A busy week

Sometimes I even amaze myself with the amount of stuff I can get done in a week!  This was one of those weeks-very productive.

Yesterday I managed to cut and piece these three wall hangings. The snowmen were all on one pre-printed panel.  I added everything else.  I had done some similar ones a couple years ago and these were left so they got pretty much the same treatment as far as pinwheels and borders. And the pinwheels, I am happy to say, are leftover flip and sew corners from past projects.  Love it when I can use what I have and still make something nice.



Wednesday a wonderful friend volunteered to come help me get a start on snowmen for the craft shows.  I cut while she sewed, we ended up with parts for 58 snowmen in 5 different styles.  I will finish them up little by little in time for a late October delivery to a craft show. 


But wait that's not all.  I also finished sewing buttons on more fleece sweaters and labeled them along with regular sweaters. A couple of them may look like repeats. however, they are just different sizes in the same colors/prints.  When I buy yardage of the fleece I get several from the same print.
                                      

It would appear I am on a navy kick wouldn't it.  But that is the color that sells the best.  I think it is because the designs show up so nicely on them. Once again these range from a 9 month to a 4 year. My boy supply was pretty low so this helped beef that up a bit.  I have now added 14 knitted items to my craft show box-ahhh that feels good!  I only have two more fleece to sew up and then I have to figure out how to fix some dropped stitches on another navy sweater, it's the edge stitches which make it a harder task.


Last night I packaged up another table runner for an Etsy sale, and today I will work on 2 more panels.

What about your week, did you have a productive one?  Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.

  6. Hi Vicki! Wowee - I just LOVE those snowmen from panels. The pinwheels add just the right amount of fun and spark to the cute snowmen. I am sure those will be big sellers. I just love your knitted treasures too, and I cannot wait to see how all those pieces become more snowmen when they grow up. ~smile~ Roseanne

  7. Wow! What a productive week. Me, not so productive. But my daughter was totally grateful I came up to watch her girls so she could go to work. I had some fun with the grands. Did a little retail therapy on the way home (and hit the jackpot as things were 50% off with another 30% off.) Can't wait to get back to my studio and sew.

  9. I really like the diagonal stripe borders on the little winter panels. Very cute edge treatment! It's nice to have a productive week. At least I think I remember time when I was productive! Because I sure wasn't this week. One of those lingering, energy-sapping colds is slowly working its way through our little household, so I've only been able to sew in short, sneezy bursts.

  17. Love the use of your leftover hst's to make those pinwheels! Doesn't that feel great? Non-quilters think holding on to those things makes us hoarders, until they see the cute results when we put them into play. Way to go!
