I was trying sooooo hard not to make this the three year Christmas project, but I don't know if I can pull it off or not! We started this fun Alex Anderson quilt last year. I was determined to get it done this year, and actually it is further along than this picture shows! Jan helped me get the green cord and all of the light bulbs placed. But I still haven't stitched down the cord and finished the last few black "sockets". Betsy has even said she'd work it in to be quilted for us. Somehow, life just kind of happened the last week or so and progress has ground to a halt. Maybe next week?
So, what has
been happening? Tomorrow, I'll put up a picture of a great tree skirt we made using a 60 degree pattern. Quick and fun! Then, Saturday, I'll put up a picture of something we have on the design wall right now, but I might actually get it put together before the picture.
Otherwise, we've been selling fabric, cleaning up messes and trying to give the new stuff a home! We had a great Tea Party yesterday with probably about 20 or so party-goers over the 2 hour stretch. What fun! Everybody's been loving our Great Gadget this month. There's a picture on the website.
The next couple of days should be loads of fun. Tomorrow, Suz is doing the portfolio covers for Make It and Take It (I'm hoping to get to do this one!) And then Tracey has the last class for her Victoria Bag. Saturday, Velina is teaching two "Do You EQ?" classes. And we've been trying to get our Bookcase Boutique set up - there are lots of great gift ideas and some wonderful things made by the staff and family!
One or two more things to do before I hit the hay. Have a great weekend coming up! More pictures tomorrow!!
