling pretty good by next weekend. I love that wall hanging that you are finishing. That little bag is adorable. Your latest table runner project has pretty fabrics. I am looking forward to watching you assemble it. You are quilting that pretty heart quilt very quickly. I hope you can easily continue after your surgery. Take care. Hugs.

    You (and your husband) have been on roller skates this week, if reading of all that you have both done is anything to go by. That is the sweetest little bag and love those bright and happy oven mitts. Love the sweet little charm Rick chose for the zipper. A lovely finish for the UFO. Hoping all goes well with your surgery this week and that your rehabilitation goes well, Kathi. Take care.

    hope all goes well with your surgery – update us when you can. Glad you will not have to be alone but I think I would send my husband home for the night LOL – he would be moaning and groaning so much sleeping in a chair it would drive me crazy!! The quilt looks great on the frame and the little purse is so cute
