This is what I've been up to this week.....
Okay, so it's not sewing, but sure tasts good!
But in my defense, the cookie plate is sitting on one of the Christmas place mats I made last year. This pattern is called "Tree Time Placemats" from the Fast & Furious quilting as you go book by Gudrun Erla.
For some reason, the cookies did not hold the shape very well. Those are bells, in case you can't tell. lol
The cookies are really easy to make. Just use your favorite cut out Sugar cookie recipe and add 3/4 cup of crushed peppermint candy. And when they come out of the oven, sprinkle a few more pieces of the crushed candy on top. Of course you could ice them and then add the peppermint sprinkles.
The pink is all put away now and on to Step 5.
700 is a lot of little triangles to cut, but they go very quickly stacking the strips in groups of 4.
See, here they are all cut, stacked and ready to sew.
I just love the way the colors play together!
This is going to be one bright quilt.
I love all shades of purples, lavenders, pinks, and greens...especially the chartreuse greens. But if I had to pick a favorite color it would ....on most days....be aqua blue. Funny thing is, I don't own a thing that color. Nothing in my sewing stash, nothing in my closet. Very weird. I need to remedy that next trip to the fabric store!
So, here I go sewing away today with two of my best sewing buddies keeping me company!
Eeyore fits right in...his colors match the blocks so well, I'll have to be careful and not try to sew him up. LOL He's about half full of Green Tea...that would make a big mess! Cactus Jack just likes to watch. I can talk to him and he doesn't talk back.
Well, allrighty then....enough silliness...gonna sit my rear down in the chair and SEW! I want these little buggers done by tomorrow morning. I have lots of other things to work on this week, too!
Whew! All done...they sure are cute little things all winged up!
or maybe a new unidentified species of bats
...or not...too much influence
from the vampire movies for that one....
these little Officially identified Winged HSQT UFO's are anxiously awaiting their destiny!
