I'm backtracking to remember what I did over the weekend...
besides clean out closets!
One thing that I did was to pick the fabric collection for
this quilt along by Clover & Violet.
I have been hoarding my Gardenvale fabrics... and was trying to
decide between these and Christmas fabrics for Glisten.
Gardenvale won out... but I am kind of thinking about
making at least a table runner size out of the Holiday fabrics using
the same pattern.
I cut out 8 stockings for Christmas. Four for the grandchildren.
There are two more in the family since last year!
I made some new ones that actually coordinate for the "girls" in
the family also.
I worked on this little seasonal quilt project that Lori Holt
shared on her blog last week to
celebrate her Cozy Cottage Calendar blog hop.
You can find the tutorial at Bee In My Bonnet.
Another little task was on the agenda...
I needed to put bindings on these quilts.
The two in front I had made...
but my DDIL claimed them and had them quilted
along with the quilt she made behind them.
The catch was... "as a birthday present" she asked me to
bind them for her.
(She's a smart girl)! ha
That was a year ago.
So I knew I had to step on it and have them ready for her
on THIS birthday!
I also got reacquainted with my Vintage Farm Girl Blocks.
I made one for my group of blocks and one to give
a blog friend and a Bees Knees quilting group member,
...who is making a whole quilt out of this block!
Two hens a-laying...
I have really been getting into the holiday spirit!
I have already started listening to Christmas music...
and I am anxious to start the decorating!
(maybe just a few pine cones... subtle vignettes to start with)!
