We had a great time on Thanksgiving. It was wonderful to be inside, chatting and eating with the family. The grands had a blast playing with each other. Now it's full steam ahead for Christmas. I've already purchased (or made) quite a few Christmas presents so I feel ahead of the game.
I still plan to make quilting progress even if Christmas prep take up some time. Let's look at last week's goals.
✅Make doll dress -- finished and given to Ellie
✅Trim and bind Dino quilt -- done!
Quilt small quilt of mine -- started, but I didn't like the design or thread I chose so I'm starting over on it.
✅Keep making string blocks -- another 6 or so are done
✅Embroider last t shirt for the grands -- done and given away.
Finish clearing off right side of design wall -- didn't touch it!
I'm repeating some items and adding a couple new ones for this week's goals.
Quilt and Bind small quilt of mine
Clear off design wall
Finish blocks for Ombre log cabin
Start new quilt
Keep making string blocks
Here are the last two Christmas shirts for the grands.This design is part of the Elegant Christmas 1 set from Designs by Juju. There is a great sale on until Wed, 12/1 if you are looking for some new machine embroidery designs.
This design is called Naughty and They Gnome It by Urban Threads. Another good sale is going on -- 60% off site wide until Tuesday, 11/30. This looks like a dense design but it really isn't.
In case you are wondering, no, I don't get anything from sharing these sites. I just like the designs I chose and wanted you to know where to find them in case you want to use them too!
We didn't celebrate two of our grand's birthdays when they happened. So we brought our gifts over Thanksgiving day. Here's the dress and purse I made for Ellie's AG doll. I used the same fabric as the dress I made for Ellie this summer.I'm pretty sure her favorite present was the doll table and chairs Pat made for her. (hum, she's wearing her Christmas t shirt too.)
Hopefully next week I'll have some more quilty things to share. I've finished a quilt or two that I haven't shown yet since I've been skipping my normal weekend post.
I'm linking up with my favorite early week linky parties.
