Another Bright Idea

I'm cranking them out today....

My 3 Pay It Forward gifts are DONE!!! So Angie, Christina and Tristin - they will be in the mail to you on Monday.

My chicken table topper is getting there - 1 more chicken to do, quilt it (I'm thinking I am going to practice my hand quilting on this one), sew the eyes on and it is done. I put a log cabin block from the same fabrics in the center - maybe tonight I'll get the last chicken done and get the 3 rows sewed together.


And Jessie asked for a little quilt for her room - in pink of course, so how can I refuse? I have some 2 1/2 inch strips left over from this quilt, and I am practicing making Log Cabin blocks. 3 done so far, and the 4th one I got the colors backwards - LOL - so that means quality time with my seam ripper. I'm hoping to get 9 blocks total out of all the scraps I have but....


And of course, Todd put in a 13 hour day at work, so I did chores, weeded some flower beds (but not all of them) and cleaned out the filter in my water garden.


See ya,

Kris

You've been busy...and not just in the sewing room. All that overtime, yikes. Everything pretty much shifts to your shoulders. You are quite a woman, Kris! Hope all is well.

Your chicken table topper is adorable, I love it! That little pink quilt will be so pretty and cute! I made one years ago for my daughter--it got loved to pieces, many, many pieces. I think I have one left, LOL! Have fun at the quilt shop tomorrow, I'll be there with ya---in spirit, anyway!

Love the Chicken table topper - enjoy the hand quilting! My daughter loves pink too - the log cabin design will be a great way to use up all those little pink pieces. Hope the overtime settles down soon!
