October is basically over! One more day left and then on to November.... 2011 is flying by rather quickly. The only good thing.... next weekend at this time I will have my hour back!! It's been missing since March and I'll be soooooooo glad when it returns.
I've been very busy working on my 25 Weeks of Christmas units.... I made 4 placemat and napkin sets.....( just need to stitch the bindings down) several mini quilt panels... a whole bunch more of the ever addictive microwave bowl potholders.... bitty blocks for november and the bitty calendar block swap.... a fabric scrabble board and carry bags for the letters and the game itself.... this was made from a fabric panel... it's a full size board. i found the letters and the letter holders on ebay for 5 bucks...And A spikey soft ball made from 60 3" triangles of fabric scraps.
photos of everything are on flickr.........
I pulled some fabrics for another placemat set and 2 pillowcases.......... those should get done this week.....i also have fabric pulled for sock sack sets.... I'll need 4 sets... in a knitting related theme.... maybe be done with those next week too! I need to make some drawstring bags to hold the goodies for the little ones yet also. I think I need 5 of those...........
I've used up quite a bit of stash and a lot of scraps.... still a long way to go though.... I won't meet my yarn stash goal but I have used up quite a bit.... I only managed to complete 13 ufo's this year. I don't know if I'll get time to complete any more before the end of the year... but maybe.... I have some placemats and small table mats that might be completed.......... the main thing is I've not added a ton of stuff to the UFO box!!!
Anyone watch that new show Once Upon A Time?? I kinda like it!!
Ok... I guess that's it til next time!
October is gone and December will be here before you know it!! 56 days til the jolly man comes!!
heres a few pics to hold you til you get over to flickr
