December Fresh Sewing Day and Goals

This month I finished one biiiiiig project - my mom's Curlicue Crush quilt ("Mint Chocolate Chip"). This was a huge victory for my piecing skills - curves for the first time! I think SWC primarily motivated me to finally get this one done, a year and a half after it was started. Oh, and she loved it :) It easily took up the majority of my free time this month.


1. "Mint Chocolate Chip" quilt, 2. T-shirt quilt - cousin, 3. Wrenly Voile Scarf - for sister, 4. Untitled

I also finished my reversible Halloween/Thanksgiving tablerunner - yay! We used it at my mom's for Thanksgiving, after it rested on my table all month. My table is currently looking pretty sad though... clearly, another reversible tablerunner is in order. I made my first voile scarf for my sister's birthday. She wears it around all the time and it makes me so happy! 



Speaking of which, I may have just ordered/received more voile from Hawthorne Threads... I see Christmas gifts starting this week. Also, that bottom purple AMH voile is for my very own Washi shirt (or dress - we'll see - I bought enough) - but that's for the new year ;). I kind of wish I could horde this voile, but I really should put it to good use... right?


This drool-worthy yardage might have snuck into my cart, too. My birthday IS coming... :)

I also finished another commission t-shirt quilt - for my cousin. It came out great - I quilted in swirls and horizontal lines.


I can't really show what else I'm working on right now - unfortunately. It's the holiday month so many things will be under wraps.

This month's goal: finish ALL Christmas gifts with time to spare! Gulp. That's actually going to be pretty difficult, methinks, with all the goings-on of December and with two t-shirt quilts due soon...
