UFO completing weather
November 18, 2014 @ 12:59 AM
Welcome to winter! Yesterday it snowed all day so after some cleaning it was a day at the sewing machine. If this keeps up I may finish all those UFOs--well, maybe if it keeps up for another 20 years!

We have received some fabric called 'Chalk Board' that has panels with words of wisdom.

We cut these apart and with the help of some stitchwitchery made a few pictures.

I want to make a tote with the remaining but have been trying to determine a pattern I would like to use--this has been going on for a week so I better make up my mind soon.

In keeping with the inspirational fabric we also got in some of the new Peanuts line: Tips from the Gang.

This has a book panel

and an overall print

check these and the coordinates out on our kids fabric page: http://www.wilsonscalico.com/fabrics-kids.html

About two years ago I started two large projects, painting the house and making a blue quilt. This month both were one step closer to being finished

The porch ceiling needs scraped and painted--next summer.

This of course needs to be quilted. But at least the pieces are not collecting dust anymore.

Today promised to be another chilly day so more projects should be completed. Maybe that tote will finally come together!

Remember November 19 is 'Have a Bad Day' Day so if things go wrong tomorrow you will know why. It is followed closely by November 20's Absurdity Day. Enjoy them both!

Remember this month we are featuring the Homespun towels, they make great hostess gifts: just as towels, aprons, potholders, warmers...
