The Kids had fun to see the Parade and wave their flags.
At home I finished a couple projects and also (of course started a new one). Here first the finished stuff: Some Pillowcases, I think they gonna be christmas presents and birthday presents for some little girls in the family.For my tractor friend Benny a Pillowcase. the John Deere Fabric is a flannel and I found it as a scrap piece at Joann's. I'm working for a while on this. It was suppose to be a baby quilt, but it's just growing and growin.. I used a half yard of fabric for the middle and then just sewed around with a honey bun and a jelly roll alternating. Pretty easy and pretty fun. The Fabric I used is from Moda called "make life".
I'm still on the Adventcalendar for the kids. And now after finally buying "good" thread I can sew and embroider at the same time and it's actually fun.. I made two more today and the way it looks, I might be able to finish it in time.
And last but not leas my new project. As everybody else who's sewing, I have a lot of scraps... A LOT.. too big to throw away.. too small to actually make something out of it.. until now:
I found this wonderful blog. And fell in love with all the scrappy ideas.. I always loved the wonky blogs, but I really never made one.. I read through this tutorial . And started digging through my scraps.. and it's so much fun.. no measuring (till the end) just sewing and enjoying all these fabrics..
I'm hooked... even though I should work on christmas presents.. I just want to do scrappy wonky blocks..
