Weekly Progress - Thankful

I hope everyone had a good holiday weekend! 

We drove 16 hours to see some friends for Thanksgiving - totally worth it for the fried turkey and raiding her fabric scraps.

Since I was out of town, I didn't get as much done this week, but I did manage to check off a couple things.

Cut out another doll dress just so I could use the scraps in...

{Design Wall} - a Christmas tree wall hanging for my mother.

 {Finished} - the blocks of the Chunky Log Cabin. Next up, the border. And I'm not going to stop and let this thing sit again, especially since I have everything I need to finish it.

{UFO Busting} - Sunday, I actually sat down and worked on a real UFO! Basted the Blue Bowtie and quilted it up. I'm trying to decide if I want to go for a third line of echoing.

{Fifteen Minute Challenge} - not only did I do NO organizing this week - I made it worse by moving a sewing machine and piling everything on the floor there to make room for all this...

So I'm going to have to really dedicate myself to the Fifteen Minute Challenge this week to get everything put away properly so I can share my work space with Santa.

Fifteen Minute Challenge @ Life In Pieces


  1. ooh...can't wait to see that tree wall hanging come together.

  2. Looking forward to seeing that Christmas tree wall hanging finished for your mom. Nice!

  3. I love the way you used the birangles for the tree! I tried to sort my sewing room as well. Too bad it means I haven't been about to sew for 5 days! Good luck with the sorting.

  4. Lots of progress at your place. The Chunky Log Cabin is looking good and love the Tree wall hanging you have going. I cleaned up my sewing room before Thanksgiving to make room for all the wrapping stuff that takes up residence between now and Christmas. Great Week, even without the 15 minutes.
