Getting Ready for Santa

Getting ready for Santa! I've had these ultra 80's maybe christmas stocking panels hidden in the bottom of my stash just waiting for my motivation to make good use of them. It's finally happened. I have all eight of them cut out. I used a cute red snow globe print for the lining and some red, green and blue glittery christmas print for the backs. Now I just have to figure out exactly how I am going  to put everyones names on them. There are seven of us in the family and I have eight stockings, so I have one 'oopsie' allowed. Not too bad for thrift store fabric purchases. 

As I am typing this I am waiting for my power to go POOF and out. We are having crazy winds tonight. Last check on weatherbug they were up to 47mph. The forecast says they could get up to 70mph overnight. Hopefully the electricity and the roof stay on. 

 Bye for now!

This morning the girls and I met Jenny in town for a visit to a christmas craft show. After the show we got home and were bitten by the crafting bug. Not a lot of housework was done. But a lot of creative messes were made.

I machine sewed the bindings to the front of the Neptune quilt and the little blue baby blanket. Now all these two need are the binding handstitched to the back and then it's time for my favorite step of quilt making: Washing and Drying to see the nifty crinkles on the finished product.
