Monday, November 8

Happy November!! It's so hard to believe that the year of 2010 is just a few months from being done and that the holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas are drawing nearer each day.In light of the Thanksgiving holiday in just a couple short weeks, the wool designs for this months meeting are themed for the occasion. Darci's creativity has been flowing and we can't wait to see what the finished result will turn out to look like.
We've also been sneaking in some new cotton samples. The above table runner is a pattern by This & That and used the Holly Taylor holiday fabrics.

This quilt (shown a few posts earlier) is super close to being done. Seems like we just can't quite get the binding cut, ironed and sewn to make it complete. Many people who have come into the shop have commented on the choice of fabrics and especially the jumbo brown rick-rack that seemed to frame off the quilt top rather nicely!

A few days ago, the FedEx man stopped in to deliver a long-overdue package of fabrics by Whimisicals called "Tangled Threads". This is fabulous fabric to work with in beautiful fall tones. It also blends in beautifully with some of our coordinating pieces of "New Mist" that was by Moda's Sentimental Studios.

Now. . . if we just had some extra time to sew up some great samples!!!

Lacey decided to take a step out from the cotton box and tried her hand at sewing a pair of elf slippers. Seems like she may have got a bit side-tracked as only one slipper has been completed.
These are cute slippers are perfect for that youngster during the holiday season!!

We've had a lot of people looking for some quick, rather inexpensive holiday gift ideas.
We love doing tea towels.
We have a wonderful pattern by MeMe's Quilts that has lots of fun tea towel ideas that are quick to do and have small enough applique pieces that makes using up that stash work.

Our "Busy Binder" traded in her binding needles for the embroidery needle and did up these tree ornaments in a snap!
If you like to embroider, these ornaments would not only be cute hanging on your tree, or around the house, but would also make a quick gift.

She also finished up an embroidery project by Bareroots that she had done a while ago!
This quilt is oh so very fitting of her and she can't wait to get it back in her house to display.

I always have a hard time trying to end a post. I am not a big fan of "good bye" so I'll leave you with the one thing I remembered from part of the Kung Fu Panda movie we watched last night.,
There is a saying:
Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery, but today is gift. That's why it is called "present".
Wishing that you all are able to take some time and enjoy your "present"!
