Okay so I know it’s not exactly NEW Year’s anymore but…hey, we’re only ten days in, so it’s still pretty new.
It’s been a crazy couple of months here – with holidays, ice storms, snow storms, working retail, then WOOHOO getting a icky yucky cold. I hate being sick. Who doesn’t!
A few quilt finishes for gifts – one super bright Holiday theme for my Mom; to brighten up her room. Institutions are so drab and grey ( and don’t even ask about the smell….ack) so I found some super bright cheery Christmasy type fabric and did a quick Bricks and Sticks….
|Before trimming and binding. Just the top.|
She really liked it. So did I actually. 🙂
One quilt was a finish from the summertime; for one of J’s sisters; it’s super cute and
it’s done up of various vintage fabrics I’ve salvaged and a charm pack of Ruby & Opal. It’s Vintage Chic and I used the ever faithful Disappearing 9 Patch.
The last quilt I haven’t quite finished yet….um….It’s cut, the blocks assembled, it just needs to be sewn together into a top. I found this super awesome Autism Awareness fabric (a cause near and dear to our family) and am making two quilts; one for Sister #2 to keep, and one to donate to auction off for Autism Awareness later next year.
I shall leave you all with a recipe for some seriously kick ass chicken soup. I made a pot and ate a pot in like, three days. (Not the pot. I ate the soup. The pot is fine.)
