First up was getting the next commissioned item through the quilted stage and it is now just waiting for binding to be put on and sewn down. My aim is to get that finished up this week so I can get it in the mail with everything else headed to the same address.
Next up was making a set of flannel pillowcases. These will be a Christmas present this year. Yeah for actually getting started early making gifts for a change.
Also finished this week was a snack mat that features a cross-stitch cardinal and cardinal fabric. It finished out at 18" wide by 9" or so tall. It too will be a Christmas gift this year for a friend. The same fabric that was used on the front side was used for the backing of it.
The last set of finishes was getting the binding onto 4 of the snack mats/mug rugs that I'd quilted last week.
Up to work on this week - making progress on the commissioned leather knife sheaths (ideally getting them done so I can be paid for them and the materials), binding the last two snack mats that are quilted, getting the backing sewn for both of the two commissioned quilts that I need to get quilted, and then getting the quilts basted so that I can start quilting them.
1. Medical insurance that pays well.
2. Knowing that God will supply the means to pay my share of the medical expenses that are out there.
3. Knowing when information for next years contract will be sent to us at school.
