Busy Season

This is a busy time for all of us! Besides being a busy holiday month, it’s one of the months I do our big newsletter, and we have a lot going on in the shop!

I showed two projects in our Creative Sewing Club meetings this month. The first one was the “Sun’s Up” placemats (A17754), using the 10 Degree Wedge Ruler (24171)

Here Lacy learned how helpful the Gypsy Cutting Gizmo (47319) is in chain piecing.Here she tested the placemat before I trimmed the sun.

My other project was the Slicker Tote (A18878) by our friend Joan at Lazy Girl Designs. I got to try out two of her new Sew Lazy products, and I love them! Slicker Glossy Vinyl enhances the fabric and makes it indescribably beautiful! The body the tote has is achieved with her Stiff Stuff!  

 (I got this photo of my tote just before Lacy knocked it over to climb in!)

The Sew Lazy product line is color coded – blue for the two sew-ins, (Dreamy Sew-in and Stiff Stuff,) and hot pink (think of your hot iron) for the fusibles, (Fusi-Bond Lite, Slicker, Face-it Soft and Firm, and Dreamy Fusible.) Note – If you’ve signed up for our Gift Bag emails, you’ll see the Slicker Tote on Day 10.

If I don’t “talk” to you before then, besides being busy, we hope you’ll have a safe and very happy holiday season!
