In addition to working on Christmas gifts this weekend, I was able to work on Tammy's Asian Strip Gift Quilt. The fabrics are luscious and it is turning out better than I imagined. I still need to add the sashing and the border, but above is a quick shot of it. Between the snow on the ground and the twenty-five miles an hour winds, I was unable to get a proper photo. But here is a close up:
I am hoping I can get this done this week, along with my Christmas gifts - I'm getting a little carried away, but fortunately, I feel good and I have the energy, so as long as I feel good, I'll keep sewing.
I was relieved to find out that Summerset cuts out all her creations with scissors, not a rotary cutter, so I've decided to give myself a break and forgo the practice with the rotary cutter on anything that isn't a straight line. If it is good enough for Summerset, it is good enough for me.
And Judy has got me interested in learning how to bake bread. I'll bookmark that one for after the first of the year.
Parting Shot: A vintage pattern that I am planning on trying out come spring. I think I got it in Carytown this summer when Summerset discovered that a second hand shop that I had been going to for years sold vintage patterns. Who knew?
