... Go by the wayside
I had several projects lined up for retreat that would require large design walls -- at least larger than I have at home. But in the end I left those at home since I decided I should finish a few small projects and work on Christmas gifts.
First up yesterday I enlarged the tote pattern and quickly assembled another one. My little travel Janome did not handle the stitching quite as nicely as my Baby Lock at home, though so I have plans to make another one for Secret Santa when I get home Thursday.
|Tote #2 - New and Improved|
My first gift pick turned out to be an oh-so-soft pink and gray wool scarf with matching gloves. It was stolen by the person who brought it because she couldn't bear to part with it! The nerve!
I ended up with a Frivols mini quilt kit.
This one is Polka Dots & Paisleys (Minick & Simpson for Moda) in luscious patriotic colors.
The kit will make this sweet 26" x 26" mini.
Guess what I'll be working on tomorrow! I haven't been able to finish any of the other projects I brought for one reason or another. And I don't think my small travel machine is the best choice for quilting the Christmas table runners. So why not start something new!!
