And the stockings were hung on the shelf with care! The quilt is one of my favorites I've made all year. Can't wait to display it at home now.
The tablerunner, hot pad and oven mitt (pictured below) are the projects for the Moda Bakeshop Club for December. Everything is made from one charm pack and a little bit of yardage. These would make great Christmas gifts. We have kits ready for these, come sign up and make someone "SEW" happy this holiday!
Piece of cake anyone? Hands off, just for decorating purposes only! I used things around the shop to "BAKE" it.
I found rolls of twill tape in 3 different sizes for the layer effect, a skein of embroidery floss for the leaves and a ball of perle cotton for the rosebud. Pretty clever and cute if I do say so myself! What do you think?
I put all the kits in bakery boxes for the extra cutness, you know me and cute! Everything has to be just right.
These are the same stockings I did with my Simply Sewing ladies. They take on a whole new look in this style of fabrics and trims. I have made this into a pattern and I put them together today. They will be for sale at the shop starting Monday. This is a great stocking pattern and very easy too.
A shot of the bolts all lined up, I can't believe how fast this line is selling. Good news though, Moda is running it again and they will be shipping out again in December. Hooray!

And speaking of teaching this bag again, I'm doing so at Dave's Bernina on Friday night November 13th @ 5:30 if you can't make the class at the Corn Wagon. Call Dave's Bernina if you are interested. This is their Ladies Night Out, and you know it's going to be fun 'cause there's food involved! Come see me there!

A new fall quilt made from Gobble, Gobble from Sandy Gervais. Triple Treat Petite is the pattern I used from the Happy Hour book from Atkinson's Designs. Ramona quilted an all over leave design in varigated thread. She probably won't get used this fall because she's on display at the shop until all the kits are gone, but I will look forward to cuddling up with her next year.
