Paw Print Fleece Scarves

Well I missed my Wed. blogging about my hump-day happiness, and my Wed. workshop doings.....
I was cutting fleece scarves, assembly line style the entire day that I spent at the workshop. When I came home, I stayed up really late sewing them....& was too pooped to move! Here are a couple of pics of those that I did get fringed out, & ready to wear.
Paw Print Fleece Scarves

The one on the left is cut every inch....the one on the right is cut every 1/2 inch creating the fringe. That is my favorite one on the right.

On my mannequin...whom I found in a dumpster......isn't she great! The price was good too:) This scarf was cut at every inch to create the fringe. I had never worked with fleece before, so this was my initiation project. I found it to be quite easy, but it dulls your rotary cutter very quickly. Also you need a dedicated cutting mat solely for fleece......or use the backside that doesn't have the grids.
These measure 7 1/2 inches wide x 60 long. You can see the other scarves if you click on my flickr photo stream button.
I'm a little late on this as well, but Happy Veteran's Day! I support our troops, past present, & future!

Progress Today on The Christmas Quilt

My Wed. workshop was FABULOUS!!!
I had enough time to not only get 1 project ready to quilt, but I also got an old WIP ready to quilt. YAY!!!
1st up~my poinsettia Christmas quilt.....I looked  through all of my yardage...& I have LOTS... for a peach color for the accent border....well no dice on the peach. Next choice was yellow that is found in the flower centers....I am so glad that I talked myself into really pops!
So the accent border is a yellow print, & the final border are more of the Christmas Trees. The quilt is now layered & pinned.

So what do you think about the yellow?

Project #2 is a Christmas Table Runner that Kimba designed for 1 of our Yahoo groups....I think it was from I have had this pieced for a very long time.....Now it's ready to be quilted too.

Today was a very great day! Happy Hump Day to all of you.
