Thursday Group

This Thursday we started the day early so that we could have more time but it never seems to end that way.  We had a lot of catching up to do but we still accomplished a lot today.

Pierina is still quilting her table topper.
Aren't the colour beautiful??

Maria's Schnibbles Plan C
The fabric is Sunkissed by Moda.

She is sorting the pieces for the piano key border.
It is hard to pull them out randomly,
I also picked my colours out for the border
so that it was very organized.

Joyce is still sewing squares together for cushions.

Here she is cutting squares to make cushions to match
her Bed Scarf.

This is one 1/4 of the topper.

I need to quilt it before I show it.

Knit One, Purl One.

My Rhematologist had a large poster on his wall with a picture of knitting needles and wool and the title was
"Knit one, Purl One.

Last Thursday Maria brought knitting to our group and the scarf that she made with the wool.  I started thinking that maybe I would try my hand at making this scarf. I have done some knitting in my time.  It couldn't be that hard.

So I went to the wool store today and purchased the wool and started it tonight.

The wool (if you can call it that because it is acrylic) is made by Red Heart.  It is called Red Heart Boutique Sashay.

I have it started.

It is suppose to take 2 hours to make,
but I think it will take me a little longer.

Schnibbles is finished

I finished the top of the Schnibbles quilt.  The piano key border has been added.  I have to wait to quilt it since I have a lot of sewing to do for Christmas.  I like to make a lot of gifts so it will be put aside for awhile.

I used Ready, Set, Snow
from Me and My Sister Designs
for Moda Fabrics.
