SEWING, SICK GRANDPEEPS, DATE NIGHT,
I chuckled when I saw this cartoon
especially after having had the Grandpeeps around the house more than usual this past week and anticipating a BIG Grandpeep Sleep-over this Saturday night.
My Sewing Cave looks like Santa's elves have had a party and forgot to tell me! Lots of fun gifts being made...fabric tissue covers, pillow cases for the grandpeeps, chair pillows for my daughters, prayer quilt for a niece with cancer, aprons for granddaughter and 1 grandson who loves to bake, mugg ruggs for friends, tablerunner for my kitchen table, coffee mug wraps, etc...
Sewing is definitely my therapy which saves tremendously on therapy bills!
Below are SAMPLES of Fabric Tissue Holders I found on Pinterest. I have LOST my camera and can't take a picture of the ones I made. I lost my camera over the Thanksgiving Holidays and can't find it ANYWHERE. It was a new little OLYMPUS point & shoot that HAS to be in this house SOMEWHERE!!!
My Tissue Holders are very similar to these.
I copied this take-along sewing kit using lots of Lori Holt's fabric lines...Sew Cherry is my favorite.
Some Christmas Granny Squares
These are addicting to make.
I keep coming up with new color schemes.
Go to BEE IN MY BONNET
and search Lori Holt's blog for tutorial. She has a great binding tutorial up now.
Green Granny Blocks (SEW CHERRY)
Red Granny Blocks (SEW CHERRY)
Remember my Tablerunner from The Think Christmas Blog Hop??
It is now in the binding stage and almost ready for Table. It may be wrapped up as a gift.
I now have Christmas Tree bound. I left as is without quilting due to the texture of the background fabric which you can't really see in this picture.
More to come......
What are YOU sewing for Christmas?
