A day of Sewing!

I have been sewing up a storm! My 4 day Goal List is getting shorter! I know these first 2 things were not on my 4 day list, but they are something that I had planned on for January. I made 2 pillowcases for the boys. I made the Ninja Turtle one last night for Hunter and the one with wildlife is for Andrew. I made it this morning. Very quick and easy and they love them.




This is my MONTH-BY-MONTH SAMPLER. I added the border on it this morning. It isn't very big, just lap size. I also cut the binding and have it ready for quilting.

Here is my COWBOY HAT AND BOOTS Quilt. Richard and both boys are fighting over it. I added the border to it this morning and like the other one, I also cut the binding. This one will be hand quilted, since I have a beautiful quilting stencil for the borders that has cowboy boots on it. This quilt is Queen size.
So back to my list...

~ FRIENDSHIP BASKETS ~ Add border and setting triangles.

~ COWBOY HATS AND BOOTS ~ Add border DONE!

~ MONTH-BY-MONTH SAMPLER ~ Add border DONE!

~ THIMBLEBERRIES VILLAGE SAMPLER ~ Finish last 3 blocks.

****Extra**** 2 pillowcases for the boys DONE!

I am half way finished with my list, but now I will slow down, because the other 2 won't be fun. I so dread the Village Sampler, but I would love to have it done so I don't have to think about it anymore. The quilt is actually pretty, I just don't like working on it. It's 3pm now, so maybe I will have a chance this evening to work on another one...

Wow you are just flying through all your things that you wanted to get done in four days. Soon you'll be ready to start new projects and it won't even be the new year yet.

Kristie that stuff all looks fantastic. I like that you're doing your binding right away so that it's done for when you get them quilted. Wow, so what else is on your January adgenda?
