Chris’s quilt is Weave it Be designed by Angela Walters of The Midnight Quilter.
Believe it or not, I recorded this yesterday but it after 3 hours it still hadn’t uploaded so I turned it off and tried again today. Only took 10 minutes or so. Geez!
Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of months but I have been watching. I’ll try to do better at posting!
I finished the bag! YAY! And I think it turned out pretty well. Patrick came over Tuesday and put heat tape on our water pipes under the trailer. YAY! He took the bag home and he and Vanessa loved it. Here are a couple of pics of the bag (Tim put a pillow in it to make it look better). Very short video!
Patrick found a number where kids can call Santa. He dialed it and Garrick got to talk to him. When Santa asked Garrick what he wanted for Christmas, he answered, “A present.”
Later Patrick asked him what he wanted to get his Mommy for Christmas and, of course he said, “A present.” When asked what kind of present, he didn’t know. So Pat showed him some things on the internet that Mommy would like. He said, “Get Mommy a blanket.” And Pat asked him what kind and Garrick answered, “A pink blanket.” So Vanessa is getting a pink blanket from Garrick.
Right after this video was made, I finished sewing the Santa sack. As soon as I get the grommets I can finish it up.
No video this week. The camera on my computer just isn’t working and I need to do something else. Oh well.
But I wanted to check in with you and let you know about the Christmas projects I have going on. I ‘m making placemats and napkins for Pat and Vanessa. And Vanessa asked me if I would make a Santa bag for Garrick’s gifts from Santa. So, I’m in the thinking phase for that. She asked for a pieced bag but I don’t have enough child’s Christmas fabric so I will have to go shopping or, more likely, ordering. I’d love to make it a Rankin-Bass bag, but don’t think I have time to make the blocks. The bag is rather large – about 28 X 38. If any of you have any ideas please let me know.
Meanwhile here’s a picture we took last week of PopPop giving Garrick a little bass lesson while we were at their house for Tim’s birthday.
