Sewing at Karen’s

1 Dec

Super fun weekend of sewing at Karen’s while the boys went hunting. We were successful, they were not.  But everyone had fun!

i worked on super tiny tumblers that I bought precut on our trip to Des Moines with kris and Neil.

And both Karen and I worked on cinnamon sticks that Heirloom Creations sold a few years ago.

Cinnamon sticks


Roughly 1500 2 inch finished half square triangles  were stitched.  Now to cut them apart, press and remove the papers.  I’m going to save that for another day. 🙂

Here is the tiny tumblers:

Note the quarter to show you the size.  Now I’m going to surround this with several (8 or 9) rounds of bigger tumblers.  But not today.


today was a work day.   So is tomorrow.  And the next day………but the weekend is coming peeps!  Only 5 days away.

      Yeah. That will be a bugger. May get the whole 5th season of fangers watched while pulling paper.

    Wow I am impressed. I struggle with big tumblers…tiny ones are way too daunting.
