Besides the usual day to day things, and after finishing up the 'pay it forward' gifties I pulled out my collection of sampler charts and decided on this one!
Yes, you are seeing that correctly. A Christmas chart.
Yule Sampler by The Primitive Needle.
While it will most likely hang on my sampler wall throughout the year, I wanted to make sure I would have it completely done, framing included by this Christmas.
I've also been working on the quilt you see beneathe the sampler. Started by my mother-in-law several years ago, she passed it along to me. Since then, it's been folded and stored in my closet for quilt awhile, not sure I would ever get it finished. Since putting a bed in this "spare" room, needing a cover for it, I decided to finally bring out this quilt top for finishing. It just needs to be a little bit bigger, so I'm adding a couple of border strips.
You know what a magazine nut I am, and I recently found this one on the stand. It's to bring me a little inspiration to design and make a small quilt for my grandbaby who is expected to arrive in July.
Then I found this one.....
Just for fun, I picked up this one.....
Maybe some fun gooey cupcakes for the summer family picnics or bake sales instead of the usual cakes or cookies?
Both are awesome magazines and will probably never see that give-away or recycle pile!
Well, time to get busy.....
Enjoy your day!
