What a nice weekend I had! It was so laid back, and happy! I got a lot of sewing done. Before I shaved off part of a finger, anyway. I think Hubby is just about ready to ban my use of rotary cutters! But that would mean HE would have to cut out all my quilt pieces, since there's no way I'd give up quilting. So we just keep the bandages and Neosporin in stock and go from there :)
I worked most of the weekend on this....
It's a new Christmas tree skirt! Well, this is 1/3 of one, anyway... I am SO happy with it! It's made with plain strip sets and the 10 degree wedge ruler from Phillips Fiber Art. It's amazingly simple, really. The only "issue" is that the edges of the wedges are completely on the bias, so they need to be handled very gently. I have all the rest of the wedges cut out and sewn into pairs, so it should only take a couple hours to finish the top. Then I need to do the hard part (for me, anyway...) quilt it! I think I'm going to have to pin this one and do it on my regular machine. It would be difficult to quilt it the way I want to on my frame.
Some other things...
I took the leftovers from my "Pie Crust Pile Up" quilt and made a mini! I just love this little quiltie :) I am still deciding how I want to quilt it.
And, the grocery bags in action!!
I got so many compliments on these bags... people were definitely looking! They certainly are a lot brighter and happier than those drab "green" bags most grocery stores carry. Many people asked me where I got them... it was fun to see the look of surprise when I said I had made them. I guess there are a lot of people out there who don't craft and create things.
Those poor people... I really feel sorry for them!
