I enjoyed yesterday and today just goofing around on little last minute Christmas crafts really only using the Orca Bay step 5 triangles as leaders/enders. I have 140 done and need to get back to it. Here's the fun Christmas pillowcase that I made for John Abraham, (Matthew's father) who resides in a local nursing home. I showed it to Matthew, who loved it and was so glad that I'd made it for his Dad.
Then I drove for an hour and a quarter to my niece's house to sneak presents under her tree because I thought she was at work as a police dispatcher. Alas, she was asleep and I woke her! Those swing shifts are murder on her, but I left the presents and hurried away without even a cup of tea to allow her to go back to sleep.
Then I was very very naughty! She lives right near Keepsake Quilting's mothership shop. I could NOT resist!There was a Moda black floral that called to me, "Victoria, Victoria. You know you want me!"
Did you notice the fabric ribbon that Keepsake always ties their purchase bags closed with? It is a lovely Christmas fabric of bright red cardinals sitting in misletoe berries. It so inspired me! As soon as I got home, I set to making sweet little sachets using that and some of my leftover strings from Orca Bay.
Here is my Orca Bay progress:
