Design Wall Monday 12-15-2014

Busy week but not much to show for it.  I quilted several tops on Ruthie for other folks and didn't take pictures.  But here are a few things I have been working on. 
The grands are getting new shirts for Christmas.  This cute penguin is for Natalie. Sophia gets the polar bear.  I haven't started Ellie's yet.  That will be done today. 

I've also been slowly getting the binding done on my Carolina Christmas.  I'm about a third of the way done.  But probably won't get back to it for a few more days. 

Did you hear about the kerfuffle with Clover Wonder Clips?  Evidently someone is actually making counterfeit clips and selling them as the real thing. Check out this link for more information The information is in a box about half way down.  Or save time and just click on this one:  It shows the real packaging and the counterfeit packaging along with what is different between the two, especially how to tell if the clips are real.  Why would someone counterfeit sewing supplies?  Why not just make your own version with some changes.  The reports I've read have said the fake clips catch on fabric, break easily and don't hold as well.  Amazon sells the real ones but some of their vendors have the counterfeit ones.  I use my clips all the time for lots of different things. I'm glad I've had mine for over a year before all of this started.  

Enough of that unpleasantness.  Here's how I did on my goals last week.
