On My Sewing Table Friday

Another snow day = a little sewing!

I love these little clips that I ordered from Amazon a few weeks ago.  There are a lot in this cute tin, but I only use a few at the time while sewing down the back of a binding on a quilt.  They make the process so much easier.

I don't know if you noticed, but the old red truck with a Christmas tree in the back has been everywhere and in every store during Christmas.  I saw a few things during Christmas of 2016, but this past Christmas, they were on every kind of Christmas decoration you could think of.  I love them, so I made this Mug Rug, or small quilt.  I didn't have time before Christmas to get one made.  I'll put this one away until next year.

The back:

Here's a red truck Christmas decoration I bought before Christmas from Dollar General.  I also bought 2 dish towels with the truck on them, but they are packed away too deep for me to get out for a picture!

My husband loves the 1953 Chevrolet Truck, so I bought him this small model a couple of years ago for a gift.  He would love a real life size one, but oh well,.....

I love sewing Christmas items and I have a large plastic tote full of Christmas fabric.  I already have 3 Christmas Quilts, but I am thinking of making another one.

I would love to make some Christmas items all along all year.  Once November gets here, there's no time for it!

I've seen the red trucks and think they are precious! Your red truck is wonderful... you actually 'made' the truck, didn't you? I bought a Christmas ornament with a red truck for my neighbors this year. I like the idea of making Christmas all along the way, because it sure does sneak up on us, doesn't it? I remember hearing of a group who used to meet once a month, on the 25th of each month, to make a different Christmas ornament together. I had always thought that would be a fun thing to do. I'm happy for you that you have a snow day... enjoy!!!

I ordered these clips also and I love them. Putting the corner patches on military collars is so hard and these made it a breeze.

Glimpses of Home - A Little Bit of Fall

I've been enjoying Fall.  I love this time of year. Having a hubby who is retired is great.  He does so many things around the house. ...
