Gifts: from me & for me

004005 - CopyTodd & Jessica

Here is what I worked on in September and October.  There are several sets of placemats.  The original pattern was from 3 Creative Studios, a slash and sort pattern.  The plan then was to flip and sew and be done.  However, I didn’t think there was enough quilting so machine quilted (DSM) each section.  I used Christmas fabric on the backs so these placemats are good to go all year.  And I love the gold binding, fabric from RJR.

Then, during the month of December I won two giveaways.  The first was from Amy .


Here you see two Christmas fat quarters, two rulers (there really is a little triangle ruler in front of the fabric), some 2 1/2” strips of fabric, a box of pins and a box of quilt blocks and quilt patterns.  Such fun to start planning.


And this giveaway is from Brenda.  This is a mat to sit under my Featherweight.  It has two pockets, that will hang down from the table, to hold “stuff” and also came with a delightful postcard.  The things from Amy are sitting on the back of this mat.  I love the postcard because it shows my “before” and “after” of my Weight Watcher’s adventure.

I can’t stay on the computer.  My DS and DBIL from CA are turning into the driveway.  I haven’t seen them for 3 1/2 years and am really looking forward to a good evening with them as they are returning home from a FL vacation.  See ya soon.
