Another Friday Mishmash – This, That and OMG
There are only four Fridays in November, and one is called Black Friday. That means time is ticking away on my November One Monthly Goal, and I’d better get a wiggle on. I have a few updates to share but they aren’t news worthy enough to be shared in their own post; thus the mishmash is revisited.
We found the fabric to use in Darlene’s pillow shams! I want to thank all of you for the suggestions that were made. One of them did lead us to the correct search term to find just the perfect choice. We even gave Darlene two choices, which I think is amazing since I had NO IDEA where to look.
The winning search term turned out to be ‘weathered wood planks” and was found in the “architecture area” of fabrics. Who even knew there was any of this available?! My mind was blown . . . and once I recovered I quickly ordered two yards. I haven’t done the MATH yet – oh no, more math – but we can always use some planks in our stash. HAHA!
Postcard from Sweden Fabric Update
When I fell in love with Shannon’s quilt, Postcard from Sweden who would have ever thought that I would actually move forward with making it?! Well, I rarely let any grass grow under my feet and Green Fairy Quilts was having a sale. So I ordered a whole bunch – literally, two – of solid fabrics.
Sue and I spent an exciting evening matching up the 36 colors to incorporate some of the new 37 – 2017 Kona fabric colors. You will be proud to know that we do not have to buy any additional fabrics – except for some borders that I’ll add. My quilt is going to have a slightly more orange/red hue as I replaced a few of the pinks with orange. I hope that works out, but truly no one else will know or care.
Regatta Quilt 2018 Sew Along
Lest you think that I have forgotten about the upcoming sew along that starts in January, 2018, I have not. The New Year is upon us in just over six weeks! Holy moly – how can that be? We have decided on our color palate and have ordered fabric. Hmm, there seems to be a common thread lately – new fabric. If you would like more details about the quilt along, you are welcome to join in. I’m not sharing a photo of the fabric yet but soon . . .
Christmas Stocking Needed STAT
Remember the wild idea I had to remake a stocking for Dominic? My “friend” Peggy, suggested I take apart this stocking that I purchased for him in order to quilt it. That is a fabulous idea, and now it is time to do so. I wish that same “friend” was here to guide me as to exactly how to do that! Yeah, she’s still my friend but what was I thinking?! Now it has a cute cross stitch design on it thanks to Sue, and it is back on my plate. Oh yeah, they want pictures of him IN his new stocking soon so could I get it finished? (Those are my sentiments, not mom and dad’s). Sooooooo, I need to get that wrapped up ASAP.
Another Commission Quilt?
We may have another commissioned quilt to start working on soon. It is not a rush job but I still would like to get it completed soon if we can work out the details. That also means ordering more fabrics! I’ll share more about this when I’m able to. Thank you Lauren for sharing our information with your friend. We love you, honey! If you made it this far in reading along, you deserve a gold star. ♦ Or a diamond because I couldn’t find a star.
