Just found a link-up called ‘Occupy Your Sewing Room’ (see my side bar to follow it). The challenge is to occupy your sewing room for a day between Dec 3-10, to do some of that Christmas sewing – link up – and be eligible for some fabulous prizes!
So, I’m linking up.
And here’s what I did:
Down Winterberry Lane was planned to be a ‘together’ project with Jo from Pieceful Afternoon to be shared with you all on our joint site Cross Border Quilters. Well circumstances interfered, and Jo hasn’t been able to get to her sewing machine for quite a while now. But I really wanted to get this done for Christmas, so I got started. You can follow the progress of this quilt over at CBQ.
When it was finished, I couldn’t believe how big it was. Somehow the ‘finished size’ disclaimer on the package just went over my head. So, it sat for a bit, waiting for me to decide what to do with it – and then last week when I was decorating the house, I thought…..hmm…wouldn’t a Christmas shower curtain be nice. So yesterday I spent most of the day measuring and cutting and measuring and sewing and measuring and cutting and sewing – I lined the quilt, added tabs, hemmed it and got it hung up. We did take a break in the middle of the day to take the dog out for a walk – it was just gorgeously sunny out there and we just couldn’t miss an opportunity to get outside for a bit without rain dripping down our necks!
Anyway, I’m thrilled with this!
Happy decorating! Blessings, Peg
