It was a good week for getting things done for me. You'll see by looking at my goals list. I didn't finish everything but I made superb progress.
First up -- last weeks goals.
Sew label on farm quilt✔️ See my post here.
Sew coping strips on all t shirts 2/3 done
Get grand kids ornaments done 2 out of 4 done
Here are some samples...
|First try. Oops the stabilizer didn't tear out like it should have.|
|Here are two finished (but I forgot the hangers...)And several more ready to be made.|
|And the back needed a date.|
(and back to the rest of the goals....)
Order some more presents✔️
Knit on a doll hat✔️
And this week it's more about finishing Christmas things. And, if I decide to go wild, I will play with one of the quilts currently waiting to be finished. I really need to finish a quilt or two this month!
Finish Christmas ornaments
Finish adding coping strips on t shirt quilt (I'm really hoping to have the top done except for the borders.)
Make scarf to go with doll hat
Write & mail Christmas cards
I'm hoping I will have some play time too.
And now, a Public Service Announcement!
While putting the date on the back of my Gingerbread Men I used a Frixon pen to draw a line on the back of the felt. On the first one it was a very small line. It came off completely when ironed. I kept marking the line on each of the felts I used. Unfortunately, the bright cinnamon felt must have been a different fiber content. You can see the lines on the picture below. The red Frixon left a light line. (Note to self, use a different pen and don't make the line too long!) I usually only use Frixon pens where any residual line wouldn't make a difference but obviously I totally forgot!And, now it's time for me to finish this up! But first, here are the linky parties. Give them a look and see what's going on around the internet. Oh Scrap!, Monday Making, Design Wall Monday, and on Tuesday -- To Do Tuesday. (I'll link up all the others after they post.)
By the way, do you realize it is only 14 days til Christmas. WHAAATTTTT?
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
