Little accomplishments.....

I needed to say I got something done.
So, the embroidery, the bindings and even  hanging sleeves were added to these two little flags that  I started recently. 
The pumpkin is done just in time for the season.
and here's the1776 flag. 
Then I thought I would pull what I thought was a jelly roll and make the jelly roll challenge quilt, but what I had was this....

  2. those windows are so fun!! I love live mannequins and the TV theme is a blast.
    Your pumpkin flag is so cute for fall and the patriotic flag is beautiful.

  3. The pumpkin is so cute! I've lost my sewing mojo for awhile now. Heading for Ruthie's Shipshawana retreat next week, maybe that will give me a boost. Have you considered Ruthie's retreat?

  4. For the 5'' strips - cut each piece in half lengthwise and join ends together - then you will have your jelly roll strips :)


I said I wouldn't......

I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
