I"ve done a few things

I forgot how much time doing homework and studying for tests is when you got so school!  I"m telling you - doing this homework for my class is sucking my sewing time away from me!  But I am enjoying the class and learning lots.

I have found time to do a few things.  One of the things I finished recently was a little table runner for a little friend of mine out east.  She asked if I could make a dresser scarf for her dresser.  She has the cutest prettiest hot pink dresser in her room.  But she was sad because Grandma stayed in her room one visit and spilled something on the top that left some ugly marks on the pretty pink.  So she wanted to cover it up.  So I made the above table runner for her.  I washed it up today and tomorrow it will be flying its way to its new home!  I used all I had left of scraps from a quilt I made her a few years ago.  It will be wonderful on that hot pink dresser - don't you think!?

I also managed to finish a quick quilt for my youngest daughter who is graduating from college this coming spring. She already got her Christmas Present for this year - a Sea Kayak.  She wanted one this last summer as she was working for a Kayak Outfitter on Lake Superior and has a job there this coming summer leading Kayak Tours.  So we advanced her some cash to purchase her own kayak - it is bigger than her car!

So when I saw this Kayak Fabric I knew I needed to make her a kayak quilt.  Got that finished and it is quilted and bound, ready for a Christmas Surprise!  (ok I had snapped this on my ipad and I can't get it to turn it right side up - but you get the idea!)

Wonderful gift for your daughter and a great time to get into kayaking, wish I had started when I was younger. The quilt to go with it is perfect, I am sure she is going to love it.

Great to see some of your work again. I can't remember the last time I got something quilted for me, hopefully December will have some time. We went kayaking for the fist time this summer in Alaska and I'm hooked. What a great gift!

I love the quilt AND the kayak!

The first project is so girly and pretty. I'm sure it will be treasured.

You are doing good, kiddo. Can't believe you got that much done with work and school interfering your quilt time.
Can't believe she is already how time flies.
Looking forward to January!!!!!
