I've been too busy EATING to have time to sew :O) Last Saturday I bought Ree Drummond's book and it is FABULOUS! I think there is two or three receipes in the book I would probably never make, but everything else looks so yummy and the things i've tried are great!!! If you like cooking from scratch and all the fattening things in life ... then this is the book for you!
I've promised my husband i'll only make one of her items a week from now on, but oh how i could make something different every night!
This weekend hubby works so there will be plenty of time to sew. Last weekend i started working on pillow cases for the 1 million pillow case challenge and i made 5 and now i have another 8 cut out so i hope to finish those this weekend, get my red, white and blue table cloth quilted and bound and then maybe get my last shopping bag put together so that i have 2 to take to the store instead of just one. It's going to be bitter cold here, highs in the single digits, so a great weekend to stay in, sew and cook!

So tonight i made a little pillow to go with my quilt and it is very cute! I just wish I had made it bigger...but after i finished the pillow i decided ... hmmm ... i have enough fabrics to make a table topper ... so i think i'll be making a table topper to go with the quilt and pillow! Now i just can't wait to get my quilt quilted :O) Here's a picture of the pillow on the pieced top and it sorta gets lost with the top, but i'm thinking after it's quilted the pillow should stand out just fine.
Have a great week-end everyone!

So last night i decided i wanted to go thru some fabric and find something fun to make. Well, do ya ever walk in to a quilt store and immediately fall in love with fabric so you buy it ... then the next day you think ... why did i buy that fabric?!? Well I did that about 1 1/2 years ago and have been pondering what to make ... so last night i pulled it out and tonight i made this ...
Well, it's a bit late and it's been a long day, so have a great Thursday :o)

Well, I didn't do a whole lot this weekend, but i did get my January Schnibble cut out and made the flying geese. And if you remember, i so hate flying geese because mine are never squared up right and they seem to be flying every whichway! So, last week i ordered the Mini Fit to be Geese ruler that Nicole talked about from Open Gate Quilts ... and let me just tell you ... it is FABULOUS! My geese look perfect and I'm so glad i bought it, so THANKS NICOLE!
So this evening when hubby goes to work I hope to get my January Schnibble put together ... not sure I'll get the borders on, but I will sure try!

I totally forgot to post my December Schnibble, so here it is ... it was suppose to be a tuffet, you know the small pincushions, but I didn't think I'd use them, so i decided to super-size mine and made a pillow that measures 20" x 34" for my nephew Matthew. It's made out of scraps from his quilt and i hope he loves it!
I'm so glad it's January and I can get back to some serious sewing! Other than Matthew's pillow, I did absolutely no sewing in December. OH ... and did ya see the January Schnibble??? It is awesome! The pattern is called Madeline and the sample is done in Rouenneries by French General. I ordered this material and pattern back in October because it looks so awesome, so I can't wait to get started.
Hope everyone has a great weekend and it's warmer where you are than here in Ohio ... 13 degrees ... brrrr.
