Holiday Placemats

I made my daughter a set of 8 reversible placemats.  My house used to be holiday central, but it seems to have shifted to her house.  I hope that they are used and enjoyed.

Oops!  I got a new iphone, and even though it has a case, I decided to protect the screen even further than the screen protector, I needed a soft case.  Yesterday, I made the one on the left, but decided that it needed to be a little less snug, and a pocket on the front would be nice.  Today, with Thanksgiving on my mind, I made another case.  Too big, and I forgot the pocket.  It does fit my 7 inch tablet in it's case though.  I guess I'll be making a third, hopefully the third time will be the charm, as has previously been alleged.  Right not, I'm not in the mood.

Not Much Sewing Going On

Just small projects going on here this past week.  Litter bags from Life with Lou blog, and a do it myself iphone 6 case. The iPhone case needs to be a bit bigger though.

Sampler Quilt

Last year, I started several projects at the beginning of the year.  One was a combination of the Craftsy BOM from 2012, and Amy Gibson's Sugar Block Club.  It was my intention to make a queen sized sampler quilt.  I finally caught up with some new projects, and so decided to get back to my Sampler quilt.  I had 21 blocks, and decided I needed 30, so these are the other 9.  Some are from the original project, and a few are blocks that I liked and decided to do rather than paper piece, or other things that I haven't enjoyed that much.  I plan to do sashing and cornerstones and borders, so I'm not sure how fare I'll get before Bonnie's 2014 mystery.  My house is needing attention, and I MUST make that a priority.
