What a busy few weeks! I am beyond SICK and TIRED of cleaning this house every day in readiness for possible showings. Selling your home is such a pain… in the knees, shoulders, back… ugh!! I don’t think this house has ever been so clean for so long!! But I do so appreciate your fingers being crossed for us to sell it soon!!
My family was here two days after Christmas and stayed for a week! We had such fun! Lot’s a food and sharing and games and movies! Then back to reality when they left… more cleaning and clearing out of the house for showings. You end up removing all the stuff that makes your house your home… hate how plain it looks, but the agents say this will help the house sell. UGH!!
Because of all this house for sale stuff in the month of December, I did not finish my son’s t-shirt quilt for one of his Christmas presents. So, as soon as my company left and the house was back to normal, I finally got back in the sewing room and completed his quilt!!
The shirts were trimmed to 15 1/2” square and some that only had small designed were pieced into four patch squares.
The bad thing about guy t-shirt quilts is that most all the shirts are black or navy or white…yuck!! How come guys don’t wear colors??
Anyway, I found some awesome Ford Mustang fabric for the backing, which is perfect as he loves Mustangs!
I gave it to him yesterday and he loved it! YAY!! And it was only 2 weeks late!!
I have packed up all I can in the house until it’s sold, so I can get back to more sewing. I fell in love with this quilt on Pinterest-
And bought the pattern and have been going through my Kaffe stash to duplicate it!! Here’s the link for the pattern-
So, what have you been sewing on this new year??
Yogi says hello!!
