W.I.P. Wednesday: Stockings, continued

7:30:00 AM

Hi all!

Well, I'm still working on our new Christmas stockings - but, by next Wednesday, I hope to have them as well as my dining room curtains done and be working on the next project on the list!

On the design wall right now:

3 stocking fronts done, waiting to be quilted, trimmed &  backed;
my flying geese blocks from my Color Bee.
I think they're gonna look cute when they're done!
3 down, 1 more to go!
 And a non-sewing/quilting related Work In Progress. I'm re-decorating our non-functional fireplace.

The previous tenant here painted the inside this rose/brick color, and it looked terrible (in my opinion...)

So, my plan was to re-paint it white on the interior, and then jazz it up a bit. So far, just the paint is done:
Hopefully I'll have it done by the weekend - we'll see - I have to dig some power tools out of the basement storage...he he. Girl power! Check back to see the finished product.

In other news! 

December 24 I have a Moda Bakeshop feature being published on their blog, and I'll have the same post here as well! It's a great project - featuring that gorgeous line that everyone loves - Marmalade!!

As well, add a reminder to your calendar - starting December 9, I'll be having a giveaway, so check back to enter!

Over the next few weeks I'll be having a second giveaway - once I'm finished the paper-pieced stockings, there'll be a tutorial posted here with tips and prizes!

Linking up to W.I.P. at Freshly Pieced today!

I just got back into sewing this week after almost 2 months (went on vacation and have been super busy since coming back). I am going to work on the bee blocks this week (they look great by the way). I have so much to catch up on.
