This weekend was crazy busy! I don't feel like I got a whole lot done. I started at 5:30 AM on Friday when I made a runaround bag for Janelle, whose last day at work was Fri. She and I have become good friends while working together and I'm going to miss her a ton. I had it whipped together in a half hour and got ready for work. Anyone who knows me, knows this was a miracle since I usually don't get up until the last minute that I need to. I'm not a morning person! Friday night I put a bunch of my Christmas CD's on my Ipod and it took a long time! I'm now set to listen to Christmas music at work all month.
Sat. was strip club, so a busy day! It was lots of fun and always so interesting to see the show and tell that everyone brings. After work I met Jenn and three of her friends and we had supper and went to the movie Four Christmases. It was a really good movie and a great Girls Night Out with new friends. I really enjoyed spending time with other young women.
Sunday I worked and Jen's wall hanging kept picking at me. I've been resisting the 12 Days of Christmas panel, but when I saw it done up I had to get one. It's so super cute. I had big plans to quilt it Sun. night, but Elaine threw a fit! Her tension is completely off, so I took her in to the shop today and hope it's nothing too major. So mom's Barlow quilt and my panel are sitting.
We rearranged the house and put the Christmas Tree in place and then I cleaned my sewing room. I pulled out Marie and started cutting out my Crazy Eights tablerunner. I had all the stratas done, just needed to piece the top. I got the first part sewn and Marie is just a little charm to have around. She sews so beautifully! Tonight I started piecing the top and didn't stop until the top was done.
Here's the finished top on my design wall. It's about 42" across. Once it's quilted I plan to use it on our round dining room table. It's also on my new list of quilts to be quilted. I know that's three... don't be too shocked!
