Stockings 2014
We are getting close to Christmas so this is finish is none to soon!  With the arrival of our daughter this year we are finally staying home for Christmas, this means that we actually need stocking at our house this year!  I decided to make our stockings this year and had a jelly roll of Aspen frost by Basic Grey in the sewing room.

I used the template from Imagine Gnats and loosely used her tutorial, but used jelly roll strips instead.

They turned out great and I am excited to use them this year.  Now the hard part is deciding who gets each one!

Oh, and this another thing crossed off my Finish a long Q4 list (found here)!

Linking up to: Needle and Thread Thursday, Finish it up Friday


Finally – a Finish!


It has been a while since I have been able to sit down at my sewing machine, let alone my computer to get anything quilt related done.  I took on a few new classes at work which kept me busy along with doing some renovations around the house.  Suddenly I looked at the calender and realized it was April – how did that happen?

I will be giving some updates on the two rooms of the house we have been working on soon (they are both finally close to being finished), and I finished marking finals yesterday, yay!  Now I can finally get back into the sewing room and get working on some projects that have been long neglected.

The above pillow has actually been finished for a while and was done for an improv quilting challenge with my local Modern Quilt Guild.  It was done with some 2″strips that were leftover from the HST quilt from a while ago.  I also tried some quilt as you go with this as I was putting the strips down.

I love the quilted pillow and it lives in one of the rooms we have been working on – I will post pics of it in its home soon!  Now I just have to get the other pillow I have been working on finished:
