Sorry, I have been MIA lately busy with some mom duties and have not got much sewing in. I pieced the little tea kettle for the Snapshots Quilt Along and hope to make the dog in the basket this week. I am making mini quilts with the blocks, so I will add a white border and quilt this one up ASAP.
Since I seem to have lost my sewing mojo, I signed up for last night's Friday Night Sew In (FNSI) http://sugarlanequilts.blogspot.com/2015/04/fnsi-sign-ups.html and got myself back into my sewing room. I met Lindsey for a Friday afternoon happy hour where we enjoyed white peach sangria and appetizers. Then, we brought dinner home to our hubbies which meant I made it into me sewing room by 6pm. I machine quilted the fabrics for these Coffee Koozies. Here is the link to the free pattern
I made a bunch of these for Christmas presents, but for this batch I did not piece them just using 4.5 x 12.5 inch fabric pieces.
These are gifts for Secretary's Day which is on Wednesday, 4/22. I just dug into my scrap bins for cheerful spring fabrics. The coffee cups are the reusable ones that Starbucks sells for $1.
I made 7 of them between last night and this afternoon.
I hit the after Easter sale at Target and got chocolates at 75% off and filled the cups to the brim. I spent about $2 each on these sweet little gifts. I always try to be generous with the secretaries and custodians at the schools I work at because they are really who run the schools. A little kindness with them goes a very long way!
I am nearly done with the second side of my Journey of a Quilter and have the third side all traced and ready for the hand quilting. I will spend some of Sunday with this for Slow Sunday Stitchinghttp://kathysquilts.blogspot.com
I have some other projects I need to work on, but they are secret sewing and cannot be shared, but I will share it as soon as I can!
