And a few more finishes this week. I've really been keeping my nose to the grindstone, and trying to wrap a few things up. First, this fabulous scarf. My son bought me the loveliest yarn for Christmas. I took a "before" picture of it, but that camera disappeared. So, here is the "after" picture. It is soft and lovely and I used up most of the yarn. Yea, no leftovers!
Then, there is this tree skirt. I know it isn't Christmas anymore, but, hey, I am ready 11 months early for next Christmas *wink*. I figured it out without a pattern, but used a tree skirt I made before out of wider fabric for inspiration. I am especially proud of the quilting in the border.
Then, I also finished my Calendar Cover. This is the fourth one I've made (one each year). I usually make it during Christmas break, but I think all I did during Christmas break was bake and clean up the kitchen. So, I made it last week. It only takes about an hour or so, and I make it different each time. I think some friends want to learn how to do it, so we'll be making more. I also want to make a cover for my Relief Society manual when I get it.
I also did a lot of cleaning, oiling cabinets and such. This week there is something every day to be done, so I won't get as much accomplished, I'm sure. However, I will keep plugging away and see what I can come up with.
Works in Progress:
Whoopsy Daisy quilt: is basted and ready to be quilted. Just gotta do it.
Itty Bitty Pinwheels: quilt for a last-minute class on Thursday. This time in red and white.
More Hot Pads: I bought 7 skeins of yarn today for hot pads. This should keep me in business for 2 months.
Cutting up Scraps: my scrap basket is overflowing and needs to be cut into 5" and 2 1/2" squares. Then they can be ready for another project.
There is always plenty to do, and this is helping me stay focused and not jump around too much. Next week I really need to start my Challenge quilt top.
