We went to church, we welcomed family, we opened presents, we ate too much food, we laughed and we cried. I love Christmas. :)
I'm not sure why but when all the celebrating is over and all the family members have returned to their respective homes I always get the urge to clean and organize. I want to clean out drawers and closets, weed out the old and the outgrown and the why-in-the-world-did-I-ever-think-I-wanted-that stuff. I really, really need to go through every single thing in my sewing room and I might just do that in the next month when the weather will keep me indoors. But for today I have a few patterns that I've either made already, or never will make, that need new homes. If you're a follower and you think you might want one or more of these leave me a comment with the numbers of the one(s) you want. If more than one person is interested in one of them I'll draw names on Sunday. If only one person is interested you'll automatically get it. And if no one wants it (poor rejected thing!) I'll put it on the giveaway table at guild.
Won by Mrs. Pickles!
#1 Santa's Midnight Runner (this is a long, skinny wall hanging that I've made and which hangs in my sunroom) It's about 17 x 52 and has both piecing and applique.
Won by Sheila!
#2 Lilly Mae's Basket Quilt...I haven't made this one. It's a little quilt about 18 x 23 and is pieced.
Won by Carrie!
#3 Peace, Love, Joy...Pincushion I've made this one - it's a small wool pincushion, is fast and easy, and has both applique and embroidery.
Won by Lea!
#4 Abbey Lane "The Bungalow Bag" I made this last summer - it's roomy without being bulky and I love it! It shows bought handles but I made fabric handles and used a bright spring fabric that's really cute.
Won by Gill!
#5 Old Crimson Clove...a Sue Spargo pattern...36 x 31...I haven't made this one. The background is pieced but it's mostly applique.
Won by Sharon at Vrooman's Quilts!
#6 Sage Country Christmas Tree...I haven't made this one either...it's 48 x 63 and appears to be intricate piecing. I wouldn't recommend it for a beginner (which is why I didn't make it!)
If you're a follower and you want one or more please leave me the numbers of the ones you want - it will help when I draw names. And stay posted - I plan to have more in the next couple of weeks!
