Bag It at Elm Street Quilts started on Tuesday, with the first tutorial being a small (4x6) zipper pouch, very cute and small... have I mentioned I'm not keen on sewing small projects... I may have done a time or six. Day two is the same pouch only with boxed corners... But, the smaller projects are a good time to use some of the decorative stitches on my Brother so I'll chug along happily :) I'll make today's one in purple and tuck it into my grand daughter's Christmas present.
The Drunkard's Wife QAL at Sew Scatterbrained also started on Monday. I got block 1 "Happy Hour" done yesterday before the 7 stitches in my upper arm started screaming STOP! I'm doing this one all in wintery prints. left overs from Snowed Inn and some Fat Quarters I purchased at Connecting Threads. The lettering in the center still needs to be stitched, or maybe done in fabric paint, I haven't decided yet.
And lastly, working through the discomfort until I just couldn't, I got the last 4 blocks of Moccasin cut out and ready to sew. I managed to get pairs of the checkerboard units sewn and ironed. It's the ironing that gives me the most grief. The stitches are in my left (dominant for me) arm and that's the side I have my ironing mat set up on. I'll be happy to have Moccasin done, it's been more frustrating than I needed and more than once I've tucked it away with the thought of not finishing... only to pull it back out and get caught up. Except for 4 blocks... two that didn't play well and two that I didn't even attempt. Maybe this will be the month I'll tackle them... or not ;)
My Design/Display wall is looking pretty bare so far this month, but the list is long and growing so it will fill quickly enough.
