2018 NOV - SHILLYSHALLY SWAP

I am back yall!! It’s been a busy summer and eventful summer. After loosing a dear friend to cancer in August I returned home to my daughter-in-law’s hospitalization for complications during her pregnancy. She was one sick girl with pancreatitis, liver, and gall bladder issues. My granddaughter was born prematurely on Sept 8th and she was in NICU for the next 30 days. During this time I have been on Nana duty daily with my 16 mo old grandson. Our precious Mattie was not due until October 24th. She is home now and doing very well. She is a teeny little thing! My dil has since had gall bladder surgery and is recovering from that. I just have my Ollie for a couple of days a week now or whenever I am needed! Soooo… I am back to swapping with the Farmgirls!! Yay!

I use my Shilly’s daily!! Love them and they are so handy! Hope I have some Farmgirls interested in this swap!

~~~~~~~~~~

The ShillyShally Swaps are so much fun! 

Here we go! Another swap for NOVEMBER! These are such nifty things to have around the house for so many uses!

For those wondering just what a ShillyShally is:
A ShillyShally you ask? Well it is simple! It is a 36x36 cut of fabric which can be used for cooling your neck to covering your lap whilst you shell peas! It can cover your head or it can be used to wipe little hands and faces! There are so many uses for a ShillyShally!

Each ShillyShally will be hemmed and the embellishing will be left to the receiver.

NOV THEME: Fabric with Brown....think leaves, pumpkins, fall! 

FEB - Red
MAR - Green / Insects
APR - Blue / Showers
MAY - Purple / Flowers
JUN - Yellow / Sunshine
JUL - Red White Blue / Patriotic - cancelled
AUG - Beige / Pets - cancelled
SEP - Teal / Vintage - cancelled
OCT - Orange / Pumpkins -cancelled

NOV - Brown / Leaves, Harvest, Pumpkins, Turkeys
DEC - Christmas!

GUIDELINES FOR SHILLYSHALLY:

1. Choose a 36x36 piece of Cotton fabric. Prewash your fabric to cover any skrinkage prior to cutting so it will be true to size. Trim any selvage prior to hemming.
2. You will put a hem around the ShillyShally using embroidery, ribbon, rickrack, lace, decorative stitch, etc.
3. You will include 1-3 embroidery floss for your swap partner to use to embellish her ShillyShally
4. Please, no other tucks required. Let's keep it simple!
5. Please post pictures of your ShillyShally when you receive it so all the other Farmgirls can see our beauties!

DETAILS:

Sign Up Deadline: Oct 30th

Anyone else in on this swap! I love the Shilly Shallies I have received! They are easy to make and fun to receive. I have so many uses for mine! I keep one in the car at all times to 'cover' stuff up or to keep the sun off things! They work in a pinch if you dont have a window screen to cover your steering wheel! It is a live saver here in Texas!!

Oh guess what else, I laid one on my lap as I was sewing. I was ready to go get groceries, waiting on hubby, so I thought I would stitch a few minutes. It was a good solution to catch the ship's of thread, fabrics, etc.

Good idea! I always have thread glitter all over me when I sew! Lol! I have one I use when I am trimming patterns! I multitask and do those things while watching/listening to the tv!

Debbie - your Shilly Shally went out today.

Marilyn - I got my Shilly Shally yesterday and I love the fall colors and the tea you sent. It looks like the tea is nestled in a bed of fallen leaves.

Perhaps you and I need to shop for sewing things. My serger is old. I had to completely rethread it. Of course I could not find the long tweezers that came with it, all those years ago. Now every tension is maxed out and still one thread wants to play loop de lou, on The bottom!

I am thinkinng I need a new Serger, too. Mine is working, now - I just rethreaded 3 of the 4 thread paths.In fact it is working quite well, but it is about 14-15 years old - from Walmart. The good ones are so expensive now. I wanted to purchasae my cousin's when she passed away - it was 1 year old and a very good Janome. Her husband sold it on Craigslist for less than I would have given him. GRRRRRRR!

Can you unthread yours, set all the knobs to the middle setting, and rethread? Would that give you any leeway for tension?

I have done that Linda. Mine is a Bernina serger, that I bought back in the dark ages, probably 30 years ago. That was before they had one at walmart. It was awesome. But it has run too many million miles for me. I used to sew a lot of clothes for a sorority (often 40 or more dresses a rush season), fellow teachers, etc. I think I wore it out!

LOL! That's a lot of serging, Marilyn.

Debbie - Haven't you gotten your Shilly Shally yet? I thought it would have been there by now.
