More Christmas

I have been so busy lately that I haven't done a lot of new sewing but I did get these placemats finished.  I have had them around for a year or so now.  They were a kit but some of the pieces were missing so I added the green strip and the last 2" strip and put the same colour of binding on.  They were suppose to me made so that they were put together inside out and turned and then no binding was put on them but I don't like placemats like that so I had to change them.  I think they worked out quite nice.

I have been try to get my things finished for the next guild meeting. We are doing our presentation on the Ricky Tims seminar that we attended last May. My convergence is finished and I am hand sewing the binding on.  I will post it when it is finished.  I hope to remember to take my camera to guild this week too so that I can put some pictures on the blog.

I spent last Friday over at the "Circle of Friends Quilt Shop" cutting out kits for the next quilt bee.  I cut 2 kits in the three hours that I was there.  It was a lot of fun volunteering and meeting new guild members.
