PS Wreath SAL





Here are my first 2 blocks done for the 12 days of Christmas SAL. So I haven't fallen behind...yet! Click on the link on my sidebar and see what some of the other ladies are doing. Some are doing the new Cranberry Christmas pattern and others have decided to do entirely different PS patterns. What a great variety!

Hubby worked hard this weekend on my sewing room, it is all freshly painted, and then he installed my cutting table and some new cabinets he had made for me to store all of my quilting/stitching stash. I spent a good part of Sunday moving everything up 2 flights of stairs and sorting through, trying to organize things. Pictures will come, once things start to look a little more organized.

Then we were off to take Kristy and Nick to Zoo Camp at Jungle Cat World for a week at teen camp which means, yes, gasp, an entire week with the house to ourselves! We celebrated last night with dinner out at hubby's favourite restaurant, he certainly deserved it after his hard work on the weekend. And then he had to make another trip out to the zoo as Nick had forgotten an extra pair of shoes for caving which they are doing today. Caving, which also means water caving, not an experience for claustrophobic me but the kids are very excited about it. Kristy has done it before and loves it. I can't imagine Nick will be able to fit his 6'2" body in a lot of these enclosed tiny spaces but....I won't think about that.

I am also stitching on my square for the Fair and Square Exchange. My partner for Round #2 is Carol. I had so many choices when it came time to find a design for her, as she loves so many styles, and although my first thought was of course to stitch a house for her, as we are in a Neighbourhood RR together. I finally decided on something and got started on the weekend. Of course I won't be showing that here although may be a peek later on.

Looking forward to seeing your newly-painted sewing room! Caving - best left alone I reckon :)

The first 2 blocks for the PS SAL look great! I wish I had known about this SAL when it started, it would have been the motivation I needed to actually stitch up some of the PS charts I have.

I Love the Squares. They look great.

Hi Wendy,

Great progress on your SAL squares for the grapevine wreath. I haven't even finished the first one. Barnyard Christmas is a bit more involved than I thought. I should have chosen smaller squares.

Your new room sounds great. Glad that you and your husband are enjoying some "together" time. Enjoy the rest of your week. It's always great to read your posts.

Your blocks are so cute, congrats on your two finishes. Enjoy having the house to yourselves for a bit, and in getting your stash all organized in your new craft room, it sounds like a very fun project.

Hi Wendy, your two PS ornies are super - what a neat idea for a SAL. I'm also looking forward to seeing your sewing room, sounds great. Enjoy the time with your DH and hope the kids have heaps of fun (caving isn't my cup of tea either, lol)

Oh, I am sooo jealous. Your own crafting room. I settle for a corner in the living room and stash everything else where I can. Your ornaments are nice. Looking forward to meeting you this weekend.
