That's so cute, Sharon! You're a doll to make another one for a friend. When I saw it I remembered I had a couple of witch towels in my holiday closet that I needed to get out for display. Not nearly the work your sign is. I'm still having problems with my embroidery machine and I'd get 90% embroidered on your sign and it would poop out. Guess I need to be on the look out for a new machine. I like having a stand alone embroidery machine so I can sew while the machine embroiders. So much wasted time just watching that needle go up and down!

Thanks, Gloria. I made eight of them for my craft group members. I made mine first and realized immediately after that I should have attached the stuffed legs using Velcro. That's what I used on the waist band. I find pictures Of items I want to copy but don't have directions. So I learn the hard way. I also made some red towels with elf legs for Christmas. I did use Velcro on those legs so I could detach them to wash easier. Duh!

I am hoping to sew some log cabin blocks together today.  Just means I have to lay them all out again once I fully wake up.

Really cute towels, Evelyn.  They really "dress" up your stove.  Super cute idea!

I got a quilt top done today! Now hoping I can get a back pieced and get it basted tomorrow. It's for a co-worker of my husband that is having a rough time. I'm on my iPad, so the photo is in my gallery under " In progress."
I spent several hours over a couple of days playing with the layout before I finally settled on this one today.
It needed to be a quick sew, so I just did HSTs out of a layer cake and some white 10" squares.
I'm actually quite pleased with it so far! The quilting is hard for me, so I'm not usually super thrilled with that part.

Have a doctors appt first thing this morning but then I will be back to work on my log cabin blocks.  Also thinking of some small projects to work on.  I really need to make a list so I don't forget all these ideas.

WOW LaDawn!!  I love it!!  The color and fabrics really speak to me.  

I started some quilting on the wallhanging from Milan and I had forgotten a few things but I am picking it right back up..   

Little things like Bobbins need to be loaded.. hahhaha   and quilting gloves make ALL the difference in the world in controlling the quilt as it moves under the needle.  ;)

Ummm.....I don't know anything about either one of these...that's my story and I'm sticking to it! 

Today I made a really cute embroidered pumpkin/candy corn table runner.  Still have to back it and bind, but it turned out sew cute.  Three designs done in the hoop, then I put them together to make a 3 block table runner.  Will post a pic when I back it....probably tomorrow.   Had to go to PO today to mail  a couple of packages and our home was DIRTY!!!  Don't know how that happens...maybe because I don't do anything because I am in the sewing room???  I also had to go get wrapping paper for daughter and hubby's 30th anniversary gift then wrapped, stripped the beds and washed/remade same, did laundry.  GEEEZ, I'm exhausted
