My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

Gift Sewing Madness

Happy Wednesday!

We had a great time traveling up north for Thanksgiving. It was great visiting family and eating delicious food!  The cold weather however did not agree with me – I have been sick the past week.  Today is the first day I haven’t had all day coughing spells and getting out of bed wasn’t a chore.

I was happy and grateful to spend all day at my sewing machine!  Like many of you I have many holiday gifts/projects to finish and not enough time! 🙂

Place mats and table runners are my go to gifts for family — I try to have them finished early  so they can use them during the holiday season.

My girl friend requested place mats with multi colored (warm colors) poseys.  I found the fabric in the clearance section at JoAnn’s.  I love how they turned out!

We took our young grandsons to see  The Grinch movie over Thanksgiving. They loved it. When I saw this fabric I had to make a set of place mats for them to remember us!

I actually started this last set of QAYG place mats before Thanksgiving. My daughter loves bling!  I found a jelly roll that had several pieces of fabric with metallic threads.

    Fabulous placemats! I liked them all and know your grands will be pleased with theirs. That floral you found on clearance was a great buy, whatever it cost. The backing is so good with it, too.

  5. I’m glad you’re feeling better Karla.
    Wow, your placements are awesome! I love them all. I never tire of seeing How The Grinch stole Christmas movie every year. The posey set has given me a good idea for some I want to make.
    And you did it all in one day, amazing!!!

  7. Hi Karla! Ooh-la-la! Such pretty fabrics. That posey print is just perfect – I’m 100% sure your friend will love them. And the Grinch!! So fun – I wanted to go see that new movie and Sue didn’t want to. Huh??!! That’s odd – she loves the Grinch. I’ll have to keep nagging her. HAHA! Happy Happy Thursday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne
