Happy December! Winter has finally arrived in our neck of the woods--a little snow and really cold. I am frantically working on last minute Xmas gifts. I am making tea towels with Bath and Body Works hand soaps as gifts for coworkers. I got these done yesterday.
Most of the appliqué designs are from Lori Holt's Bloom Sew Along.
I already had an entire plastic tub of kitchen towels waiting to be appliqued, so I ordered the hand soaps a few weeks ago.
I have just a couple of more to make. These will be my gifts for Secretary's Day in the spring, so I might make some more now.
I also am going to make a Xmas design to take as a hostess gift to our neighborhood's annual party next weekend.
Speaking of Xmas, I am still plugging away with Xmas red work embroidery from Red Brolly's free designs. Here is the link:
This will be my afternoon and evening project for Slow Sunday Stitching:
That leaves my December OMG--I thought about quilting a big UFO, but after struggling with my mom's longarm--we think there is something wrong with the stitch regulator--I changed my mind!
I have decided to make the rest of the Magic of Christmas Blocks my goal--I have 13 blocks done and 12 more to go and a couple I think I will redo. This is a free quilt along from Lisa Bongean and she just rapidly posted the rest of the blocks:
