Strike another goal off the list! I have completed the scarf for my MIL, I will make her a quilted bag too to complete her Xmas gift. Knitting seems to be really in vogue right now, so it wasn't hard to get into it at all. Cameron loved the scarf while I was knitting it, and he's asked for me to make him one too. He's chosen the wool already (from my very small stash) and I've cast on and started a few rows.
I've also made up a little Xmas gift for one of Marty's cousins. I found these really cute coffee cups and thought I'd make up some little mug mats to go with them. I really like how the cups look with the mats, so I may find some more cups and put them aside for birthday gifts for my friends during the course of the year.
Yesterday was a superfun day. I always love my teaching day at the quilt store. We have the loveliest bunch of girls come along, it's more like a social group. One of the girls, Maureen, is just learning how to machine quilt, and she's got a few projects backed up waiting to be quilted. She's been making up these little table runners lately, they're made up from those little 5" squares of Moda fabrics, you know the ones, right? Well, I felt like it would be fun to do a little mindless machine quilting, so I offered to quilt one for her. Her favourite design is the peacock feathers, so I happily quilted it for her last night.
This morning I'm taking my dear little Bernie in to be serviced. It's really due to be done, but you know, I can never bear to be away from it. I called Otto, and he asked me 'What are you going to do?' because he knows how prolific I can be ... and I told him that this time I'll just have to go into withdrawal for a little while. If I really need to, I can crack open one of the Featherweight boxes. My last goal for the month could be interesting without my favourite machine, but where there's a will, there's a way!
