Christmas in August Sewing Party

3:45pm
Done! I have enough sashing fabric for binding and backing. I will turn it width wise on the table when I use it, not as I photographed in the lengthwise. This was a very easy project - 6 nine patch blocks cut width wise and lengthwise and rearranged and then sewn back together. Don't you just love the purple with the Christmas greens and reds? So pretty. Hope everyone had a great day! It was really nice to connect with people I hadn't "spoken" to before. Now I will jump in the shower and have a glass of wine before we head out for dinner. The icing on a perfect day- life is good!  



2:30 p.m.
Break time for lunch, and a trip to the gym with my daughter. The flimsy is almost done and a good one to accomplish in a day.





10:30 a.m.


Nine patches are together, ready to be cut into 4....coffee is gone and have switched to water. How is everyone else doing????


8:30 am


I have my nine patch blocks laid out- looks very yellow in this picture, but is definitely not this yellow...
I have my snacks and channel changer close at hand, and I am ready to go !


Tomorrow I am participating in the Charming Girls Quilt Club  Sewing Party. We are to make something for the Christmas season, and I have chosen to make a table topper, the pattern from Moda Bakeshop. It is a bigger project than I want, so I am going to downsize it to fit my table, as the 48X48 size is too big and too much to try to do in one day....now I am off to decide what fabric I want to use. See you tomorrow!

LOL -- you can definitely see it's not as "yellow" in the more recent photo! Isn't it funny how photography does that?? :)
