In fact, you can join in too! Just post about what you are working on and go link up!
And now, on to the show!
- Tree skirt
This one, as I said yesterday, is being a stinker. I have ripped out a billion seams. And, when I went to sew the rows together, I realized I had trimmed too much when I squared the blocks and my points are being cut off. So I got to un-assemble again! I guess I am going to have to make smaller seams. :P Things I have left on this one: piece the rows together, add the final strips, cut the corners, sandwich, baste, quilt and bind.
I have one finished and I really need to work on sewing curves. There are lots of unwanted points on this one. I think I am going to draw a line to follow on the next one and see if that helps. I have 5 more to go.
- Advent Calendar
This project is still in the same state. I have to make all the stockings and see what fabric I have left to make the pockets. Since we are already using the cardboard calendars with chocolates, I slowed down on this one, to work on the tree skirt. Since the tree is going to be somewhat sparse on decorations this year, thanks to a toddler obsessed with throwing things in the trash, like shoes and camera cases containing spare batteries and memory cards, we really need the new skirt to dress up the poor thing. Right now it has it's lights (it's pre-lit), some wooden berry garlands and a red bow on top.
- I also need to decide on a block size for the baby quilt due in March so my mom, sisters and I can get started.
- One stocking
- Snowman costume, due Thursday! My son is in his 3rd grade music program and is a snowman. I have a women's white sweat suit from Wal-Mart(the only place I could find ANY white clothing, and they only had adult sizes.) I bought some large black buttons to pin on the front. We did a little fitting which is not as easy as I thought it would be. He has a large saggy tush. :) Then we'll just throw on a scarf, hat and mittens, stuff him with some yet to be determined stuffing, and call it good.
- MOTP LC QA block 3
- November Block of the month for Buck a Block
That leaves me 7 Works in Progress (if you count each stocking separately) and 4 completed projects.
