But, our realtor had an Open House today, so I had to put it all away and get everything spiffed up. Having a sewing room and not being able to keep it cluttered is the pits! Hopefully we can get this house under contract and sold soon, so we can stop showing it.
Here is what I was frantically working on - journal covers. I had wanted to make covers for a long time, and so started collecting fat quarters and one-fourth yards here and there. I was actually had a mission as I traveled around the state this fall facilitating my seminars as part of my Day Job. I now know every quilt shop from the tip of northern Idaho to her southern reaches. These journal covers were intended to make out of scraps, but I didn't have many scraps that blended well. Now I do!
Stitched in Color and you can find her tutorial here. This would make a fun Christmas gift for a daughter or niece or for the office Christmas Exchange.
I also finished up this Christmas table runner yesterday, too. It's made from this really rich fabric called Happy Christmas and designed by Fabric Freedom of London. It costs a little more than average, but it's such a high quality fabric, you can feel the difference and it's really nice to work with. I bought quite a bit when I had the chance, so more table runners or Christmas projects should be forthcoming.
Only three-fourths of a day left before the craft fair. Oh - I should say I was quite pleased when I saw one of the posters advertising the show. Apparently it's a juried show (I didn't know because I just blindly wanted to participate, so I applied.) They took one of the photos I submitted with the application and used it for their poster. That made my little heart sparkle for a bit!!!
So, wish me luck. I'm down to the wire.
