In which I show off a finished fleece blanket for Project Linus, and snippets of in progress “stuff”. Edited out random digressions about sewing machine feet and machines in general. You’re welcome. 😉
I am finally making things again!!! I’m crossing things off my to-do list for the year! And it’s my 300th TTMT video. Woo!!! *throws confetti*
To celebrate my 300th video, here’s my first video from July 30, 2009. Almost 10 years ago!!! In it you can see my very first block that I paperpieced. This is basically when I first started learning to quilt. And it’s also before I taught myself to crochet. OMG it is so blurry, though. Wow. I think I recorded it with my old laptop. Also, I think those were my favorite glasses ever. I need to find some more frames like that.
In which I show what I’ve gotten done so far on the Chinrest cover plus my swap strips and some surprise mail from Susan. So there’s stuff to show, it’s just most of it wasn’t made by me.
In which I talk about snow, and show off stuff I bought yesterday. And the best part is that I had gift cards left from my birthday and Xmas, so I only had to pay 68 cents out of my own pocket for all this stuff!
In which I am completely distracted and keep having to remind myself what I am doing. Includes photos of the finished Bear Panel Quilt that was turned in to Project Linus this past weekend. Video now with 100% more Pouncy.
In which I talk about finishing the Bear Panel quilt for Project Linus for my donation for this month. It’s almost ready to bind!
Allergies, cold, whatever this is, it makes it difficult to talk for more than a sentence or two, so I’m going to skip the video this week, and just give you a brief bullet list of what’s happening here…
- Removed Pfaff Grandquilter from the frame and set it up on a folding table to finish quilting the Bear quilt… it’s going great! This is actually the first time I’ve quilted on the Pfaff off of the frame, and it’s been fun so far.
- Buying crafty stuff on amazon… like THIS and also cones of thread and also THIS . And now my holiday bonus from work (Amazon gift card) is officially gone byebye.
- car repairs (spark plugs misfiring, oil leak, and more)… so much fun (not)
Have a crafty week!
PS: GO PATS!
