I set forth my list of To Do's and they all became Ta-Dah's! I love a productive week...
✔ I'll be wrapping up the table topper with our business logo
I love the way it looks! And the win-win is that when Dave wants to do photos of the the guns he builds or restores there is no need for watermarking the photos.
He did tell me that it is too nice to be left on the table between shoots so it will be protected from grease and oil stains.
Just look at all that texture! Though it seemed to take forever to do the acres of stippling, it was worth it.
And the 80% cotton batting, after washing and drying it, adds to it!
✔ Releasing the next Pieces From The Past block - #15 - The Maple Leaf Block - a super simple pattern that is a very traditional and a family recipe for pinto beans that ties into the letter from former Prisoner of War, Erich Vogel.
This is a hotpad that I made using the pattern... I love the effect of the printed background and "disappearing" leaf.
✔ Starting a baby quilt for a special young lady we have known for about 20 years.
Not only did I start it, I finished it. The center panel featuring Tigger says "Let's Go Explore". The quilt is a small one... perfect for a newborn baby and tummy time.
❧I'll be sewing on a label before sending it off... one of the projects I'll be taking with me as we run off for one final camping trip for the year.
We'll be headed to a canyon that has dinosaur tracks in it - The Picketwire Trail.
With the holiday season looming just around the corner I decided to pull some pretty fabric out of storage and make some wraps to sell. A tutorial to make them is available on Marie Bostwick's blog.
