So here are a few things that I've started on and either finished or getting ready to finish...
This is a pillow case I made for my daughter. She collects pigs. About two or maybe even three years ago my friend, Sharon, and I were at a fabric store in Bettsville, Ohio called the Door Mouse and I found this fabric so I just had to buy it to make a pillow case for my daughter. I finished it in about 1 1/2 hours.
Also about two years ago I saw this panel in a Nancy's Notion's catalog. It came as a wall hanging kit so I bought it. When it came I looked at it and thought "how pretty!" and then put it away. When I cleaned/organized my craft room I found it. When I put things away I put all the projects that I've bought fabric for or kits that I've bought on the top shelf in my pantry in my craft room. The other day I was tired of working on my cross stitch so I pulled this out and had the top sewn together in about two hours. The next day I started marking it for quilting and finished the marking the day after that. Then it sat in my craft room for a couple of days until Saturday when I pinned it together and brought it out to the living room to quilt. The bad news is that when I ordered it and when it came in I thought it was pretty - now I feel it's just "okay" - I'm not crazy about it but I don't dislike it either! I plan to hang it in the kitchen. However, the Small Quilt Talk group I belong to issued the February small quilt challenge which is a spool with a heart in it. So, I went to my pantry and started picking out fabric to make this challenge with the thought that if it goes together quickly I'll make one for my daughter and one for myself...we'll see...
So, no cross stitch has been done, no quilting has been done but the fabric for the quilt challenge has been ironed. Maybe I'll get back in the groove tomorrow!
If you live in a cold climate - stay warm, stay calm, eat chocolate - spring is only 6 weeks away! If you're living in a warmer climate... I'm jealous! LOL!
Thanks for stopping by!
