I have been able to do some sewing either I am not finding enough time or things just really seem to take longer than I think they should. I have always been know by my quilting friends as a speedy sewer but doesn't seem to be working that way lately. I know that when things become a little too crazy at home or at work sewing always puts me in a better mood. So on the WIP's....
Easy Street, I have finished step 3! I had all of those cut so watched a sappy Hallmark Christmas movie and finished them all. I am still working on those fly geese. I was trying to figure out which method to use but since I had some 2 inch strips cut I am using the Easy Angle. They are turning out pretty well I just need to sew more of them to get caught up on step 2 and step 4.

Here are the pieces in one place.Completed Projects
Since I had holiday sewing to do and I started Easy Street none of the other projects have gotten much attention but that is ok since I did get the 3 pillows done for three co-workers. I am very pleased with how they turned out. Not so thrilled with the pictures since it was very gray all weekend with no sun and it is dark when I leave in the morning and dark when I get home. So a few pictures snapped in the sewing room is all I got! Here are the three all together. I really like them. I gave them to their new owners and each of them loved them. I had the fabrics nailed for each of them. A couple close ups as well:
This one was my favorite. I love that olive green and turquoise together with a touch of red.
I had been saving these fabrics for something special but decided it was time to use it up since I am sure there will be new Christmas fabric to buy next year!
Now I just need buy a few more gifts and wrap them all! All the baking and chocolates are done which is a big relief. A snow storm is headed this way tomorrow so hopefully I can stay in and get those gifts wrapped and sneak in some sewing!
Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by!
