We normally have our local guild meetings every second Thursday evening of each month during the school year from September through June, as we meet in a nearby elementary school cafeteria.
However, sometimes we have to move the date due to something going on at the school … like this month! Our first meeting is this Thursday…and it just dawned on me that I had not done anything with our summer challenge fat quarter!
At the same time, I received an invite to a dear friend’s daughter’s house warming…sooooo, this little project turned out to be a “Twofer”. I love Twofers, don’t you??
I used some batik charm squares along with the purple batik fat quarter given for the summer challenge, to make a table runner that I can show at the guild meeting in two days…
and then it will be a gift, along with a matching candleholder and autumn candle, for the housewarming gift!! YAY!! A Twofer!!
Then, after making the table runner yesterday and going out this morning to find the candle holder and candle, I got home to remember that I wanted to make a new guild name tag. The one I had was made in 2000 and is beyond grody!!! Yucko!! Time for a new one!!! So, I spent this afternoon making a new one!!
I saw this one on Pinterest and thought it was so cute!
(http://megsmonkeybeans.blogspot.com/2012/02/petite-piecing.html) So that gave me the idea to make my nametag with a sewing machine on it!
I snagged this logo off the Bernina newsletter to use as my inspiration!!
I used graph paper to plan out my little sewing machine block.
Then went through my stash scraps to find the perfect fabrics in fun colors.
I knew I wanted to attach it to this cute sewing themed pin, which would make it easy to put on!
I am pleased with how it turned out and will be ready on Thursday now for our guild meeting!!
Sooooo, whatcha working on???
