Hey, I am back, not sure for how long. Sorry I have not posted since Thanksgiving. After get my sewing room back from all the things I threw in it doing the Thanksgiving dinner, I have been to busy to blog, working the 9 to 5, going on religious retreat, meetings and choir rehearsals. I have a break tonight, I have sew my last button and last coin purse frame to things that I have been working on night and day, even taken things to work to sew by hand.
During all this, good old Tom come in with a project from a friend that works with Artistic children. The glue fabric on felt and since they are not stable, I took the pieces and sewed decorative stitches and then put it together for a quilt.
Sorry the pictures are not clear, put don’t you thing the backing is great with the monkeys hanging in the trees. There were four blocks that I sewed together, you can not see the decorative stitches and found this great monkey fabric for the backing.
As I said earlier, have been making more coin purses and here they are.
Yes, I have made eight more and need to get to work on another seven. See my Red Skin purse, love it. I
I get my frames from Jo-Ann’s, for only $4.95 on sale this week for $3.95. I have hit most of the Jo-Ann;s in my area and only could find two. One of my quilt buddies has two that she is giving me tomorrow, and as I was looking through one of the bends that I put my stuff in during Thanksgiving clean up, I found another 4 more frames, YAH!! So I will get started on them later tonight.
Last put not least, here is a puzzle for you. Below is scrapes from my latest two projects. These are gifts for two of my running buddies, which I will reveal to you tomorrow night. My New Members Ministry will be having our Christmas luncheon which I invited them to come. This little project did not take too much time to make, put with me working it took be two days each.
Well, it is only 10:00 p.m and my favorite T.V. show just went off “Person of Interest” and “Elementary” is about to come on. I still have time to go down and pick out fabric for my next 7 or 8 coin purses.
I am not ready for Christmas, are you?
