Brenda at http://pumpkinpatchprimitivequiltshoppe.blogspot.com/ is hosting a giveaway!! Head on over to her blog and leave her a comment! She is the sweetest person! Buy some of her fabric while you are there =)
I finished my tree skirt and took it into work today! Here is a pic
My boss Ruth had made this sample for the shop and I could NOT resist, so I made myself one up for the holidays. I just have to quilt it and it will be ready for Nov 1 when I change from fall to Christmas decor in the house =) The pattern is out of Cabin Fever book by Whimiscals and it’s their fabric too.
I am gearing up to make some little presents for Christmas. I am going to make the girls in the family a checkbook cover from this tutorial http://amatricis.wordpress.com/2008/01/19/prettier-checkbook-tutorial/ and little wallets from a pattern that I forgot to take a picture of ..duh. Oh well I am sure I will post pictures of the finished products and if you want the pattern name I can get it for you.
Here are some YUMMY Amy Butler fat 1/4’s I bought today to do some of the checkbook covers:
I am going to add little lables like the ones on this tutorial http://sewtakeahike.typepad.com/sewtakeahike/2008/08/label-tutorial.html so they always remember me slaving away at the sewing machine for them……insert dramatic sigh.
I am also thinking of doing little potholders for some girlie whirles and making up little baskets with wooden spoons and kitchen gadgets and homemade pot holders. I found a good potholder pattern in one of my Amy Butler books, In Stitches:
Look she signed it !! hehehehe
And lastly, I just couldn’t stop myself !!! while I was picking out the AB fat 1/4’s I saw this super cool halloween fabric. I know , I know…it’s time to move on from Halloween,it’s only 15 days away!!! but hey there will be another one next year right? And a girl has to be stocked up ! LOL
