One Xmas Item for January

This year too Narelle is hosting the challenge "1 Xmas Item a month". This was a UFO. The blocks were sewn together, so I put on borders and made a little table cloth. So the first gift for Christmas is ready :-) Happy Quilting!

Yesterday's result

These scrap pieces had been in the shelf too long. I made a sewing machine mat out of them. Unfortunately I couldn't find a better fabric for the pockets, but the mat will be useful.I also got the binding on 3 pair of potholders. Not any exciting projects, but now they can be removed from the UFO list.

No sewing for the rest of the weekend, as I have to give priority to other things.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I'm joining FNSI tonight

Once a month Heidi and Bobbi will be hosting "Friday Night Sew-In" this year too. It's fun to know that people all over the world are doing handicrafts at the same time. The day after we show what we have done. Tonight I'll focus on a UFO or two. Photo(s) tomorrow.
Enjoy the day/night!

A finish

The first finish for 2012 - 10 table mats. Most of the tops were made in October, but after a long break they are now ready to be sent to England. I'll try to focus on UFOs the next weeks too.
Happy Quilting!

A new book

Today I was lucky to receive this book - "History Repeated" by Betsy Chutchian and Carol Staehle. It was a gift from a friend. There seems to be many interesting repro quilts in the book. I have much repro fabrics in my stash, so may be I get some ideas for using them. My sewing project so far in the new year has been some table mats. Hopefully I'll finish them during the weekend.
