Homespun Holiday Show N' Tell






Good morning Blogland Neighborhood !!! Today is the first day of the Homespun Holiday Show N' Tell . If you trot on over to Piece N Quilt you can see the links to all the participants who have actually completed projects for the Show and Tell. We here at MBIAJ Sewing Dept (aka Santa Kitty's Sweat Shop ) are, as usual, running a bit behind schedule and feeling like ......







.........this....













So, anyhow, since none of our Christmas Sewing Projects 2009 are yet completed, we thought we'd haul out some long lingering projects (that have at least gone from the doodle on a piece of scrap paper phase to actually started) from Christmas Past to show you (in hopes that the elves will show up soon and finish at least ONE of these things in the next few days ...... and throw in a tutorial to boot !!!)

OK ..... here goes .....


.........the "Comfort and Joy" wool applique future wall hanging ...



....this Christmas stitchery




.....a hand pieced Christmas quilt with a few preprinted panels thrown in and .....







........a soon to be wool candle mat (you can click on any of these pictures to make them bigger )





So there you have it folks ..... the MBIAJ Sewing Dept's (unfinished) Show N' Tell! Don't forget to zip over to Piece N' Quilt to see all of the other Show N' Tellers and join in yourself !!!

OK ... gotta go ..... getting and icy stare from Santa Kitty who is tapping her foot and pointing to her watch which means better get back to work in the sweat shop !


Be back soon (hopefully with a tutorial on one of these projects BEFORE Christmas.....hopefully) !

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

Beautiful projects Mar; and hey, IMHO you done good to get 'em off that paper :) I can't draw worth a hoot, but I've got some "papers" of my own (LOL). Loved the tour you and Boop took us on below and the "hot chocolate" below looks sooooooooo good even if it is still hot as blazes down South :)
