Le Petite~This & That ~Butter Churn~

I love/hated doing this pattern. I loved it because it was so cute. I love all the little pieces. I love the many different ways that you can turn this little wall hanging into something that you like. I loved that it was small.
I hated the beige fabric I picked. It was like a prom fabric. It was with all the Kona solids but this has a different feeling to it. It is a little slippery. I think some of even shrunk when I ironed it. It must have had polyester in it. I hated that I waited so long to do it because it really did not take that long to finish it.

I used a Kona Beige color ( I do not remember now what it was called). I used charms out of 2 Charm Packs of Happy Daisy by Urban Chiks for Moda bought at Quilt Taffy. Thank you ladies! I hope that a top will qualify it a finished. I will not be able to do anything else to it tonight. I have an Ornament Swap Party to go to.

One Thing One Week Challenge

My goal for this challenge will be to finish my family Christmas gifts. I have 9 to finish. They are a stitchery. I need to finish them and get them into frames. I am hoping that this is a goal I can achieve. I really want to get this crossed off my list.

Well I can't leave without a picture so here is one of my husband and me on one of our motorcycle trips last year. We went to The Crater's of the Moon near Twin Falls Idaho. Loved that trip.
This next one was taken on our way to Lincoln City Oregon. It was our 20th wedding anniversary trip. We did not take the motorcycle. It was a wonderful trip. I can't believe that we have been married for 20 years.
Thank you for stopping by.
