Christmas Came Early & Other Randomness

Hey there!

Wow ... so I didn't realize its been nearly 2 whole weeks since I did any blogging.  What the heck!?  Sorry about that, y'all.

But, despite all that I've been pretty busy working on a few different projects.  Christmas will be here incredibly soon and I am a little freaked out about my to-sew list.  Anyone else out there?

I am working on a fun new tutorial for you ... but with the crappy weather we've had the last couple of days I haven't been able to get a great photo of the finished project.  For now, I will show you a sneak peek with a Girl Scout's promise to have the tutorial available here in the next day or two ....

.... this turned out really awesome.  Just as I hoped!  If you are a monthly subscriber to our Moda FQ Club, you got a free kit for this project with your December bundle. :-)

The best part about this project was that I've gotten to try out some different stitchy things with my new BFF, the Bernina 710.

Yes, Christmas came early!  So far, I love her.  And I don't know how I've lived without a knee lift, an automatic cutter, the crazy awesome dual feed, and all that space.  (Note - I have been sewing on a great little Bernina (an Activa 210) for quite a few years and loved it!)  Please excuse all the crap in the background.  My sewing room is still a work in progress - or at least that is what I keep telling myself! ;-)

I also joined my sweet friend Christen's ornament swap and was pretty thrilled with my prototype over the weekend ....

I took this mess and started making a slew of these cute little hoops assembly-line style.

Still need to do a few things to finish them up and then I will be mailing them off to my fellow swappers.  Hope they like them.

In shop-related news, we're having a precut sale!  Grab some up and whip up a last minute project quick!

No coupon code is necessary - discount will be taken once items are added to your shopping cart.

We also rearranged our Sale Fabric page so its easier to see what's been marked down.  Check it out.

I think that is it for now!  Hope you have a wonderful, sewing-filled week!

Happy Sewing! :-)

    Congrats on the new machine! After getting a machine with a knee lift I can't imagine not having one!
