Just in case you weren’t already aware, Christmas is coming! I was sewing myself silly in December in an attempt to have a semi-homemade Christmas this year. Some of my family is far, far away and I was hoping to send them some Christmas cheer. I only managed to get the presents partly done by Christmas but I finally mailed them last week. On the bright side, it will be quite a surprise and more special because there won’t be any other presents to distract them, right?
I ended up making 11 pillows this year, two table runners, five pairs of pj pants, several shirts for the baby, one zipper pouch, and nine keychain wristlets. I didn’t get pictures of everything (of course!).
I read an excellent post about a woman who has documented all of her quilts since the late 70’s (Tessa from Fabric Therapy. Go check it out. Awesome, right?). I started quilting in 1980 and I have a few pictures of some of the sewing I did back then but most of my quilts have been given away (and loved, I am sure). I am hoping to get some pictures from some of my family and I will post them if I do.
I do have pictures of some of the pillows I made.
I tried out some different quilting designs on each one. I amuse myself when I can!
