    Default WiP Dec 1 - 6, 2018

    The holiday crafting madness is in full swing around here. I'm doing small things (doll clothes, toy) for both the grandkids, and a knitting afghan for my daughter-in-law's mom (who has become a friend).

    I also have a piece of needlework to frame for the DIL and need to buy some puzzles, books and clothes for the kids and a dehydrator for my son (he's got a bunch of venison in the freezer that really needs to be made into jerky soon.)

    Quilt guild got cancelled due to our BLIZZARD earlier this week. The interstate highway was closed just west of Topeka! It's not unusual for it to be closed in western KS and eastern CO, but on this end of the state, pretty rare to have that much snow and it blowing that hard. It's actually a good thing, since I didn't get the block for the outgoing president done yet and it was due then!

    I need to get that done first thing tomorrow. Then it's back to packing and Christmas prep. Cookies. There will be cookies.

    How are things coming along in your part of the world? Holiday prep set in yet?

    Happy to have a few things done and not enough sewing going on right now. I bought a gold/cream/gray panel with Christmas "pictures" on it, trees, snowflakes, etc and now I don't know what I had in mind, bummer
    I got these dolls done, I thought they looked just like my grands.Click image for larger version.

    The Christmas tree is up and I have cooked 18 pounds of German sweet potato salad.

    I am working on a kit called Water Lily Park using Northcott Water garden fabric. I decided I needed to turn up the volume and have spend hours trying to get the fabric to play together nicely. I finally found a configuration I like. I just need to add the nine patches in the empty gaps.

    Woo Hoo! First WIP post in like 4 years!!!

    Finally getting back in the swing of things and decided on starting off with a simple, small project to get the quilting mojo back up and flowing. Working this weekend on what will be a wall hanging for my craft room. Pulled a FQ bundle from Joanns out of my stash and it’s going to look great when all finished.

    I started big stitch quilting on the lime green stacked coin quilt today! I really liking the way it looks so far. Also need to put binding on a hand full of mug rugs for small gifts for our quilting group. Last weekend I finished a tablerunner for a secret pal gift........that I could have & should have finished earlier this year.

    I got 2 of my UFO Christmas quilts finished wahoo!!! Tonight I started participating in a televised all night quiltathon in aid of a mental health charity but gave up after about 3 hours. Too tired and I have church in the morning, it will finish at 9am UK time. You could either buy the quilt kitcand so much goes to the charity or you could download the pattern to use your own fabric and make a donation. I chose my own fabric. It will make a small lap quilt which I'll pass along to the Linus project.

    So the coming week I'll finish the quilt in between making Christmas decorations. So loving this retirement!!

    Hope you all have a good week. Best wishes for those in need.

    So far, I have cleaned up and put away the fabrics, books and patterns that I got this week. Postal service is no longer on strike, so I got 3 packages. Feels like xmas.

    I attached the binding on the King xmas quilt, and have started sewing it over by hand. It should be finished this week.

    I finished adding the borders on a VictorIa quilt. I will quilt it after the holidays. Today, I made 2 pillowshams for my GF to match the quilt I made her. I also made a pair of king pillowcases to go on our bed with xmas quilt. I also made 2 children fabric books for our newest grandsons, Cedrik and Michael.

    I am working on making 2 winter pillows, and other small gift projects. I am still attacking my 2018 list to finish. I am doing well.

    Monday afternoon, I go to our VictorIa quilt group. I usually start & finish a top, and bring it home to add the border.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Shh. Please don't tell Santa I am being naughty. My newest jelly roll arrived in the mail today, Sprout and Shout from Lily and Loom at Craftsy. it was just so happy and joyous on a gloomy winter day that I started my next quilt using the free Atlantis Rising pattern instead of cleaning my sewing room for three hours like I was supposed to. Just need to cut some solids for the outer rainbow.
