Now for a back and a binding.

Off to the Post Office





This little scarf was a commission and is off to Richmond Hill this afternoon via Canada Post. I hope it's a smooth trip! And even more, I hope it's a happily received gift!

Christmas Bits

The countdown is on - Friday is the opening of HP and the Deathly Hollows, Sunday is the Holiday hop. In preparation for both I have been listening to HP on iTunes, while I cut, press and sew!

Yesterday I finally got inspired to use the Christmas fabrics and put 10 sets of coasters, 4 square table mats and one small, scrappy table mat.







More to come!

A Long Term Project

Several months ago I posted about leaders and enders. An invaluable lesson from GR, she also inspired me to make my own postage stamp quilt.

Below are 2 completed 10" x 10" blocks (that's 100 1.5" squares per block!), just a start of what I am sure will be a quilt several years in the making.


Up close...


... and personal.


2 complete blocks.

In theory there are no fabrics repeated within the blocks. Keep checking back for progress reports!

A Productive Weekend


Pillows




Scarves




Binding is done, just deciding on some embellishments.

It was a productive weekend and I got a number of scarves finished for the upcoming sale.










Thanks to the mothership for modeling for me!

Christmas Stock + Some Stash Finds


Some tree decorations for my upcoming Christmas sale. I still have a lot of buttons and ribbons to hand sew to finish off the rest.


A festive table runner.


I finally finished this crib/lap quilt with Tweet Tweet fabric by Keiki.


Another scarf with some of my stash from St. Louis.


These were some vintage finds from a trip to Value Village on Sunday. I'm quite excited to get sewing with some of this stuff!
