Thanks so much for all of the wonderful comments on my Sew, Mama Sew giveaway post–465 comments in all! I really enjoyed reading about so many wonderful handmade gifts; however, it just wasn’t possible for me to get out many responses. I used the random number generator for this one…as I usually do…and the winner of the pincushion and friendship bag is Lexiloo…e-mail me with your mailing info., and I’ll send it out right away! Now on to my December goals for The Charming Girls’ Quilt Club. I haven’t finished my goals for two months now…(although I did have lots of other starts and finishes). So…first up is to start a quilt with the Sandi Henderson Meadowsweet fabrics in the first picture–I love these fabrics. I think I know what I’m going to make…if I can get this one cut out that will be good!
Finally, I had to share my Saturday project…and boy was this a project! I’ve had this quilt finished for quite a while and have been wanting to hang it up (sorry for the poor photo…it’s really cloudy here today)! I decided if Carrie could put up a quilt on a Pottery Barn rod by herself, then I could. My experience was very much like hers…blogged about here (up and down the ladder with a trusty screwdriver…at least 15 times)! Now I know why the directions recommend two people install this rod. I decided to do this while the rest of the family was out…and so two hours and one very sore wrist and arm later…I was finally successful. Hoping to get a lot of sewing done this week…and hopefully lots of things checked off the list! Have a wonderful day!
