I like it sitting on my coffee table with these little additions. I think she must have hooked it in an 8.5 or a 9 - I need to use wider cuts more often because the few times I've done so, I really, really liked it! Thank you SO much for your generosity Lauren!
Last night I finished hooking this little 12" tree skirt. I decided it would also work well for a chair mat because the tiny hole in the middle is hardly noticeable, and if I did that it might be easier to find when Christmas rolls around again.
I've also been doing a bit of sewing. I made these five blocks for the sew along that Temecula Quilt Co. is sharing right now. The next set of instructions have been posted so I need to get busy and stitch them up too.
I've finished the forth 4" block that Pam Buda posted for her sew along - I found a really fun way to sew these together on a new blog I just visited, so I'll try and get this done soon. My friend Janet also sewed hers together differently than what Pam suggested - go here to see how cute they are!
I cut strips to make the Scrappy Trip Around the World that's been taking blogland by storm. Mine will be half the size suggested by Bonnie Hunter so my strips measure 1-1/2" x 10" . I also cut squares to make the snowball blocks for the quilt center that Darlene is sharing. Haven't done any sewing on these two projects yet......
So much to do!
