WIP, on my own
Whilst Lee is taking a well deserved blogging break, I'm following suit with my other bloggy friends and still doing a WIP Wednesday.
And I've been working on lots!!
I have four starry blocks done for my Seuss Quilt. This project is on hold for a bit.
Here is a sneak peak at my almost-finished Charmed Prints QAL quilt. Love, love, love it! The flange binding is super cool although I wish I could sew straighter sometimes. You can see where I stitched it down in a few places. This pic also gives you a feel for how I quilted this, dense straight lines which I think nicely complements the stripey nature of gingham. It will be done by Tuesday so it will be eligible for prizes, yay!
I've also started working on these sweats for Christmas presents from the "Sewing for Boys" book. They are WAY larger than the size they say they are for. These are a 2/3 but they will fit my size 4 toddler. Even though you don't need to with jersey, I am going to put hems on too. Overall sewing with knit fabric was good. I used a zig zag stitch and a ballpoint needle like you should, definitely helped!
Also, the holiday baking is in full swing. My version of Praline Strips, I add melted chocolate to the pecan-caramel-graham cracker goodness.
And this is a family recipe for Crunch and Munch.
Tomorrow I am making dough for Friday's bake-a-thon. Maybe I'll get to some bars too, but have lots of dough making. Hopefully my timer will go off tonight so I remember to take the butter out of the fridge. Ha!
Ta-ta for now.
