There has not been much sewing going on around here - again - this past week. I am beginning to sound like a broken record.
One of my fairly regular Christmas gifts seems to be a jury summons. I always love how it comes in with the wonderful Christmas cards. Anyway, this past week saw me on jury duty and actually serving on a jury. It was a short one this time, unlike the 5 month one I was on in 1997. It still took up my treasured time, but I am free for another year now. Yeah.
My sewing moments were short, but I finally managed to finish up my Sally quilt that I started about 6 months ago. It has a soft flannel backing and an all over quilt design so it is nothing fancy, but I am pleased with the finish. It's one more completed UFO in my books too.
When I do the quilts for the grandchildren I always like to include a label with their newborn photo on it.
Goal setting for February is going to be tight as we have a busy one, but I think I will finish up a Schnibbles from several years ago. It is done in my favorite fabric line, Boutique by Chez Moi.
One other small project that I finished was a pincushion. Beth had made one for herself and shared the material with me to make one. It is a nice heavy one with the crushed walnut shells. I loved using the selvage edge on the fabric too.
Lastly, I sewed up a couple of X&+ blocks for our February queen who requested bright + and gray, black and white Xs.
I am hoping to get a little more sewing in this coming week. We will see. You never know what will pop up around here.
