First off I finished the pillows I'm making my sister for her birthday. They match the quilt I'm making her for Christmas.
Fresh from the dryer (it took FOREVER ironing these things to get them flat and perfect again)
I then hand quilted using pearle cotton in 4 colors (dark blue, medium blue, light blue, and teal) around each leaf
and around the border of the pillow in two colors (teal and light green)I also machine appliqued 7 of the blocks for her Christmas quilt, only 9 more to go!
I also made one Christmas ornament, but I don't have a picture yet. I'm holding off until I have more to photograph. I bought supplies to make Christmas cards at the Scrapbook Expo I went to on Friday in Ontario.
And I made two more blocks for my 12 Days of Christmas Sampler quilt
I changed up my list a bit and am now only making 5 sewing kits, but am adding a tulle-fringed apron to the list for my aunt.
I also realized that I'm seeing my friend this Friday who just had her 5th baby and didn't have a present. I used a Cape Ann charm pack and Elizabeth Hartman's Charm Squares Baby Quilt pattern and whipped up this quilt top yesterday.
(please forgive the horrible, horrible lighting)I'm planning on basting, quilting, and binding it today.... and on watching Battlestar Galactica (LOVE that Battlestar Galactica)
I've also been participating in Anna of Noodlehead's Simplicity Skirt 2226 Sew-A-Long and will finish up my skirt this week.
