Weekend ReportMonday, December 10, 2012
I had a very productive weekend. My goal was to finish the 3 quilt tops I've been working on. Well, 2/3 ain't bad, right? In my defense, I ran out of fabric for one of them and I've been waiting for it to come in the mail. I was expecting it Fri-Sat. but it didn't come, so for sure today. Right?
This is one of the quilt tops I finished, Vintage Christmas. My daughter said it looks like the Phillies and Eagles Christmas. She's right. I love it even more now. Speaking of Eagles....the terrible losing streak was broken Sunday. At least for now. Not a great football year for us. Go Eagles. Anyway I really like how my blocks worked out. I had them all in order to sew into the sashing but somehow the order got mixed up while sewing. It doesn't much matter, I think.
Friday, Lori Holt and I had our Christmas lunch at Food for Thought in Draper. It was fun as always. Lori and I always exchange gifts. And of course she trumped me. Her packaging is always fun and fresh.
Lori gets gifts right. The pink depression candy dish is super cute. A girl always needs a little candy in the work room. She filled it with special Christmas M&Ms (minty!) and included a hand made candy cane and a very cute gift tag that I will hang on my tree and then after Christmas hang in my sewing room. Not pictured is the pattern Lori gave me for her stitching kit. You can see it here. I plan on making mine this summer and have some plans for it. Thanks so much Lori. Love it all.
My gift is a little out of focus but I got Lori a pretty collapsible step stool with a fabric macaroon tied to it. A fun gift, I think.
My most major accomplishment this weekend wasn't even the 2 quilt tops and backs I completed. It was cleaning my sewing room. I love a clean room with everything put in its place. I had some time left over to cut out my mittens for the latest row in Lori's row-a-long here. I really love this project and I'm happy when the new row comes out every other Wednesday. I always look forward to it.
Hope for a happy sewing week.
