And a few circles for the week for Quilty 365......I think I missed a day or two. But who is counting? I am aiming for 300 to make a nice size throw. While going through fabrics, I kept finding small pieces that were not wide enough for a circle. What to do when I wanted to include it? A light bulb went off when I played around with a layout.
Anyway, this week I made:
a red etched flower, chocolate for those critical days, scissors and thread for my passion, a luscious paisley, serene lavender and purple, a bit of old world lace print, and a memory of my Dad.
Dad was a fisherman.....so the shirt print of fish is for him. Family vacations were often to a fishing camp with the beach nearby. I remember hunting for seashells on Sanibel Island, and another time waking up one morning to find a small shark in the kitchen floor! I also remember how mad Mother was about that one! I don't know what happened to the shark.....I grabbed my flip flops and went to the beach where it was safe.
And now it is time to pick up the sewing room and wrap the last gift before I can enter the kitchen tomorrow and begin the prepping. Sir Old Man will be the house boy for the clean up.......it's too dangerous to allow him to stir or cook! That's okay, I get to be boss and make a mess.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and happy stitching.
