Small finishes

I finished 2 of these today. They are also for Christmas. You put crayons in it, roll it up, and tie it. Cute, quiet way to keep crayons together for little ones. I think I tested this one for a digitizer. I have made probably a hundred of these over the years. Makes great little presents for little ones. I have even given some to teenagers in cool prints with hugh coloring books.

Christmas top

I once saw cute little pins with numbers on them, I wanted some. Not too crazy about the price. So I made my own. I love it. I don't have a problem keeping my little stacks straight to sew. But I like to keep my rows numbered to keep them straight. I sewed this one on my serger, so I really don't want to unsew. I know lots of quilters cringe when I say I sew some quilts on my serger. My I love it, fast, super strong seams, and I have never had a problem quilting it.

Christmas top

This one is a little challenging to put together. I had one square of some fabrics, and 25 of others. It was hard to get a good mix, I just finally did the best I could. Really fun to sew, little stressful to layout, easy to iron. It won't be a very big quilt.

New starts

I bought this bundle years ago, then I chopped off little strips for baby quilts to add color. So I really didn't know how big the quilt will be. I did have a few charms that someone had given me. It was quite fun making this one. I usually make scrappy ones, lots of ironing and sorting, and straightening . This was all in one little basket, just had to do a little ironing, and little cutting.

Don't know if I should count this as a new start since most of the squares just needed a little trimming down. This will be a Christmas present. Yes, I know, I will be finishing it Christmas Eve.

Small finishes

Here's 2 cute drawer sachets I made on my embroidery machine. The little square pillow is a freebie from S.W.A.K. I love their designs. I just bought some snowflakes from them, and I will show them soon.

I can't remember where I got the little cutie baby.

I was hoping to free motion quilt today, but we are having a big supper at our house tomorrow. So I am busy cooking turkey, rice dressing, cornbread dressing, potatoe casserole. Can't wait.
