I am a maker of items who now can say, a maker of quilts as well.

My run on this wall hanger "Tis The Season" has come to a temporary halt. I don't have enough of the fabric left over for the last border. I'll use that fabric for the binding.
Can't buy any fabric until later in the month and then I am hoping to have this one finished and crossed off my white board before February starts.
Don't mind admitting I was very disappointed with not being able to finish the wall hanger. I thought it would be a good idea to finish each item I picked to complete. Still its not a draw out of the way, but hanging on a coat hanger where I can see it.
This morning I have been cleaning up and packing away the bits of fabric not needed and cleaning out the door of my sewing machine. I like to do this at the end of each project.
I'm going to use this time while waiting to buy the fabric, to get stuck in to James and Tamara's quilt. Was going to sandwich and quilt the sampler quilt, but I need more quilting pins. Thinking about maybe getting some of those "things" that go on the ends of the pins. So I don't need to use quilting safety pins. This too has been on hold until I buy the fabric for "Tis The Season".
If you use those little do-dars on the end of your quilting pins, tell me what you think of them please.
Thought I'd show you the hexies I have been collecting for a while in a monthly swap. Wondering what to make with them. I'm thinking maybe a quilt?
I love organic gardening, crafts and writing about my pig's adventures. Also I have a HUGGLES For Kids as an ongoing appeal. All kids love to HUGGLE a softie. If you want to make some and send them to me....email me.
