Ya'll someone told me it's only 99 days til Christmas! If you have things to make now's the time to get started. I sat down one afternoon this week and made this little Santa wallhanging. The pattern is #501 Old World Santa by Bloomin' Minds and is super fast to make. I stuck the pattern and some scrap fabrics in a plastic bag at home a couple of weeks ago and brought it to the mission with me. When I was missing a couple of pieces I thought I had put in I dug through my scrap bag here (don't you have a scrap bag with you everywhere you go?) and used the back of one fabric and another one fussy cut to finish the job. Seriously, only a couple of hours at most. You gotta' love that! And.....I did the machine quilting on this table runner, made the binding and put it on and all it needs now is to be washed so the flowers and leaves can fray. It's a raw edge applique piece and I want the edges to be fuzzy. I'd wash it here but the water is awful for laundry - my white things have some tough rust spots that I'll be spending some time trying to get out when I get home. I love this for the fall....I think it will go on my small bar in the kitchen.
