DecemberisComing ~ So glad to have you join us. You have some wonderful heirlooms there. You are reminding me of a few things I have from my mother and DH's mother that I would like to finish into keepsakes. Yes, we do love to see pictures here!

I think I have the quilt block ready to mount onto the spare tire cover. DH will put the tire cover on the tire today so that I can see how it's going to look before I sew it on.

She will hold a little package in one hand - done but not in photo and either a piece of fruit or a pommander in the other...still working on that...

Have done a little work on felt sloth with baby ornament too...

AJ, beautiful work!!!

Jody, I love Raggedy Ann, GREAT work.

I finally got the stuff to wrap my CIJ ornaments. If it works. Also got stuff to make Teigan 4 dresses and a shirt. 1 dress and shirt will just be side seams and straps the material is smocked and then got 3 t-shirts and fabric for skirt bottoms. Got over 9 yards for the boas but will need more and they have to reorder. Teigan got a birdhouse kit to paint.

Fabric all in washer now.

Crafting this week hasn’t gone as planned. Found out the hard way that on the last 22 squares needed for the quilt top that are made in quarters 18 of the quarters need to be totally taken apart and redone.
The first sleeve I knitted and had to take back 6 inches because of a mistake finally got done but not before making the same mistake again not once but twice. Thankfully noticed only after a few rows. After making the same error twice on the sweater I figured it was time to step away from crafting for a day or two.

Mum and I had a great day yesterday. Made 10 fabric bags to pack charity gifts in for delivery at Christmas.
I hemmed some curtains for the farm and we did a bit more planning for upcoming crafts. We really need to get to the craft store and purchase some wool and some more flannel and a few other things.

I did get to sew the fabric manager and stable I had cut out for many a years. Another UFO done today. I found a Christmas count down calendar that is going to be tedious trying to decide if i really want to finish it or not. I don't have anyone to give it to presently so will think on it. I do have Christmas Stockings to cutout that I believe will be the next item on the agenda.

I got Teigans dress made. She said she will wear it today. Will see. When younger and I made a few things for her to wear she would say so pretty and show people that I made it and say don't wear.

Also put a finishing touch on some ornaments and they are ready to package.

Rose, sorry about the redo :(

Thank you for the welcome Rose, I have had crafting weeks like that and it is frustrating. Hang in there!

Greetings!

I did finish the quilt block embellishment for the spare tire cover. It turned out great.

I nearly took the shamrock ornaments off the design wall to sew the two sides together while I had the right thread in the sewing machine, but didn't actually do it. Wish "it's the thought that counts" would work in those situations. Haha

I would like to embellish a tank top for the 4th of July. We will be at the lake, and it would be fun to have something special to wear. I think I will just use one of my old white tank tops to try it on. I don't want to go out to try to purchase something new right now, and it's too late to order something at this point.

I took the plunge this week and when into Lensmill store. grabbed some batting. I had some gift cards and you can only use them in the store but not for curb pickup. The quilt blocks are still waiting to be fixed.

After work this afternoon I made a lady 3 of the door latches. I had made her a couple for her baby shower with her first baby and the 2nd one now is over a year and she texted to see if I would make her a few more. I use the ponytail holders and one goes over each door knob and the material with padding holds the thing in so no noise with door and also a child gets in they can't lock the door. If by chance they do you pull on the material and it opens.

Door Silencer for babies.
