Tuesday Night Sewing Date!

What a wonderful sewing date tonight!

First we played "Show-and-Tell"

Mom showed all her purchases while away up north for the weekend, Dani shared her fabrics for her first project, and I gave them both their Sherbet mini-quilts! I know it's not kindergarten anymore...but I just love "Show-and-Tell"!!

My girl, Dani, joined us tonight for her first sewing lesson on her new (used) machine! And she got her first project finished!!

This girl loves the ocean, and has ever since I've known her. So she picked up these great fabrics to make her first set of coasters. An easy project to do for her first time sewing. And let me tell you, they are adorable! In college, her room was always white and blue with pictures of the beach, sand and candles. So very her :o)

While Mom was working with her, I finished my tea towel for the tea towel and recipe exchange between the Charming Girls Quilt Club. Mine is going to Esther in Colorado, and I really hope she loves it! Tea towels are our next project for next Tuesday, something mom and I thought would be another easy project for Dani to do. Esther's towel will be sent out tomorrow, so I will show a pic once I hear that she has received it. No spoiling here! But it's too cute, so I just hope it gets there fast!!

What was your project tonight??

Cleaning my quilt studio! Went a little crazy this past weekend and just HAD to start some quilted Christmas tree ornaments. Made too much of a mess with books, patterns, magazine articles for ideas and inspiration and fabrics strewn all over. But now I'm back to some semblance of order and can see what I'm doing again!
