I decided I needed to work on some projects for Christmas. I would like to share this experience with all of you but… as the person/people I am making them for make up the majority of followers for this blog I decided I best not reveal too much. But I think I will document my work and then post after the fact because I am finding some of the work challenging and fun!
The first secret project is a sewing project. Not a quilting one, but a sewing project! I am not a
sewer, seamstress! Technically I CAN sew but I am not very good at it. For some reason quilting doesn’t count. So this could be an expensive mistake. I drove half an hour out-of-town, spend and hour and a half hunting down the perfect fabric, thread and other tools required (no comment on how much I spent!), drove a half and hour home, started cutting the fabric and realized I may have bitten off more than I can chew! Here is the fabric I chose… I love it and hope I have leftovers to use for something else too!
The 2nd project is a quilting project. It was an impulse buy at the fabric store where I bought the above fabric and I am really looking forward to starting this one. BUT I made myself a deal, if I want to work on this I have to finish the sewing project. No sneak peek pictures of this one for you… I don’t want to give it away.
I also have a 3rd secret project that I have had in my “stash” of projects for a long time. It is also a quilting project but also an applique project. I am pretty new to the applique thing so it could be interesting. No sneek peak of this one either.
With any luck, I will have all three secret projects ready for Christmas!
With even more luck, I will have them finished for THIS Christmas!
So I ask you to wish me (more) luck!
What are you working on for Christmas?
