I ended up gifting my little Round Robin table topper to my son in law, the winemaker. He really seems to appreciate my efforts, and it pleases me to see that he uses the little table toppers and other seasonal quilts I give him. So, that seemed to be a win/win kind of deal. He said he liked the colors, and since this is a fairly good sized table topper, it will cover the majority of the top of his kitchen table. And it is super festive, right?
Pattern was Mon Ami, a Schnibbles offering by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. I made considerable alterations in the number of blocks and ending size of the project. I used mostly one charm pack of Round Robin by Kathy Schmitz, produced by Moda a few years back. I think the results turned out pretty cute, and I am glad it could go to an appreciative home.
Isn't that border adorable? Yes, must use that in future projects.
Eva is on holiday break from school until early January, so we will be spending a lot of time together. She came home today from first grade with her nicely wrapped class Christmas gifts for her parents. It's tricky these days, with kids coming from multiple households. They mostly have to make at least two gifts, one for Mom and another for Dad. At any rate, when I picked her up from school, her mom's gift was smashed to pieces. She was pretty upset, of course, but Nana always has a plan.
I went on to Pinterest with her, and we searched for cute Christmas ornaments kids could make. Have you all heard of Polymer Clay, specifically Sculpey Clay? Well, after a quick Amazon Prime order, I think Eva and I are in business. Just wait to see what we come up with next week! We will save the day and come up with some adorable replacement ornaments for the fragile ones that were lost this week. Let's just say, there may be some snowmen ornaments in our future...
Have a great weekend everyone!
