Cold Weather = Productivity!!

So happy for the cool weather-why because I hate to drive in it (Im a scaredy cat), actually Im more scared of all the other crazy drivers in the snow..Im so slow I drive people crazy!
So that means hometime..which means I may actually get to enter the sewing cave at the end of the hall! I did. This is a patchwork runner I made out of Moda's new line "Mistletoe Manor". Everytime I make something lately I forget to sew on my tags, and I did it again on this ppatchwork holiday tote! So i added a little strip of fusible web & ironed it onto the inside pocket which is where i wanted to sew it on but forgot. It worked great!

I used a multitonal sulky browns thread that changes colors as you sew, then crazy machine stitched all over it. Hoping I can keep the stitching groove going for awhile, since I lost it for so long there! I went to the "first" holiday craft fair of the season today at the University. It was so packed & crazy peoples purses and bags kept hitting the baby in the head in the stroller! Poor guy, it was a zoo! You couldn't even get close enough to the tables to see anything! My son kept saying"lets get out of here!" I really wanted to be part of this show, but with this little guy getting into everything...just didn't happen! Oh well , there is always next year!
On my Mind:

~Christmas gifts-must make list of handmade goods to get started on for family.

~Drooling over Holiday recipes to make & freeze (ecspecially biscotti)

~New goodies to make for shop

~Get Pincushions ready to ship!!!!! So excited to show you the design that I made that was chosen to be in the new book coming out this spring, Creative Pincushions!

~Kittens are getting huge & ripping curtains

~Waiting on test results from the allergest so I can feed this baby something to eat that wont make him sick.

~Snow, hot chocolate, and good conversation(with an adult please!)LOL.....

Your patchwork looks great - good idea about the labels too - I forget all the time and it drives me crazy.

I love the fabrics and colours you used for those projects.

I'm a big scaredy cat about driving in this weather too, especially on the highway where people are whipping by like crazy. Do they have a death wish or something?

I was tempted to check out the craft sale at the University but I had a suspicion it would be really crazy. I'm glad I didn't bother!

I am totally with you on the driving in the snow...hate it! My hub teases me about it all the time, but it is just so dangerous with all the other fools out on the roads! lol Love your new projects and am really looking forward to the mystery pincushion! Hot chocolates all around! Yeah!

It was so mild yesterday and then today in the late afternoon it feels like it dropped 20 degrees. It was very odd. I love the new moda line and what you made with it. Can I ask where you found your labels? I need to get some very soon. I loved seeing the snowy photo.

I'm so glad I'm not alone when it comes to snow & icy driving conditions...I hate it. And I don't feel so bad about forgetting to sew my own labels on...more times than I care to mention :)
I have been wanting to make a patchwork runner for the holidays for months, but can't decide on fabric. Yours is beautiful, as is the tote!

What a great bag!! So good that you are sewing again! I bet that fair put you in the mood for holiday shopping {not!]. I hope the test results come back with good news and a long list of foods for your little one.

Your bag is so pretty! I just got some of this fabric to make Christmas cards with. I especially like the dots - so fun and cute!
