Cutting and Sewing...

 I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  We certainly did.  Lot's of fun enjoyed by all.  

A few days before Christmas I was at Walmart and found this yarn marked down to $2 because the label was gone.  I bought it and made this scarf.  Not too bad for a first time, I don't guess. 
 Here is a close up of the yarn, you can see it has a tiny silver thread through it.  The yarn is actually called, Ribbons.  I love it. 
 One of the gifts that the boys got me for Christmas was a new mat and rotary cutter!!!  I was soooo excited as my mat was in horrible condition. 
 So what's a girl to do with a new mat and rotary cutter???  Pop in Gone With the Wind and....
 Cut out 3 quilts!!!  LOL!  Yep, that's what I did.  The first two piles, I still need to cut out the background fabric for those but the third one is all colored fabrics. 
 As I started cutting, I kept telling myself that I was just cutting kits for later use as I have a million other things to finish first but I started sewing the 3rd one together.  LOL!  I know, I really should not have done that but I did.  It is called, 4 Patch Flip. 
 I have also been working on my Bonnie Hunter mystery too!  That's all for tonight as I will probably head to bed soon.  Richard is working tonight and the boys are in there watching a movie.

Pretty scarf--looks very soft.
Cut out three whole quilts? My goodness, you stayed really focused to get all that done. I guess a long movie helps with that. : )
I'll be interested to see this 4-patch flip you started making. Nothing like a new project going into the new year!
