Sometimes sewing room time is random...

So I pulled this rock for the day over a week ago--I guess I needed to hang on to it for a bit

This fabric will become a new pillow cover later

Do any of you have patterns on the back of random papers?

I go through a lot of post its-this one is to remind me I have the single hole needle plate on--forgetting this can be disastrous.  You can do serous damage to your machine, not just break the needle :-(

 I do keep some odd company in my sewing room---but they are many times inspirational-as is the Bible. Especially if I am working on a prayer shawl/quilt. Another source of imspiration and calmness- The "I Love You Mom" book my daughter got me

I think it is about time to break out new thimbles: 

 And here is the pillow cover-for my hubby-frogs are an inside family joke...

 Old enough to have had an already re-covered pillow inside, so it got a brand new pillow form as well..

It replaced this 7+ year old hard worn pillow cover

I have also been working on Christmas gifts...cant show them -but this is one I did in years past

What have you been sewing?

Shop hop fun, fall, and....

OH my I feel behind!

Time seems to be flying by and Christmas seems inordinately close, especially with this weather on the mountain:

    I have been working on Christmas presents, but I did take the time for a shop hop:Sierra 2 Sage Shop Hop
  This years shop hop was a vast improvement over the last few–and with an :ugly fabric" challenge to run with next years–I am certain next year will be just a good. I checked in with those shop that had a Facebook presence-maybe those that didn’t will have next year.

These are the "ugly fabrics" that I collected for next years ugly fabric contest :
