Saturday evening at 11:30 p.m. I had just put the finishing touches of wrapping presents when I said to my DH, "Have you got anything for your mother for her birthday?" He promptly replied, "No, when is it?" Which I promptly replied, "Dec. 19." This gave him a completely terror stricken look...wish he'd look like that when it was my birthday......
So anyway, so ensued the beginning of the following pictures, he asked me nicely and I agreed to make his mother something....I treated myself today some lovely tin shelves from Hobby Lobby for my effort to produce this:
Design: a collaboration of many charts from Little House Needleworks
Designer: Dianne Williams
Fabric: 28 ct. Buttermilk Jobelan
Finished as: Flatfold
Can anyone guess which charts I used to come up with this? Well.....I'll just tell you straight away...it was the from the freebie chart...Small House and Quilt Time Sampler. I did the arrangement of the motifs myself. I think it couldn't have turned out any better, I really do like just about everything about it. It had been awhile since I've made a flatfold, so I had to think about the finishing and used my own tutorial! LOL!
The backing fabric was from the remnant bin at JoAnn's that I had dug out this summer...just saving for something.....and today was the day!
I'm finishing the final touches of a Crazy Exchange return exchange today and then hopefully I'll get to the exchange stitching I need to finish up/get started on...I have 2 fair and square partners this round and I also have 2 SBEBB exchanges all due the first couple of weeks in January....so I need to get my needles flying, huh?!
Until the next time....may your day be BRILLIANT and your needles FLASHING through your fabric!
