Fantastic Friday Again

Friday evening was another of the Fantastic Fridays at The Quilted Cottage. Connie and I have the best time there and always meet new quilters from the area who add to the pleasure of the evening. The menu for Friday was broccoli/cheese soup in a bread bowl and ice cream sundae for dessert. I brought along several small projects that have been sitting on my table waiting for me to finish. Yes, you are seeing a pumpkin in January. I've wanted to make this little wallhanging for years and finally have the pumpkin part done. The pillowcase will go to my grandson, Ian, who is an avid Star Wars fan. Don't tell him, though, it's a surprise. Both of these projects were made with my stash.

In addition to the pumpkin and pillowcase, I gave my friend, Jane, about six yards of fabric from my stash Thursday when we were sewing Comfort Quilts for the UGRR (Women's Shelter). She has already cut out four Joey bags and 12 Lutheran World Relief school kit bags. She works quickly. Little by little, my stash will get smaller.

Nothing like getting a project complete in plenty of time for the coming season . . . it'll be here before we know it.
