Friday Fun

Remember this one?

Going back in my files
I found this FUN - super simple beauty.

I made it using donated fabrics for a high school senior.

Gotta LOVE scrappy!!!

The dark and lights make it all work.

Monday Making

My sewing table has been busy!

I am trying to get ALL the 10 or 12 table mats made
(for an upcoming retreat)
before some other deadlines appear.
:)

This hourglass mat is almost DONE!
The little squares are all 2" before sewing them together!

And IF you want to know what trimming them all looks like....
Take a peak here------






I have been happily using a handmade bag
my daughter made me for Christmas!

Yes..
I'm a proud mama of a MAKER!

My son....
NOT "much" of a maker
gave me an instant pot.
:)

Guess I'LL be MAKING!!!
What do YOU make in your instant pot??

And..
What are you making this week??
Link up and share.

When you're MAKING...
You NEED a BIG mess of color
RIGHT next to you!!

:)

This little quilt is a TABLE MAT.
(still needing to be quilted)

Every year I make a few to be auctioned off 
at a women's retreat.

I love making these little scrappy quilts!

What are YOU making this week?

Is your mess as messy as MY mess???

Monday Making

This is an OLD quilt.
It was given to me in 1979.
The ladies at church made them for graduating seniors
and missionaries.

This quilt has been truly loved to death.
I'd like to keep using it!!
But some of the fabric is almost NOT THERE anymore.
:)
I think I will patch it up this week.

I've assembled some 4 patches....
pressed the edges in....
and now I will sew them down over the worn 4 patches.

Hand stitched or machine stitched???
I'm not sure yet.

It's a sentimental quilt, not a work of art.....
so I'm thinking the machine will do just fine!

I'm also getting close to a finish on a little beanie.
I'm using some leftover yarn.
That cream colored yarn is now ALL gone.
SO....
the hat will finish up with that pretty aqua color.
Let's HOPE I have enough!!!

otherwise...
the tip top will be something different altogether
and wouldn't that be FUN????

The pattern is called "bulky waffle hat"
and the free pattern is HERE.



What are YOU making?

Merry Christmas Friends!

This little Nativity sits on my dining room table this year.
The nativities move around each year
and I thought the gold star ornaments looked so pretty with the set.

Then...
I found the gold trees.
I said I wouldn't be buying ANY MORE decorations.
Then I saw the trees.

:/


well...
I don't think I have time to MAKE anything except FOOD this week.
(we have lots of family visiting....YEAH!)
So I'll share a practical PRETTY MAKE by my 12 year old friend.

These bibs are for my twin grandsons.
Aren't they sweet??

what are YOU making this week??
