It's really amazing how much you can get accomplished when you don't have to go to work! Our office typically closes the week between Christmas and New Years and I've been able to spend some quality time in my sewing room. Here's a few of the projects I've been wanting to do, and finally had the time:
(Ayumi's patchwork cat mat out of the Spring/Summer 2011 Stitch)
(another pair of slippers, but this time for L-man. Using Ayumi's pattern once again)
(Corey's block for Ringo Pie. Her theme is "quilts on a line". So I made a patchwork forest to hang the quilt on)
Matte wanted me to give everyone a friendly reminder that if you use someone else's work, to make sure and ask first. I didn't even think of that in this case, but emailed him after the fact to show him what I had done based off his painting, and he was very encouraging and kind. Thank you Matte for that!!
(the blue specs pillow. I made this block for inclusion in the book Modern Quilt Blocks, so if you're interested in the pattern, you can find it in the book.)
I hope you are having an awesomely fun and productive end of the year. We're ringing in the new year with a party at our home tonight with some friends. Do you have any special plans?
Off I go to finish a few things!
