I had a brain slippage when I got out of bed yesterday morning. It wasn't until noon when I realized it was Wednesday and I had put up another blog post instead of this one.
I have still been working away when I can on my projects. What you won't see pictured are the selvage strips I am still gathering to start a selvage rug, the thin strips I added to my doll rug bag, and numerous other strips and squares for future projects.
You also won't see any progress on yellow for this months color with the soscrappy blog color challenge. I did get my back squares and batting squares cut and hope to have those blocks made by next Wednesday.
I finished the Christmas yo-yo table runner, which will be listed in my etsy shop once I am done with this post.
I worked more on the doll rugs for the bedding sets, and I also got to work on getting some of the pillows done for the sets as well.
I found the last 3 colors for the lockerhook rug that I a working on and got them sewn and ready to finish up the rug.
On the quilt shop hop each shop gave us pattern for a disappearing block. I only seen 2 that I really wanted to make, so I did just that. I like them! One is disappearing 4 patch and the other is a disappearing 9 patch. In the meantime, I seen a blog last week where she made fabric boxes for a quick homemade gift. That got me thinking about Christmas and I plan now to make some of the boxes.
Also on the shop hop I bought a postcard pattern. I needed something inexpensive to buy to spin their prize wheel, on which I won a spool of 100% cotton thread. The pattern I chose uses 2 1/2 inch strips. You guessed it, I just couldn't wait to start on it since I already had a stack of strips cut. The pattern is called Lexington and I hope that by next week I will have have at least one of the blocks out together for it.

Add some vintage sparkle to your life with Vintage Sparkle -- 15 Festive Ornaments to Fold, Fill, and Hang.
Published in October 2015 by PAPress, these boxes are so pretty and too cool.
They come in a sturdy 5 x 9 x 1.5 inch box as shown:
My 3 granddaughters couldn't wait to help me put the 15 boxes together. Easy to fold and made of a sturdy card stock. Each has bold colors, geometric patterns, and a flash of gold.
They come with gold string for optional hanging. Each box is 2.5 inches when assembled.
These can be used for about any kind of decorating. Hang them, or sit them around.
They can be used for cute little gift boxes. There are actually many ways you can use these.
We even used them as part of a game at my daughter's baby shower!
What an added bonus too to have the sturdy box that they come in that can be used for storage, or use it as a gift as well.
Will you add a little Vintage Sparkle to your life?
