So fun to hear everyone’s memorable stocking stuffers on the last post!  Thanks for sharing.

This year in our house if you leave Santa the traditional gifts of a Guinness, cookie and a nicely printed note you might get:

  • Life savers Book
  • Project to keep little hands busy
  • Jar of Marshmallow Fluff and Nutella
  • Pecans

Sunday I spent an awesome afternoon perusing and buying handcrafted gifts at the Urban Craft Uprising.  There are a few vendors I like to support yearly.  I also ran into a few Seattle Modern Quilt Guild people.

I then bee-lined it to Drygoods Sunday. For fabric of course, but the plan is to gift it as wonderfully crafted gifts.


A needle book is in the works with some Storybook.  BECAUSE, be still my Heart, Niece Ella is getting a sewing machine for Christmas!

I doubt she needs inspiration, but she certainly needs a place to store her tools.  Sew She Sews has a great tutorial if you need some guidance.


I’ve been wanting to do the Everyday Bag from Heather Ross’s Weekend Sewing with this flowered corduroy for some time now.

Maybe the Tula Pink for the interior, or faux bois in dark green.  Any tips from anyone who has made this?  It seems pretty straight forward, but I’m thinking something weighty like Essex linen might drape better or adding a muslin lining.


Some infinity scarves are in the works, this flannel paired with some voile.  Voile still to be researched and colormatched.


I fell in love with this Alexander Henry in my Modern Charm Quilt class.  My friend Anne combined it with some fabulous fabrics.  This one is just because I needed it for my stash.

I’ve got a few gifts done,



and a trivet nearly there, just some binding to sew down while I start my Arrested Development marathon tonight.  It’s been awhile.


Today gifting must be put aside to finish a sample for my Double Trouble Quilt Block Workshop.  As usual, my small baby quilt evolved and I am going to spend some time creating some more blocks.  It needs some width.

Hoping to have a photo tomorrow of a finished quilt top.
