Monday Meandering 12 - 9 - 2019

Lots of sewing this past week and quite a bit of singing or listening to music.  This week is concert week.  Here's a preview of my music schedule: 

Monday:  Rehearsal for Spotsylvanians
Tuesday:  no formal practice but I'll be listening to several recordings of songs we're singing
Wednesday: dress rehearsal for Heritage Singers
Thursday: concert for Heritage Singers
Friday: dress rehearsal for Spotsylvanians
Saturday: concert for Spotsylvanians
Sunday: concert for Spotsylvanians

Luckily, I still have sewing time cause I'm going to need it to finish my projects.

I didn't take any photos this week.  Heck, everything I am working on is for Christmas presents. So, there won't be many product pictures for a while. 

This week I am sharing photos from previous Christmas quilts I've made. First up is Christmas Favorites by Arts to Heart. I finished this in 2016 (or so.) But I won't tell you how many years it took me to complete! It hangs in our entry way every December. 

My next quilt is a Trip Around the World made during the summer of 2017 with Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict's 12 Days of Christmas in July. I really lucked out finding all of the fabric in my stash.  And, believe me, it felt great using all of those stash fabrics.  (Hum, maybe it's time to make another TAW.) I gave this to Aimee and Ellie for Christmas that year.  (Click on the link above if you want to make one for yourself.) 

That's it for me today.  My goals are staying the same -- finish all those secret projects.  I don't think I'll be making the skirt I had planned to do as we've been able to find some other Victorian clothing to use.  The skirt will be made sometime but not under the Christmas pressure time. 

I'm linking up with Oh Scrap, Monday Making, and Design Wall Monday.  Check them out to see what folks are up to. I don't know about you, but I always find at least one quilt or project that tells me to make one like it when I surf the web.  I'm holding off starting anything new though. 

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 


  1. "Christmas Favorites" is so cheerful and charming! Hope all your choral events go well this week.

  2. those quilts are pretty neat - I have one more Chrismasy looking quilt I want to make - maybe it will be done for next year?

  3. I wish I lived closer so I could enjoy one of your concerts. Our big choir program was yesterday. A couple more Sundays and we get the month of January off (another advantage of living in a retirement community)!

  4. Your TAW looks fabulous!!! Wishing you good luck - may you slay all your goals.

  5. I remember the TATW! Such a great pattern. And the Arts to Heart one is super cute! Best of luck with your concerts; I don't miss all the rehearsals crammed in this time of year, but I do miss the singing itself.

  6. Christmas Favorites is SEW darling, Bonnie! Your Trip quilt reminds me that I really want to make one of these. One of these days!

  7. Bonnie, I love that Christmas quilt pattern. So sweet!


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
