I'm just sewing out my stress.

Christmas Gift 2010 December 29, 2010

Christmas has come and gone.  What is your reflection of this year?  Mine was very different from the past years.  The husband and I agreed to no gifts especially since we just did the cruise.  Our friends adopted a family from the United Christmas Service here in Indianapolis.  We offered to help them adopt this family and were assigned to the 4 year old boy.  Toys, clothes, and shoes were on his wish list.  I had to keep the hubby out of the toy section.  Feedback from our friend says they were very grateful for the gifts.   Looking forward to doing this again.

My mother-in-law is the best.  She reads my blog regularly and fully supports my creative side.  She even went to a couple of quilt shops with me in October.  The gift is very simple but exactly what I need.    

After reading about my 2011 Project she had an idea for a gift.  I absolutely loved it.  I am in trouble that I opened the box early, but this was worth it.  Good thing, I ran out of black thread last night. 

Thread to match the colors of the 2011 Project.

So I asked my Facebook friends what their gift of the season was.  Here are some of their responses:

Terrie – “A healthy husband!”

Chris – “A shake weight”  Fun considering what his profession is.

Joan – “Kool-Aid dyed yarn from my grandson”

Kim – “DisneyPrincess dress up kit for my daughter.  She has changed costumes at least 50 times and won’t stop.”  She enjoys giving gifts and the joy it brings others.  Her work has an Angel Tree and her department adopts a few children.  The giving is a bond for the co-workers.

Mother-in-Law – “Wedding pictures”

Mom – “Dinner with the family”

Thank you everyone for sharing with me.  Hope you and your family had a great Holiday season as well.

Wow, where has the year gone?  It’s August already. 

This whole new work schedule is great for me to sew in the mornings and get my creative energy out.  Unfortunately, I haven’t had much time to write here.  Not too much different going on in the sewing room.  I did take some time yesterday to clean it up and get more organized. 

Here is the latest fabric that has inspired me.  I picked it during my trip to NYC. 

My design wall has a completed top on it.  Now I just need to find a great backing fabric.  The top is Moda Eva and there are still some stores that sell it.  Not sure what color I want to focus on out of green, purple, or pink.  I’m leaning towards pink and green thread during the quilting.

Groovy Girl's Quilt

Well I had this quilt completed yesterday, but had to take photos today.  I have been trying to stash bust and this is the start of some 24 projects that I found.  OH Man am I going to be busy.  More great things to share. 

I’m working on a Quilts for Kids completion to get mailed out on Saturday.  The top has taken no time, just need to get it finished then basted.

Also on tap is a baby quilt for a friend Ashley.  I’m afraid Lily might be here before I get it completed, that is my fault though. 

On the desing wall is a Moda Eva quilt.  I need to go searching for green, pink and purple veragated thread.
