This week will be a short one because I feel kind of…flaky.
The fleece nine-patch is still on the design wall and still a work in progress, there’s a winter wall hanging that I need to put hanging corners on, and I have my quilts set aside for the modern quilt guild meeting tonight.
Oh, and I also started a mini tree skirt because our tiny tree needs one. I’m working loosely off a tutorial posted on The Magic Bean. The main fabric is called Merry Main Street from Alexander Henry Fabrics. The solids are a mix of things from JoAnn. I think there’s a Kona in there, but there are also two sparkly solids.
I was trying not to be too matchy, matchy, plan-y, plan-y when I was putting this together which means I went without the design wall because mine was already full. It wasn’t until I got it most of the way put together that I realized my oops. Oops! At this point, I don’t care. I’m still a little short in the front to back width so I need another two rows of nine patch – one for each end. I’ve got my fingers crossed for an end of the week finish.
My other project for the week is a birthday gift for my Mom. Don’t worry, she already knows what she’s getting. The Boo is incredibly excited that her Nana is going to have a hat just like hers. She has reminded me of this fact several times a day…just in case I forgot. The bigger (and slightly more exciting news, at least from my perspective), is that I no longer have to chase balls of yarn around a purple plastic bag. Dearest Pirouette, why didn’t I buy you sooner?
I may have become a flake this week, but I doubt the others have. Why not stop by Freshly Pieced and see what the others were up to?
