Just so you know I haven't been hitting the snooze button on my unemployed alarm clock ... I share with you a few projects I've completed since my last post:
These three bags I made over the course of this week as my Teacher Thank You gifts. Besides the fact that we placed chocolate and hand-drawn thank you notes from my girls inside, I think they were well received!
The quilt above was a project someone called asking if I could put together for her so she could present to her 40 yr old brother for Christmas ... it is 92x108 ... I do believe I will be putting together another post on this quilt in the near future so that is all I will say about this one at the moment ... however, I can say that yes ... two weeks and I did complete the top.
As many of you know, those that serve in the military hold a very special place in my heart ... for so very many reasons. Well, when I found out that a friend of mine from high school was to retire from the Navy after 25 years ... an enlisted sailor retiring as a Lt. Commander no less ... Well, I decided not to let the moment go unnoticed:
With the help of scouring ebay for old t-shirts, and a bit of pattern improvisation, I designed and quilted this and mailed it off with my appreciation.
I did have enough material to make a matching pillow case in which I mailed the quilt ... kinda fun and something to store the quilt in when warm weather comes again ....
And on that gratitude note, I will let you all know that Thank You Teddy is being mailed to Michele of L7 QUILT CO. ... my daughter's pulled her name out last Friday.
If you haven't visited with Michele you should, those of you that have know Teddy's going to a wonderful home!!
Well, I've been up to a few other tiny projects, and with Christmas next week, have several more to go as many of you do also, I am sure....
Thank you for visiting with me today, and until next we chat ...
Warm Hearted Wishes and Happy Stitching ~
