Well it's finally here!
The first official day of the "bers" :)
Only 16 Saturdays left until Christmas!!!
Are you working on Christmas gifties yet?
Those of you who have been reading my blog
for a while know that I hate to pay full price.
So I have some great news to share!
Purses and totes make wonderful gifts,
so you might want to check out Michelle Patterns.
Just click the link on my right hand sidebar.
She's having a sale this weekend for 20% off using
coupon code "laborday" at checkout.
I've made several of her bags
and her patterns are totally FTS (fun to sew)
I'll be making some more very soon :)
Now on to my work in progress.
I have the 12 months blocks hand quilted
in red perle cotton.
Now I have to decide how I want to quilt the rest of it.
I also started cutting some of my scrap fabrics into 2 1/2" squares
so that I can make some Great Granny Square blocks.
I've seen them all over the internet
and I know I'm a little late to be jumping on that train,
but I'm smitten now
and I really want to give them a whirl :)
(I blame Pinterest)
I've also done a bit more stitching on my rooster.
He's not as far along as I would like,
but I've been hand quilting at night
instead of cross stitching.
I hope you all find some time in this long holiday weekend
for some crafty goodness!
