December 17 2009 Quilting Newsletter


Hello everyone, itís Quilters Quarters time again. I hope you are all managing with the madness of this time of year. My darling and I went present shopping this morning and it was bedlam, absolute bedlam. Getting a park was like winning the lottery, and getting out with our MasterCard still in tact was an achievement to be proud of. And we are still speaking to each other Ė a miracle!!

(Note to self: next year start doing your Christmas shopping before you hear Christmas carols). Hmmm, itís a good ideaÖ.

Anyway, even though itís a mad time, Iím actually getting some sewing done. Iíve made five weighted blankets over the past few days, and itís getting so easy, I do not need the instructions anymore. Iím using fabric that has been donated and itís fabulous for these types of coverings. A little heavier than usual patchwork fabric, which means itís able to withstand the rigors of washing in a machine.

Last week I posted another installment of last minute patchwork and quilting ideas for Christmas. Iíve had so many requests, I spent some time surfing the net and gathering these various sites for you to have a look at. Hereís the link to that article:http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art2268.asp

I had a question a few weeks ago about how to repair a warped cutting board, and I only ended up with a few suggestions. Anyone else know what to do? Hereís the link to that question on the forum. Feel free to let us know your suggestions:http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=43

I have a few gifts for you this week and they are more ideas for last minute Christmas gifts. I hope you enjoy them.

Well, dear friends, I will say adieu to you for now, I hope the next week isnít too mad for you all and that you are able to spend a little time creating for yourselves. Take care, and Iíll speak with you next week.
Cheerio for now
