Christmas sewing on the brain

I don’t know about you, but whatever extra little time I find here and there these days is dedicated to sewing Christmas presents. Well, knitting, too.

In spite of my busy-ness (is that where the word ‘business’ comes from?), quite unfortunately there isn’t much I can share here because of all the “interested parties” who tend to wander around here and who could see more than I intended them to… So all I can offer is a few sneak peeks.

A fun project I’m working on involves hexies… one of my favorite addictions! This is something I am working on mainly on Thursdays, when my sewing group meets. Hmm… I wonder what it’s going to be?

Other sewing projects are in very early stages, with nothing to show. But there is one project I can share freely, as it is very doubtful the recipients will ever come in here to see it. And this is fun, because it involves working with Julian. We are making a bed quilt together!

Julian is doing the initial piecing, and I will take over whenever the project gets too big for him to handle. It will be interesting to see how far he can go on his own.

Evenings I’ve been doing a lot of knitting. Some fun pieces I would love to share, but which will have to wait until after Christmas. Don’t want to spoil the surprise!

How about you? What kind of sewing are you doing these days?

    Can’t wait to see what comes out of the hexies! 🙂 I see Julian is very concentrated! 🙂 Wonderful! And you are knitting too… I used to knit a lot when I lived in Norway, but not much these days… Oh yes, I’m happy to say I have finished 4 Christmas gifts! Can’t tell what it is, because I suspect some of the recipients sneaks into your blog and read comments! 🙂 And I’ve been obsessed by some cute snowmen fabrics lately, have several projects to finish.

    I love all the hexies and I am wondering what it will be.
    Great how concentrated Julian sews.
    I knit a lot – mostly I knit socks. Your knitting looks so beautiful.

    I’m wondering what will merge from that hexies… some kind of tree??? a landscape??? well, I can wait… I’ve been working also with EPP, is what I’m teaching to my TWO friend-pupils right now.
    But last week I had to make a pause, for sewing two spanish-dance costumes for my daugther and her dance-mate. I hated that dresses!! but finally, they were finished the day before the performance, and surprinsingly for me, they looked wonderful in stage.

I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
