I’m in the sewing room (well that’s where the computer is) but my plans for getting a start on finishing those quilting projects has been pushed back a bit. My parents are stopping on their way through to take me out to lunch so a very good reason not to get an early morning start.
For first I will see if I can finish sorting the boxes and baskets of yarny things that I shoved I the sewing room. And then I will see if I can get a little wallhanging layered. Don’t know that I’ll start quilting on it today since I want to work on this quilt.
It’s the Winter Wishes Gift Tag design I did for Hoffman California Fabrics. I loved this gray/silver metallic colorway and have most of the actual fabrics from the quilt but will adding in a few fabrics from the stash to fill in for the fabrics I’m missing. The outer border fabric is so pretty in real life – the image above doesn’t do it justice. But in my opinion, you can never go wrong with the Hoffman cardinal prints – I love them all. I’m going to have to go shopping for some black buttons for the top of the gift tags.
Speaking of the cardinal prints – the other project I want to finish this winter is the very first quilt design I ever did for Hoffman California Fabrics — Snowglobes. Below is just the image of the design – my version I still need to finish the applique for 2 or three blocks so that I can then set it together.
Many of my blog readers said they’d be hanging out in their sewing rooms ringing in the new year working on their own projects they want to finish up as a jump start to tacking those WIPs. So if you are one of those people, leave a comment sharing what you are working on and if possible, a link in your comment to images of what you are working on since it’s always fun to see the work of others.
