I have been busy, working on small projects for Christmas. I'll share what I can!
I got this quilt top done, and was hoping it would be a finished quilt by now, but I got distracted by some other projects. I am planning to hand quilt it, it's not too big, about 40"x 56". I have it all quilted around the "Noel", and I did keep going, but will need to take a bunch of the quilting out, as it is rather bunched up. I used Hobbs Heirloom fusible batting, and at first I thought it was working great. That was until it came loose. I will need to try and fuse it again, and/or baste it, I suppose.
I had a meeting a couple of weeks ago, and the group of us did a Christmas sock exchange. Maybe you've seen the idea out there, if not, you can Google it. Lots of ideas for a game to play and exchange the socks. Kind of like "dirty Bingo" that we played years ago to exchange white elephant gifts. Anyhow, I found Frosty the Snowman socks online at Target. I added my dollar store purchases. Second photo is Bumpkin, letting me know that my loot passes inspection.
I also included the mug rug in the photo below. I have been making lots of mug rugs!
In fact, so many that my finger tips are sore from hand stitching binding....I tend to poke myself with the needle a lot!
I did buy the pattern for the red truck. It was so cute, I couldn't resist!
I got it on Etsy... it was a PDF instant download. I got it here
I also made a few bibs......
Top Rudolph and bottom snowman are for my granddaughter. The middle 2 I gave to a friend for her 2 grandsons. They were so fun to make. I found a free toddler bib pattern online. The other pattern I already had, and I have used a lot. This time I made my own bias binding......... (ooohhh fancy!)
Ok, I think that is it for now! I will be babysitting my granddaughter today. She will be 2 next month. I am looking forward to a fun day!
