Occupy Your Sewing Room - Two Stealth Flimsies :D



It's all Flamingo Santa's fault!


Occupy Sewing Room


I had planned on using my Occupy Day to whip up the Christmas gifts I want to do this year, but he said, "Naaa - you should work on this kit instead."







I was weak after a month of stressful health insanity with our poor kitty, culminating with an eye removal on Wednesday and my term project due on Thursday - tired of doing what had to be done, and needing to do something to replenish my batteries. Layered on top of being bummed that I didn't have a single thing to show for the Christmas Quilt Show and the fact that I had two untouched kits sitting in my stash room already. . .   I caved.  :D  And I'm so very glad I did. It was a perfect day.


And I now have TWO Christmas flimsies:


A Holly Jolly Snowman (made with the "Winter Welcome" pattern by Coach House Designs)






And A Snowy Day in the Woods (made with the Snow Days pattern by Janet Locey)



I'm a happy woman.

Geez- you've had a rough bout. They both look fabulous. I'm glad they helped recharge the battery. :)

Sewing Therapy...so much cheaper than a visit to the doctor. Both quilts are so pretty! Hope your kitty is recovering well...it's so stressful to see them stitched up but I'm sure he will feel much better.

Enjoy your day!

Wow, great work. I love both the quilts. I have ALWAYS loved that snowman panel. Had an idea of making one for my front porch entry with some little lights in the sky. Didn't get to it this year or last - but the idea is still in my head to do it. Maybe for next winter. LOL

Both are wonderful - and I saw the words 'happy and fun' and that is what it all should be about. Thank you for sharing.

Both of these are lovely -- but I really am taken with the 'A Snowy Day in the Woods' piece! :)

What a week you have had. So sorry to hear about kitty. Your projects are fabulous on the other hand. I am sure it was a needed diversion. Now about that Flamingo Santa... Do I love him or what!!

Emma said...

Your projects are wonderful. Flamingo Santa had a great idea.

Lisa said...

Great quilts. It's great to start with a panel. You get a big boost!

I love the houses in the woods! Are the houses pieced blocks next to a fussy-cut block? Either way I think it turned out fantastic!

Erin @ Missy Mac Creations said...

Cute snowman. Loving the houses too. Especially like the how the print between the blocks brings it all together. Awesome! :)
