LTRTCWSA - 10/01/12


Check out all of us who link up with Judy L. at Patchwork Times on Mondays.
We have some awesome stuff on our walls!
Well, THEY do - ME - not so much sometimes - ;))

Another episode of -

Leisurely Turtle Race to Christmas with Squirrels Allowed - ;))

I have the attention span of a gnat -

So I set aside the placemats -

I’ll bind them when I need something -

Brain-numbing to do - ;))

I wanted to check out the patterns -

Play with fabric choices -

And maybe fuse some applique -

So I pulled out Bottoms Up! -
Bottoms Up! - (c) 2001 - Calico Moon Handcrafts -

And Gingerbread ‘n Hearts -
Gingerbread ‘n Hearts - (c) 1995 - Dinah’s Quilts & Accents - 18" x 21"

I pulled some fabrics -

Remember the blue?
I used that for the outer border -
On “Christmas Lights” - here -

Too cute!
Had to have some “Bottoms” with that - ;))

Cut out the base -

And one -

Became three -

They still need toesies and heels -
And some other stuff -
But they are going to be CUTE!!

And then I drew out the pieces -
For the Gingerbread boy and girl -
And fused and cut the brown parts -

When I fused the girl’s dress -
To the RIGHT side of the fabric -

I knew right then and there -

That it was time for my nap - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. LOL, you remind me of my husband--naps, pre-naps, etc but one of these days I will be doing the same thing, no doubt.

    What a cute pattern! I can't wait to see this one finished up.

    I gotta quilt something I volunteered to do as time is of the essence for this one but then i am back to playing with fabric too. YOU and Linda have fun for both us, okay?

  2. haha So a person's NOT supposed to fuse to the right side? I do that all the time! I just call it practice.
    Both of those patterns are cute, cute!

  3. tear off the paper and it will be a 'shiney' dress :-) Just be careful when fusing the other side...... Okay, well, it was just a thought anyway......

  4. Very cute "bottoms". I can't tell you how many times I iron something wrong or sew wrong sides together. My seam ripper and I are on very familiar terms.


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
