Sewing Party Day!!

Here is my final update for the day. I had a bit of an intermission when I left to go to the movies with DH and son otherwise I could have made several of these. I'm pleased with a finish of nearly three. (middle ones seams aren't sewn) These will be fantastic gifts.

This was my first attempt at making "Snap Happy" and I do have a finish!! Woo Hoo!! It's a gift!

As I sit here looking around the room I have many projects that I can be working on to gift for Christmas. I do plan on working on something specific for a certain blogger that I just love to bits but can't tell what it is or even show it or the surprise is ruined. So I will also hope to work on a sweet little pattern that was given to me by Shelley at Red Quilts.

I do want to give a big thank you to Sew Cindy and Accuquilt! A few days ago she had a giveaway for a GO! and three dies. I was absolutely blown away when I heard my number was pulled and I had won dies.

Ok everybody...let's sew away Saturday!!

Mary Lou Casada said...

Congrats on the die win! I love your snap happy bags! A friend made small ones for our guild members who attended a retreat. We had to bring quarters in our Snappy bag to ante up when we "unsewed!" :-D I used up all my quarters, but I got to keep the bag!
