    Morning Friends!

    Got the batting yesterday for the microwave bowl cozies, and blanket for 18" doll. Also a canvas for Teigan to do mommy a picture. I am thinking peguin from her feet.

    Will paint snowman face today and clean while drying. Would like to finish the sewing ornaments today too.

    Might try to fit the doctor in but really don't have time!!!!!!!!!!!! Laundry to do.

    What are your plans this week?

    The blanket I got a pretty piece so will leave it whole and just quilt it diagonal. Will go fast. Can sew binding at work at lunch.

    Lana ~ Sounds like you've made a good plan!

    I've been updating my UFO list for 2019 inspiration!

    This week at DD's I'll finish up her placemats and work more on the dinette cushions. Other projects to fit in when I can are knitting baby blanket, making flannel receiving blankets and making a doll carrier for Julia.

    Hello all!

    Finished the 2nd tank embroidery - gift wrapped! :)

    Started the Ribbon Paperclips project but I think I need to use a dab of hot glue on each one to keep ribbon in place - have to play with it. So much for quick and easy, lol

    Will be working on class Christmas treats and the paperclips this week.

    Also will be creating "Thanks for keeping me on target" gift card holders for slipping Target gift cards into for DS's teacher and two aides.

    In training all this week and it sucks sitting when your not used to be sitting all day. Kenny will be home tomorrow he has his last final at 8 in the morning and will be on the road after that. All I know is it better take him the 5 hours to get home he will never get out of a second ticket.

    I did get the grinch faces cut out for ornaments but not happy with the green in the bulbs so searching for something else in a different color before doing anymore of those.

    Finish Kenny's fleece blanket
    work on tshirt quilt when he is not home
    Karlee's mom angel ornament
    Kayla and Kalis wine glasses
    figure out saying for a wine glass for Randa and do
    make bottle openers for Jay, David, Ken
    Finish up moms family bottles
    Hoping to have this done by wens so I can figure out what else needs to get done

    Sewn ornaments are done with the machine sewing so just have to do the hand stitching and button on. Will take to work as the quilt isn't cut. I prewashed all the material (I do sometimes and sometimes not) and the batting shred all over. Rewashed and some better but will have to take a lint brush to it. Always something.

    Got the items to make the lotion and seasoning salt too.

    Finished the ribbon paperclips last night but forgot to take a pic!

    Things left to tackle:

    Target Gift Card Holders (3)
    "Gift Not Included" Tag
    Gluing up the pieces to Marshmallow Roasting Sticks - found I have to pull some of the stuffing out to get stick down into the "handle" part and then use tweezers to get stuffing back in again - it's a pain - which is why I keep putting it off! :oops:

    AJ ~ Darn! I wanted to see those cute paper clips!

    Lana ~ You pre-wash batting, too?

    It's great to see so much being accomplished!

    I finished one flannel blanket this morning and I think I got the serger re-threaded. I'm going to try to get some serging done on the cushion covers while Julia naps, so I'd better get going!

    Normally I don't wash the batting but this was the one that you put in potato bags and such and said you could or couldn't so thought heck washing the rest so in it went with the color catches and all.

    Finished the other hand sewing on ornaments so need to glue the buttons on and put string in and start cutting other items.

    I finished a shadow box. I’ll get it in the mail tomorrow. I need to paint on two grinch faces for glitter ornaments. And I need to help DD do the grinch wreath.

    Good job Diedra!

    Got a bowl thingy done last night. Need to do 3 more for sure and maybe more. Was pretty simple! I made a potholder but have to put the binding on it yet.

    Want to get rest cut and doll blanket cut. Allen said he would do that so I might go do my seasoning salt and lotion while waiting. He is in town now.

    After fighting with DD's serger for a while, I finally got all the fabric edges for the pillow covers serged. Then I sewed the first seams of the 5 remaining pillows so they are ready for the zippers. I didn't feel like starting the zippers right away, so I made a flannel receiving blanket. I'm getting fairly close to the end of the sewing projects I brought with me and the ones DD had in line for me, but it seems that now she is considering making a cover for her couch out of a large quilt that she's not using for anything else. I'm wondering if she's going to try to get me involved in that project.

    15 seasoning salts and 12 lotions done. Might get another lotion or 2 if I cut the bottles open.

    Printed out some sayings and got the candy to put in a bag to staple to it.

    I will put the ornaments, salts, lotions and sayings in a basket and will let family take what they want on Christmas Eve.

    Getting ready to go fill the bags and cut fabric.

    IMG_1943.jpg Finished the two glitter Grinch ornaments. I figured out I could use sewing transfer paper to get a slight outline of the grinch face onto the ornament. Then I painted it with a black paint pen. Dh said I have to get the yellow for the eyes. I'll check Walmart for it tomorrow.
