First I had issues with the design, trying to figure out just how to do this, with the three fabrics I had picked up at Walmart. I know, I know, LQS and all that. They wouldn't have had the material and it would have been without exaggeration twice the price. So I bought it at Walmart.
Anway. I have no idea why I didn't decide on a design before buying fabric, well I do, Little Bit has been sick this week, today is her first day back, and I had my sister watching her while I was at an appointment. The appointment was near the Walmart so I slipped in there on my way home.
I stippled the back, and did some quilt as you go on the front, I had the batting and front sandwiched when I did the applique, and I just added some snowflakes to finish it up. I should have sewn around the foot of the stocking to anchor it for when I sewed the front and back together but oops. It means the foot is a bit more squshed then I'd like but not bad enough to try and unsew. I'm going to hit one of the craft stores to see about one of those fabric pens that puff up on the fabric to write her name on the crown.
Just in general I had trouble getting this to line up etc, I sewed the ruffle down into the stocking and had to pick that out. Little things that make you so glad when it's done.
I also slipped into the very long line at the post office to pick up my packages when on the way home. It was from Fat Quarter Shop! YAY! And I got this
I've already cut into the Nature's Notebook for my niece's doll quilt. I'm again making tumblers, but this time I cut the charm pack into 2.5" squares before shaping them. WOW what a lot of fuzz and fibers. I was sneezing and coughing the whole time. Hopefully they're acurate. I wish I could find an acrylic or whatnot in tumblers, but with either a 2.5 or 5" base. It would be so useful. Oh well. The doll quilt should have 13 rows of 13. Not particularly lucky but I don't think she'll notice, as she's 3.
I told DH he had to wrap the sampler box for me from Santa.
And YOOOO I figured out how to get the pictures to download onto this POS laptop I've been using. I just had to download the driver. No biggie and I feel like a tool for not thinking of it sooner. But oh well. Now I don't have to wait for DH to download the pictures and put them on a flashdrive for me.
