Monday Meanderings 12 - 23 - 2019

It's the last post before Christmas. Most of the gifts I planned to make are done or a few stitches from being done.  I wish I could share some of them now but, I'm holding off for later.  

But I did actually sew one quilt block.  It was easy; it should look familiar; it was the last one I needed for a quilt I'll work on later.  (I plan to quilt one or possibly two tops after the holiday but probably not this one.) This block is replacing one that looked too pale compared to the others. 
A mid all the projects I was working on for my grands I did do a favor for a friend.  She wanted names of her great grands (I think they were G grands!) put on fleece blankets she was making.  I was a bit hesitant as I've never done anything on the thickness of her fleece.  It was really soft and wonderful.  I put a tear away stabilizer on the magnetic hoop and then popped the magnets on the fabric and the stablilizer and let the embroidery machine do its thing.  Easy peasy.  She'll be serging the edges to finish them. 

How are you doing on getting your holiday projects done? Next up is wrapping presents. Pat's been really helpful and has wrapped many of them.  I still need a quick trip to the store -- I'm hoping I can find what I need to finish a little project. But now, it's time to get back to work! 

I'm linking to Oh Scrap, Monday Making, and Design Wall Monday. I'm planning to do a little surfing between activities before and after Christmas.  It's a great way to relax.  And, who knows maybe I'll find a fabulous idea to try! 

Happy Quilting All!  Bonnie 


  1. A happy block! I'm sure you were relieved that the embroidery turned out well. All holiday prep is well in hand here. Merry Christmas to all the Stapletons!

  2. The embroidery looks great: I know your friend appreciated it. Merry Christmas

  3. We don't exchange holiday gifts which makes my Christmas stress-free :-) Wishing you and yours a holly jolly Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  4. Jazz Cats! What a fun block, I love it! :)

  5. Your replacement block turned out SEW cute! It looks like the embroidered names turned out beautifully. Nice work!

  6. Sounds like you had a great run up to the holiday.


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