Placemats!

I finished up the placemats that I made for the LAMQG holiday swap. Chris got them last night and she loved them!  She had asked for something for her kitchen with blues, neutrals and a vaguely beachy vibe.

Place Mats

They are so simple and quick to sew up.  I used linen for the background fabric, Konas Teal and Coal and the light blue is a Moda Crossweave.

Corners

Corners!

The simple dense straight line quilting makes them lie nice and flat.

I’ll post a little pattern for these later this week. They would make a great Christmas gift for a friend!

In the sewing room…

I’m working on my holiday swap for the LAMQG meeting on Monday evening. We all picked names so we’re making something for a specific person. It really makes for a great swap when you know the recipient…

Swap Peek

Just a peek for now! More on that soon.

And check out the blocks that I’ve gotten back for Bee Imaginative.

Bee Blocks

Pretty great, right? I can’t wait to put this quilt together once I get all of the blocks… it’s going to be a good one!

Socks!

Hope you all enjoyed your long weekends! Here, the sewing machine has been busy but nothing to show right now. Though I do have some finished craftiness…

Finished Socks!

I knit socks! Cozy pretty socks that fit really well. This was my first time knitting socks and it won’t be my last.

By the way – I’m finally on twitter, follow me if you wanna!

Winner!

Thank you all for your nice comments about my quilt and the pattern being published! I have lots of plans for many patterns being available in the future but lots of leg work ahead of me before then.

Anyhow – getting down to business! The random number generator picked lucky number 41! Kate C. keep an eye out for an email from me!

Happy Monday to you all!
