Since I know most of you visit to see my quilty posts, here we go...
In previous posts, I've told you about our new granddaughter, born mid-October. Well... here's a photo of her quilt, bound and ready for label and sleeve:
Inspired by Darlene Zimmerman's
in her fat quarter small quilts book
DH and I visited 3 antique malls on Black Friday. Some great bargains to be had ! We were looking for rusty tin canning jar covers, but only found them on the jar at $8 to $30. Not what we wanted. DH is my scout and came to me with a handful of tin tart molds. Perfect ! They became pincushions...
If you're looking for a perfect gift for the stitcher in your life, I would part with one of these for $12. Feel free to contact me. I have several more tins to fill and you can choose the fabric color.
Last night was Squanicook Colonial Quilt Guild's (my guild) Holiday meeting - and we had our 1st Annual "Squanicookie Bakeoff." 3 year-old granddaughter, Meghan, and I made Snickerdoodle Squanicookies. No we didn't win a prize - just making cookies with a little one is prize enough for me... I did, however, come home with a "cookie buzz" and saw 3:00AM on the clock. Needless to say, I'm tiod today !
As chair of our Guild Challenge, I am so excited to report that we have 35 New England sports team-themed quilts in progress, which will be donated to "Wrapped Up in Sports." Check out this very worthy cause at http://www.wrappedupinsports.org/ .
All participants were anxious to see what others had accomplished and to move on to the next row or border in this Row and Round Robin project. To be continued...
Saturday I am speaking at Breakfast Club at the Quilted Crow Quilt Shoppe, Boxborough, MA, and will be presenting a trunk show of the little quilts I've made for Jo (Morton)'s Little Women' Club #8 and #9. Breakfast Club is from 9AM-10:30, the cost is $9 and breakfast will be served. Now, where can you get breakfast AND entertainment for $9 !!!! Here are just a few of the little quilts:
Time to get crackin' ~ Sun is shining. Think I'll go for a walk - need the fresh air to help flush the sugar from the system !!!!
And sew on...Jeanne
