Nine weeks to go . . . Wow! I can’t believe it! The weeks have gone by sooooo fast. What will I create this week? I decided to make me a pair of slippers. I found a free pattern on Pretty Prudent’s website. This was my first time using Minky fabric, so messy, but I’m pleased with the end results.
Ten weeks to go . . . What will I create this week?
Another busy week, so I had to make something quick. Fleece Fun has several free fleece hat patterns; many variations from baby to adults. I made a quick basic fleece hat. Click the link for website and video Fleece Fun
Eleven weeks to go . . . My guild, NJMQG (North Jersey Modern Quilt Guild) has a potholder swap, so I decided to make it this week’s project, criteria: 8×8 traditional block with a modern twist. I made a rail fence block on point, and added a decorative stitch.
Twelve weeks to go . . . I went off the beaten path for this week’s project. My church had a Paint and Praise Fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey victims. It was a most enjoyable and calming event with food, fellowship, and fundraising. So, this week I painted. I call my painting My Lady In Red. I know this may not count, but I painted every brush stroke you see. If you ever get a chase to attend a Paint and Sip or Paint and Praise event, Do It!
Thirteen weeks to go . . . This week’s project was a joint venture; worked on screen printing t-shirts with my oldest grandson for the Breast Cancer Walk on Sunday, October 15th.
I learned how to screen print at the Newark Print Shop. They have a weekly print club (Wednesdays from 6:00 – 10:00 pm); you pay $10.00 and they teach you the process of screen printing. So, I’m passing on what I’ve learned to my oldest grandson.
Posted pictures of my grandson’s first screen prints.
