This has been a crazy busy sewing week. I've been trying to finish up all of my holiday sewing so I could get my machine to my dealer for a well-deserved and much needed cleaning. After the 13 quilts I made this year and various other projects, it is so thoroughly necessary. I think I'm about done, just one more binding to machine on one side, and then Betsy is off to get herself a nice cleaning.
Urban Lattice quilt along - It's off in the mail! It will get to its final destination hopefully by the end of the week, which is a huge relief. I can't wait to hear from my brother on Christmas and hopefully get some wonderful pictures of the quilt in use.
A trio of holiday pillows - I couldn't stop at just one. :) Stay tuned for the full reveal tomorrow!
Scrappy monster pillow for the munchkin (formerly a robot pillow - it didn't work out!) - Done and hidden away in a closet the munchkin can't get to. He is either going to love this or hate this, I'm not sure yet...
Pillowcase for the munchkin - I wound up making two of these, and they are all done. I was on a full-on pillow kick this weekend, it felt like Santa's Pillow Warehouse at my house!
Mug rug for my mother - Done! I don't love how it turned out, though, so I'm working on another one...
That Girl... quilt along - I am painfully slow at hand-stitching binding on, but I'm determined to get better at it, so I'm still plugging away at it, ever so slowly.
Mug rug for my mother take two - See above! I'm not sure I love what I did for the first one, so I'm working on another one...
Something embroidered - AnneMarie has convinced me to give embroidery a try, so when I take my machine in for a cleaning later this week (and have to live without it until just after Christmas, eek!), I am going to try some embroidery. Stay tuned to hear about the epic fail that surely will result...

Don't forget to check out the linky at Freshly Pieced every Wednesday for more works in progress!
And mark your calendar...I'm going to be hosting a linky next Monday, December 20th. The end of the year is fast approaching, so I'm going to post some of my ideas for sewing and quilting next year, and I'd love to see you guys do the same and join in the fun! Share concepts, inspiration, stacks of fabric, lists, whatever you like. I adore lists, they make me happy, and I can't wait to see what you all are planning for next year. :)
