I am really thankful to have had the right and the opportunity to vote this week!
I'm happy that some of the candidates and issues that I supported were successful this year. I'm also really thankful to be done with all those yucky election commercials on TV and radio, as well as the junk mail and phone calls!
I really like trying new blocks and patterns, so I've had fun playing with fabric and thread in my sewing room this week.
I bet you can't guess what this is! (wink!) More about him later!
I liked stitching another redwork design from Gail Pan's Christmas Patchwork Loves Embroidery book.
So simple and enjoyable to work on!
I've also been making these blocks, a few at a time.
I have had a layer cake of Bonnie and Camille's "Hello, Darling" in my stash for a long time, and have broken into it more than once when I needed a certain color for a project, but I'm sure there are enough 10 inch squares left to make a baby quilt. I'm using this tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew to make the blocks. "Easy Stack, Cut and Sew Blocks" in red, turquoise, and lime green!
I like learning new skills so I'm planning to participate in Elm Street Quilts' hand piecing quilt along, starting in January.
Check out Patty's blog HERE for more info - she's already had a couple of posts with helpful info in them.
I even have a couple of fat quarter bundles set aside for this QAL!
I guess I'll go sew! :)
