I wish you lived closer too. Over the years I've lost all but one of my sewing friends and she lives too far away to see very often.

Beautiful work Judith! Your cat made me chuckle. Our fur babies want to be involved too!

Beautiful work Judith. Sorry about your embroidery machine Heather, you haven't had it that long have you? I love your bookmarks.

I am going to be working on my shotgun shell project. I brought them with me to my moms so we can figure how to cut them. So my goal for this weekend is to get them all cut and ready to go and hope I can go get my wood signs and stain them. I'm trying to stay busy at my moms while we are getting showings on our house.

Turns out the shotgun shells are harder for me to cut to the right size then I thought. So my dad is using one of his machines to cut them for me. He knows I'm making a project but not for who lol! He is going to be so excited when I give it to him for Christmas. I also started another tie blanket. I only have 2 more sides to tie and it will be done.

Judith, your quilts are lovely. I can spot a Kim Dielh pattern miles away! LOL I just love her patterns and fabrics. Did you follow her Simple What's Not Club at your local quilt shop?

Carole -- I didn't do the Simple Whatnots club. It was too pricey and I already had way too much stash to buy more. I was in a Jo Morton group and we made all the little quilts in several of her books. This year we decided to do something different so we are doing a Kim book. My sewing room was unusable for a couple of months due to orphan kittens but I'm finally able to get back in there and play catchup.

I finished my last tie blanket, worked on some more of my diamond painting project, painted my letters for my husband, dad, and brother, and painted more on my stoking holder! Whoop whoop! It has been busy these last 2 days working on Christmas presents but I am getting closer to being done! Now that we have added packing and moving to the mix, I really feel the pressure. I'm going to working on some more crochet today. Fingers crossed I can finish a bunch more.

Today I uploaded crochet patterns for sale online. I have a list I am working from to include finishing a crochet wrap and quilting the first square I ever made to frame. Still very much a novice quilter. But these are the things I have finished in the past couple of weeks: repurposing a kitty litter container with rope and paint into a farmhouse style trash can for the office, and sewing 'Rufus the Rabbit' from an old jacket way past it's "sell-by" date with worn elbows; his hat and vest are crocheted.







This jacket has been worn hiking in the mountains and to Georgia barrier islands since 2009. I couldn't trash it because it has too many memories.





Keep shining!

Judith,

Your quilt is beautiful. My goal is to get way better than I am at quilting right now. Kitties always, always have to be included in the photo. The classic photo bombers!

Keep shining!

Krista,

I love that your gifts are handmade! Those are the best treasures. Crafting is so good for the brain, raising dopamine. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate. This too shall pass!

Keep shining!

Natalie -- Cute bunny! How much rope did it take to cover the bucket? I have a stack of those litter containers.

Judith,
Thank you. To cover the bucket I used approximately 75 feet of .375 inch polypropylene rope and quite a few hot glue sticks. For the little accent sections I used remnant sisal pieces. These buckets are so sturdy and useful after kitty has used up the litter.

Keep shining!

Thanks Natalie! I love the buckets; they get used for a lot of things: holding various potting soils, week buckets when gardening, hauling water camping, holding feed, etc. etc. etc. They came in real handy during our drought when I was hauling gray water from the washing machine out to the garden. At about 50 gallons per load it kept our trees alive.

Natalie, those buckets are cute! You would never know that it's a kitty litter bucket. That's a great way to repurpose! I also love your bunny. He's adorable! I got some more painting done on my stocking holder. I'm going to work on some more painting today.

Krista,
I love your stocking holder! He has personality and those snowflakes are magic! Thank you for the kind comments on my repurposing projects. So many things look like anything other than discards.

Keep shining!

Natalie - Love the new garbage container and rabbit - how creative you are!!!

Krista - your reindeer is adorable!

Julie - I didn't have my embroidery machine long at all - only a couple years. But, my aunt had it for about 20 before me and she bought it used. I do miss is though because it did a much nicer job sewing than my other machine.

Here's my manure hauling project all finished:

It's harder to take a picture of your hand than I thought it would be LOL!!

Here's the other BIG project I'm working on:


I finally have over 400 squares of fabric cut to make a quilt for my husband for Christmas.

Heather,
I love your fingerless gloves! How much fun it will be to jingle the bell! Crochet is one of my favorite things, too. I love how portable it is. 400 squares should make a nice size quilt that your husband will surely love!

Keep shining!
Natalie

Heather, your fingerless gloves look cozy and super cute with the bell. You have been super busy cutting fabric. Those squares look beautiful. Please share a picture once you finish!

Thank you Judith and Natalie!

I left my deer project at my mothers, but I will be heading to her house on Friday and plan to finish it then! I'm so excited! In the mean time I'm going to work on some more crochet and packing!

Finished the rest of my stocking stand. All that's left is nailing it together. I'm hoping my dad will have a chance to help me this weekend, so I can have it all done! It's gen a super fun project. Now onto finishing the rest before Christmas.
