I have been planning and scheming with a spool of thread...
It's my new favorite: Aurifil variegated thread 4654 in 28 wt. And I gave it a first try the other night, on a patchwork of AGF Pure Elements set against my "Stamped" print from Paperie.
I've got bigger plans in store, but this was a great practice run with the thread and doubled as a quick hostess gift (potholder. stuffed with three layers of insulated batting!) Did I show you the Tall Tall Trees cushion I made a few weeks back?
(The Tall Tall Trees pattern is in my etsy shop, btw.) But for this cushion I widened the sashing so the pillow measures 20" x 12". Love it!
Here's another little pattern from my etsy shop that I'm revisiting:
A mouse doll quilt in Paperie is finished ~ now I just need a mouse!
Big congratulations to the winner of the Minted giveaway... and thank you to all who entered. If you haven't visited Minted lately I think you'll be surprised at the gorgeous range of products they sell all year long. So much more than stationery.
All my Christmas cards have been sent on their way, our tree is up, and as shocking as it may seem, there's only 10 days 'til Christmas! One more thing before I go. The dress Mia wore in our holiday photo pics was made by my friend Heather Hales Designs and was gifted to me totally by surprise. It's such a gorgeous dress ~ I just had to show you the hand-embroidered tag Heather stitched inside. Such an amazing detail.
