I have been really busy these last few weeks but am unable to share any of the finishes since they are Christmas gifts and exchange gifts. I will share photos later in the year after the items have been received. It is no fun to have to keep these things a secret as I love sharing the photos. I did want to show a few things I am working on.
Here is the most adorable stanley knife I have ever seen. Not the boring old ones in your DHs toolbox. Up to now I have used a cheap orange plastic hobby knife to cut my board for things like pinkeeps. When I was out on Tuesday, I found this one. Sorry the photo is blurred. Can you believe I took around 10 photos of which all were blurred! This is just a good bit of fun for my quilt studio.
I do have to confess that I spent far too much time behind the computer this week. I talked online with my family and Jos who is in England at the moment. That meant more time here than normal and I decided to leave this stitching project beside the computer. When I am talking with them, I work on it. It is not a fast moving project though and I need to devote more time to it. This will become a little pillow for the bed. It will go really well with the quilt I made.
Here are a few new fobs I made with the charms and beads I bought this week. My mother and both nieces want one so I am working on them. Since they are a 'just because' gift and not really a surprise, I am showing them. One of these is for Mandie and the other for Kristy. I have to put my mother's together differently and have not started it yet. I also made a fob to give away for my other birthday's blog in November. It is great to have it done ahead of time. This way, I can drop it in the mail as soon as the winning name is drawn.
