I have slowly but surely been getting better from the flu/sinus infection. We are still under construction, no heat, so we are more bundled and snuggly here. Its hard to sew with all those layers on!! A few days after Christmas I took a trip down to Manhattan Beach to visit my 94 year old Busia, a family friend and my brothers family. Pictured are my Busia, niece & Holly. She gave me a quilt her BFF made her a few years ago. Its in need of repair, but I know its a wonderful momento for her. I was honored to receive it! My Busia used to sew and I'm sure has passed the sewing gene to me, although she was more of a clothing sewer. There are no quilts made by her, unfortunately!! Pam, our dear friend/family was the recipient of the patchwork clock & I think she liked it! She made all the girls (& Dylan!) flannel pj bottoms and appliqued their initial to a tshirt, as pictured. Finally, I was able to finish a UFO that I started last spring using a Mail Bag pattern from Pink Chalk fabrics: http://www.pinkchalkfabrics.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=39_75_78&products_id=3 I have really needed a roomy bag, so I'm so glad to take that off my list and put it to use! Inside I used Jennifer Paganelli's Marie in aqua with Amy Butler's Full Moon Dot in slate. Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley in New Day was a great match for Sketchbook. Now to make a coordinating scarf! Looking forward to a productive and creative new year & can't wait until my sewing room is finished!!!!!
