When I saw this pattern, well I just had to make it...it had me at the giant rick rack.....tooooo cute!!! The pattern is This Takes The Cake from Sandy Gervais. Her patterns are always so much fun, and this one was so fast and easy, all out of 2 charm packs...actually the pattern calls for one charm pack and some extra yardage. I didn't have the extra yardage so I finagled what I needed from a second charm pack and made my border squares a bit bigger. I plan to do some back art on the back with some of the remaining charm squares and even make a small table topper. There was a piece of wool felt left over from Luke's Christmas stocking, so that's what I used for the heart. Next I finished up block 6 and 7 for The Designer Block Of The Month from Fat Quarter Quilt Shop. Good thing, because this afternoon block number 8 arrived. I have really enjoyed making these blocks. Now I am very tempted to sign up for next Designer BOM.
Here's a Christmas table topper that I pieced and had quilted but never got the binding on. I am planning on this being my January finish up project. We will be watching some football tomorrow so this will be the perfect project for that. May Britt and Kris have this wonderful challenge going to finish up a project a month and I am hoping by Monday to add it to my sidebar January finish!
What a great surprise I had today. I received a phone call from Lorraine in Australia. We had such a wonderful talk. It sounded like she was right next door. I have been a follower of her blog for a long time and to actually have a phone visit was so fun. It was just like talking to an old friend.
......and this is how we roll at grandma's house!!! Yes, that is a rope tied to the front!!! Baby Polka Dot loves to be pulled around in the kitchen,...but no worry we don't break any speeding laws. We take it nice and easy!!! I am even teaching him how to jump on the bed, with my assistance of course. What happens at grandmas stays at grandmas!!!!! Wishes for lots of quilting going on here and there for you all. Happy Sunday (and Monday over seas) to everyone!
