a stitch here and a stitch there

Well , what have I been up to??
I did get those socks finished and have been wearing them..... nice and cozy.

I have gotten another  couple of quilts top done. A giving quilt as well as a project that has been sitting around for a while.

This one is a quick and simple, using a stripped fabric. You just cut it into squares and set them in alternating directions and you have your quilt.
I was going to cut it in 10 1/2 inch squares but I should have double checked before my first cut ....... I ended up with 9 1/2 inch squares instead. I wanted to make it a little bigger sew I added an uneven border with the wider borders on top and bottom. It should make a nice size to curl up with on the couch.

I have also been plugging away at some of those UFO's that I have in my sewing room. I have been working on some square in a square blocks for a sampler that I am working on. I am on the third block this weekend with only three more to go and then the setting.

Spider Web Quilt

 I will be teaching a few classes this winter, with one starting in a couple of weeks. Sew I will have a little more class prep to do.I am looking forward to teaching this class as it is a fun way to use up those scraps that just seam to multiply.

 backing is the right size
 I even managed to get a few more batches of Doggie Treats made for my furry friends.

I do have a few things preoccupying my mind and time so not to worry I will trying to keep up my blog and checking in on those that I follow to. It is always great to see what you are up to as well.
Enjoy your week and have some fun getting a stitch in here and there.
