the finished products

Delivered the two shop samples today, such fun. Here is the first, a Christmas wall hanging using "Santa's Got the Goods" from Clothworks:

Here is the second in progress, from Mama's Feedsacks fabrics:

and the final result, a tea cozy (shown before I put the binding on the bottom):
This is a project from the Clothesline Club that will be sold in the shop. There are going to be various projects and more feedsack prints coming out for the rest of the year. I've completely flipped over the plaid print and am working on a tiny quilt this evening that uses the green and yellow/orange plaid (in the line but not in the cozy). Am trying to think of something cute that would use a lot of the red plaid as well. Ideas welcome.

Oh! I had to take time out from all of this frivolity today to check with my credit card company: how many times do we post with this story? Yes, some Thief got my number and had begun to use it. Can't use that card until the new one arrives with a new number. Where will all of this end? The cc companies have programs that cross-check whenever a charge is made to a company that thieves love to frequent, like Apple and other computer sites, to see if that particular customer has ever purchased from those sites before. How can I be without a credit card? I don't actually have any money.

Brava on the Christmas treat! Was the whole inner portion a panel, or were the vignettes from a panel?

And the cozy is a charmer!

Karen, so sorry about your credit card! Why don't these people just get a job and EARN money like the rest of us??? Hopefully you caught it before too much damage was done. Love that feedsack tea cozy!!! And the Santa hanging is darling. You've been a busy, busy girl.

Karen I am so sorry it happened to you too. I finally got my new credit card yesterday...they said 3-5 days and it was 7. I missed that card, but I'm going to be watching it very closely. It just stinks that people think they are entitled to what we work for.
Love that tea cosy and those prints are darling.

Love projects! Sorry to read about your credit card. I've made it a habit of checking my statement on line to see what's going on. I couldn't live without a credit card either. Hope everything resolves itself soon! Keep well!

I'm really sorry to hear about your credit card - stories like yours absolutely infuriate me. I don't understand what makes someone think they have the right to take what isn't theres. AAARRRGGGHHH

On a happier note :-) the Christmas quilt is great and the tea cozy is so cute. I can 'hear' the smile in your words - I going to assume that you're have a good summer break?!?!?!?

Boy you are really enjoying your summer and your new job! The projects look great.

Greenmare said...

that tea cozy is the CUTEST one I have ever seen, if you want to stop by sometime and bring it along I'd make the tea........
Ideas for your cute red plaid-
in the book "Cups and Saucers" by Maaike Bakker she uses some plaids in dishes and in a tea towel hanging from a shelf and they are adorable! They are on my list for someday!
