Check.....

Christmas Elf Stitchery finished................................CHECK !


Christmas Mice Stitchery piecing done.................CHECK !!

Log Cabin Angel finished..................................................CHECK !!!

I don't want to jinx myself but I have been tearing up the September list of sewing goals! As with half the things I do, I changed the borders and stuff...much simpler! But I like them all the same.

*****DETAILS for those who might ask later
:********
Christmas Elf's official name is Welcome Christmas by JoAnn Mullaly (jampatterns@cox.net) ... I got it at Country Loft. Christmas Mice is from Cinderberry Stitches. Left side bar gives you places in the USA where you can purchase patterns.

With that I also made the final two Dresden plates for my four patch quilt similar to this. And...I'm 3/4 done on my version of a Cheri pattern of fall pumpkins. I say version only because I don't have the pattern. I guessed at the sizes and they work for me. If you can't tell, I do this a lot...seriously, a LOT! BUT, I also buy lots. I just got 7 Cheri Payne patterns, some old and some new!

Now I have tons of hand projects to do and that may take longer due to the time constraints with my trigger finger problems and the tendon. It's getting much better though and I seriously think it's because I'm taking 1100 milligrams of fish oil everyday that has other junk in there too. Nature's anti-inflammatory. But I'm still working and making tracks!

YEP.......I probably just jinxed myself good.

I spent last night watching Heroes and working on my Welcome Christmas and that hair is driving me nuts!!! But I love it so much and seeing yours all finished will help me to carry on :)

I just think that Christmas Mice hanging is the most adorable thing! Do you really think the fish oil is helping? I may have to try that: I have a trigger thumb.

Isn't it amazing how we can get into a quilt slump and then other times have check, check, check?! Good job!

Well look at you go . . . so many finishes. Inspires me to get off my duff and get busy *S*

Fish oil, huh? I think I shall look into that.

Wendy said...

You are really getting things done, I need to work on a few things.

I take fish oil but maybe not enough.

Way to go, Judy! I love the Christmas Elf - it's adorable. I finished stitching the mice last year but I need to do the "finishing" soon.

I know I don't need to say this but please don't over do - pace yourself.

Cute, cute stitchery projects. You did a good job on them.

I think you & me both have given Cheri lots of pattern business!
