The weekend was busy. There was a call out for pillow cases and sharks/dolls for the children of Newtown, CT who were in the school at the time of the shootings and the surviving siblings of those who died. So, sew I did.
Also spent a few minutes working on two blocks for a fellow quilter who's new grandson was born very premature and she had not had time to make a quilt. A few of us sent her blocks to give her a head start.
I worked on the Block Party for January, but I can't show those blocks just yet. Part of the surprise!!
Christmas Eve morning found me sitting at the table with Pinterest up and making candy sleighs.
And that wasn't all, but has been fun!! Now to finish and post Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street Part 5.
I have been busy. Here are a few shots of Christmas presents and decorations that have occupied a good bit of my sewing time.
A music themed quilt for Betty's nephew.
A tall, skinny Santa - made with pieces no bigger than 1-3/8" square and some smaller. This tested my patience.
A couple of quilt retreats.
32 Cuddle/Minkie Infinitiy Scarves ready for Christmas gifting..... I also made 11 crocheted Infinity Scarves, but I managed to sell them before I could get a picture.
I have taken several classes and have learned a lot of new techniques as well. Been an interesting few months.
Step 4 - More Flying Geese this time with Turquoise and Purple - only 64 this time. Then you sewed the Purple and Black on White to the Purple and Turquoise. Okay - back to at least 3.5" squares finally. Next cutting assignment is 145 -3.5" squares from limey green (now I am concerned - not my favorite color).
