Gigglish Allsorts

This post has absolutely nothing to do with the kids TV programme from the 90s.

A bit of housekeeping. There’s three projects on the list to complete before Christmas and as of last night, that list is now two.

I finished off this Sew Together bag so now I have two for gifting. My remaining two projects are a bear wall hanging for himself which is now quilted but it needs binding and a hanging sleeve adding. The other thing is a cushion for my MIL which I keep forgetting about. I have this pieced star block so far but it needs a border and cushion-ising.

In the comments on my last post about the sewing machines (my garage looks like a machine repair shop at the moment), Wendy asked if I have a Smokey and a now-dead Smelly, what will I call my new Brother machine. As you can tell, my naming tradition is a bit tongue-in-cheek as I don’t really “get” it when people name their cars or machines, so staying with tradition, this is now called Scarface.

It was better than Scratchy which was my first thought.

I’ve had my black friday purchases delivered. I have got an idea for the bundle at the top already (Eclectic Elements 2) but I have two other quilts to make at least before I get round to it. The other bundle is Trail Mix by Bo Bunny which I got a little extra of the cream bear print to add to my bear fabric collection. No plans for this one yet. I’ve now got a fair few masculine prints and of course this helps top up my recently depleted brown prints reserve.

Also public service announcement, there’s just over a month to submit entry forms for 2015’s Quilt and Stitch Village. I think I will enter three categories this time, including the 3D one! This year they have a modern quilting category too if that floats your boat.

As I’ve not posted a photo of Hank for a couple of days, I thought I’d start losing readers if I didn’t put up another one pretty quick. Not sure what this strange expression I caught him doing this morning is about…

    The floral print on your Sew Together bag is beautiful. It’s going to be a total hit! LOVE LOVE LOVE your star “beginnings” too. That’s going to be a stunner.
