Just got something done!

Well I have put the pedal to the metal as they say.  I got 6 scarves complete last night.  I made some minky scarves using the Missouri Star Quilt Co. YouTube video.  And it is quick and easy but not as easy as she makes it look.  Minky is a little different to work with.  Kinda slick and a little thick.  All and all very nice gifts and easy to whip up so I give it 5 stars :)

Still working on quilts 1/2 of one bound and ready to sandwich another.  Gonna be close on the time frame, but I work better under pressure. 

The you tube link is bellow if you have forgotten someone and need to whip up something nice give it a try.

Hello dear ones...

Well I have been quilting my fingers off (literally).  Two quilts all quilted and awaiting my favorite binding (insert sarcasm).  I have one more to cut piece, sandwich, quilt and bind before the big day!   Oh please let me get it done.  I have a big weekend and have not had the chance to sew.  My birthday (yeah yeah insert red face)  so we went out all day yesterday.  Today I have to study up for a forestry test next week.  Its a little harder to id trees without leaves so I need to brush up on my bark identification.  I know that sounds so thrilling!

This is how you take care of a rotary cutter run in when you do not have time to stop and find a band-aid!  yep that is how we roll!  All us hard core quilters are really worried about is not getting blood on the fabric and this worked pretty well! 

So I hope you are way more prepared with your gifts than I am and have some time to actually relax a little before Christmas (oh I also have not wrapped one present!)

Have a fabulous week and if I happen to actually finish something I will post pictures :)

Oh the Christmas train

Oh my the Christmas train is coming in way to fast.  I am quilting my fingers to the bone.  I am so bad at FMQ!  That will be on my New Years list to please learn better.  I just can't get my speed and the machine speed going the way it needs to be.  I have got the deer quilt about 1/2 done then two more and I am waiting on some fabric to finish the top and back of  another one.  I really don't think I am gonna make it and I have no clue what I will do about it.  I guess I can give I owe yous lol!  I will post pics of some finished items as soon as I have a finished item.

What are you guys scrambling to get done?

Oh how could I have forgotten head over to sew mama sew blog and check out the Dec3rd post soooooo many giveaways and it ends tomorrow!
