a little Christmas sewing

Bee-autiful Quilting Bee - October
Good morning! I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. Ours really was, they just go so fast, don't they? I made these two blocks last week for the Bee-autiful Quilting that I am participating in. Tiffany requested trees, log cabins, and/or stars in this beautiful Figgy Pudding fabric by Moda. I ended up with this tree in a log cabin and a scrappy tree.

It has definitely got me in the mood for some Christmas sewing! After I finish up my pillows this week, I think I am going to be ready to start working on some more Christmas gifts. I'm thinking bags and gathered clutches are on the list for the girls and women in our family.

Speaking of pillows, yesterday I started my first pillow on the list to be completed for pillow week. Hopefully by tomorrow I will have a finished pillow to show you.



Have a great Monday.
xoxo, Angela
