I machine quilted and bound (with scrappy binding) one of my Fig & Plum table runners. I also made three fabric baskets and two little "This and That" bags from some of my Fig & Plum scraps. Nine potholders are sewn together and ready to be machine quilted. So I accomplished a little.
Here is a runner I can finally share with you...it was for my Mom for her birthday...and since she's such a big fan of black and white fabrics...I knew I couldn't post it until she'd received it! I was on the phone with her when she opened it, so that was fun!
Just a couple of Christmas decorations to share today. The first is a gorgeous Christmas pillow made for me by my Grandmother, probably about 15 years ago. The second is one of my earliest patchwork projects ever! It is a tree skirt I made for Christmas 1985; of course, I didn't use a rotary cutter, cutting everything out with scissors and a cardboard template. I clearly remember using the yarn ties to try to cover up the places where my corners didn't match!
One last accomplishment this weekend...my Secret Santa Swap gifts are finished, wrapped, and will be on their way to Australia today! Oh, and I'm still looking for one more person to make a Pay it Forward gift for (see my sidebar for my little group). I won't be send out those PIF gifts until after the holidays...but I'd really love one more person to sign up! Happy sewing, everyone!
