Finally finishing a few projects!!!

Hey there ...

I've done lots of thinking over the past week and while I have been thinking I have finished a few things.

1.  Grandma's Wall hanging - She bought the pattern and I was to make it!!!

2. This is a pattern I bought a while ago.  Finally finished!!! 

3.  I saw a picture of a circle like Christmas tree like the one below.  It was introducing a new fabric line.  I loved it and thought .... I could make something like that!!  Vanessa, Kristy and I all made our own versions.  Vanessa and Kristy actually got theirs done ... I just finished mine tonight!!!  I may make a few more of these too.  I don't think I will cut them out, might just leave them square!

These are the next few projects that I would like to finish:

 I can't remember when I started the following three stitcheries and now I know why I haven't finished them.  I need to order the buttons!!!

 I also stumbled upon these books!  The stitcheries are all from these books.  There are a number of projects I would like to make out of each of these. 

This book has so many cute snowman things.  I have the snowman stitchery from above to complete and then I want to make the snowman/tree garland, the snowman table runner and the snowman place mats.  I am kind of partial to snowmen!!!

 I have made a few things out of the Autumn book already.  I made the Ghost & Jack-o-lantern Garland, which still needs to be finished.  I would have finished tonight but I can't find my glue gun.  I need to glue the Jack-o-lanterns to the ghosts.  I was going to sew them on by hand until I read the instructions and it said to glue them on!!!  Now if I could only find my glue gun!!!

I love this book too!!!  I want to make the Santa/reindeer table runner, reindeer place mats, maybe a Santa pillow!

This book is great too!!!  Much more Santa stuff to make in this one!!!  Santa garland, place mats and reindeer pillows!!!  There's the cutest tree skirt in this one too!!!

Like always ... so much to sew, so little time to sew!!!  What have you been up to lately???  Tomorrow, if it's raining, I'm going to finish the panel that you gave me with the "I believe" statements on it!!  I'm going to have to dig through my bins to see what else I need to get finished!!!  If its not raining, we are going golfing and then out to Alameda for Wyatt's birthday party!!!

Take care ... happy sewing!


  1. Love the finishes. I really have been unproductive in the quilting department lately. I have a crochet project coming up though that I'll share.

  2. I can't wait to see it!!!
