I missed 2 weeks while I had company...so sorry but there was no time for much except cooking and washing dishes just to keep up with those boys! LOL! I certainly had a great visit with them and my daughter. Lots of laughter for sure! But now I'm welcoming some creating time.
I did work on my giant granny square but you've see it enough. Let me just say I am nearing the end as I am measuring against the last one I made. I did finish the one washcloth but forgot to take a picture. I also forgot to photograph the last Halloween ornament I finished. I did get my doll and beading needles in the mail. Unfortunately, the beading needles are just pieces of wire....not sure why they call them needles. Here is the ornament I am working on now..........
I thought I would have a finish for you today as I was planning on finishing up my mini-quilt but I couldn't find my rotary cutter. I ended up ordering a new one with extra blades and I ordered some plastic baskets to start sorting my fabric scraps like Lori Holt does. She has a You Tube video where she shows you. She is very organized and that is what I am trying to be. I also ordered her Farm Girl Vintage quilt book.
Here is my little quilt that did not get finished....yet.
I've been reading Lori Holt's blog archives and buying a few things to add to my quilt knowledge and my stash............this is a Moda All-Stars book by multiple designers and all the projects use 1, 2, or 3 Charm packs. I have lots of Charm Packs so this will be wonderful!
I also bought some more charm packs....red must be the color for me this month............
Oh, I almost forgot to show you the Fox Scarf that I finished and that my daughter loved! There's a tab under the fox's nose that allows you to slip the tail in so it stays around your neck.
I watch Celeste Creates podcast and she is having a QAL (quilt along) which I have joined and you can too! It's for beginners and she just gave out the material list. I ordered material but not for the backing yet. I'm excited and definitely have the quilting bug! I can't do any one thing for very long as Arthur(itis) gets irritated so it's good that I have a variety of projects.
Today, I am finalizing the Christmas Project/Gift List and ordering materials for them.....at least some of the materials. I'll keep you informed along with my YOP project goals.
I missed you all and hope to catch up and see what you all have been making and creating!
