Weekend Round Up

>> Monday, November 8, 2010

Saturday was a very creative day at our house.
Those who play instruments, played, and those who quilt (that's me!) played too!
This is a sneak peek at one option for my newest pattern - with lots of fabrics trying out for various roles.
I'm trying to add different styles/colour options right in the pattern - so you don't have to work hard to play with colour.
The tree you can see here I'm classifying as "Whimsical Joy". Would you agree?
It will be a mid-size wallhanging and ready in time for you to make before this year's holidays:) Stay tuned.

Sunday I actually got to sit down to some football, which meant my little handwork case got to stay open and active for more than 15 minutes. It looks like I need to do a thread cleanup!

{that's my friendship bag I made for me! It's holding stuff for the project I'm working on }

The results: 12 more of my Season of Grace stockings now have rickrack loops to hang them up by. Only 6 more to go! Plus I discovered some extra stockings that I can use for gifts this year.

Here's a preview of my Season of Grace quilt. I am almost done quilting the middle.
Still have to decide how/if I'm adding quilting to the borders.

Tonight I might work on adding more buttons - or getting those last 6 stockings ready.

If you got this far in my post - here's what my design wall looks like this morning!
I'm getting ready to share another pattern with you to celebrate 300 posts!!
It isn't {necessarily} a Christmas project - but it would make a great gift.
More details later in the week.

Tomorrow is Tuesday Cake Talk - come back to see my first blocks for the Layer Cake Quilt Along!

Check out what's up on the other design walls this week through the links at Judy's blog.

Thanks for visiting.
With Joy,

Very interesting. Are the stockings going to be an advent calendar? Or a quilt. Hmmm.
