I finished a few little projects right before the Christmas break and the breaking of my right hand…ouch!
|organic quilting lines|
The festive llama block received a border of Kate Spain Twelve Days of Christmas fa la la strips and some straight line quilting with Aurifil 50wt #2021.
I used this tutorial and Sweetwater's Countdown to Christmas fabric to make an envelope style backing for the pillow cover.
|no picture of finished stocking|
Leo needed a stocking for Montana so I whipped up a quick stocking using fabric from my Christmas stash (don't know what it is though). I traced Leo's daddy's stocking and followed this tutorial. I am hoping I took at least one picture of the completed stocking before coming to Montana (left memory card at home so not sure) because all the photos I took with my cell phone over Christmas were lost when my phone … ahem… fell in a bucket of water yesterday.
I also finished the fabric chalkboard placemat for Leo. I took pictures along the way, but alas they are on my memory card at home.
|chalkboard fabric side|
I laminated a 13x18 piece of Ann Kelle Super Kids fabric and placed it wrong side to wrong side with the same size of chalkboard fabric. Holes do not go away with chalkboard fabric so no pinning or ripping is possible.
I used Clover clips to hold the two pieces of fabric together along with the Lollipops Designer Bindings pre made binding strips I found in my studio. Doesn't that polka dot match perfectly with the super kids fabric?
I used this tutorial found on Pinterest adjusting the dimensions somewhat to fit the featherweight.
Hmmm… is that considered regifting?
Thankfully I was able to travel and spend Christmas with my husband, children and grandson despite my broken arm. Leo and his parents flew back home yesterday, and the rest of us are just hanging out and relaxing before the new year begins.
Wishing you and yours a happy and safe new year!
