More Of The Same

Table toppers that is. I finished these two tonight. Personally, I'm not crazy about the one with the striped outer border. In retrospect, I should have used that stripe on the inner, smaller border. I think it would have looked better.

Halloween Fabric

I have been cleaning my studio. I recently came across a cache of Halloween fabrics. Why did I buy those again? I certainly have no intentions of making a Halloween quilt. I am sure I had some lovely project in mind though. Since a lot of the fabric was pre-cut yardage, I only had so many options. I decided on table toppers. They don't take a lot of fabric, they are quick to make and I can just about guarantee that I can actually finish them by Halloween! I made two of these spider table toppers tonight. I quilted the middle, but the quilting is lost in the busy fabric. Of course, I HAD to make Matthew a couple of man bibs from the stash!

Home Run

Yes, I am still making man bibs. Matthew has an aide that really likes to dress him according to what sport is taking place on any particular day. I have been lax. Up until now he had NO baseball bibs. That has been rectified.

While checking the ufo closet, I came across some tissue holders that were cut but not sewn. Those are now done and put away for a quick gift when needed.

Slurp and Burp

It is time to play catch-up. I did finish two more scrapbook pages last week. Just in time for the baby shower.

Yesterday I decided to make a couple more bibs for my son. The textile manufacturers have such cute patterns on their fabrics that they are hard to resist.

And finally, I finished up 3 ufo burp cloths. Apparently I was going to make them for someone, but they have been in the ufo pile for so long that I don't remember who! They are the perfect color (blue) for my Grandson, who is expected to make his appearance in October.
