Clamshell Club - 11/30/2010

 142 clamshells basted in November.  A weekend trip with built-in babysitters really helped me make some progress.  Whatever is left in the stack on the right is what I have left to baste. 

December will probably not have much progress since I am busy working on lots of Christmas sewing.  After that I can let myself work on these while watching TV.  I'm excited to put these together and see how it all looks . . .

Just a little sneaky peek at one of my Christmas projects . . . a cookie if you guess what it is.

It was quite the package day today - diapers for Sam, the comic book backer boards I ordered to use for fabric organization, and my Connecting Threads order.  I've been really good the past few months, not buying much of any stash and only a few bits and pieces for upcoming projects (and everything on sale).  So I was very excited to open up the box and find:

Bed & Breakfast 2.5" strips (for The Farmer's Wife quilt)
Golden Afternoon 2.5" strips - just because I've wanted them or a long time
Christmas 5" Squares
Quilters Candy Solid 2.5" Strips (to use in a Paintbox Quilt a la Oh Fransson!)
And this quilt kit - it's a crib size, but I thought it was cute.  It will go in the guest room.

And some progress shots - I can't divulge any details of this project, but you can see I've made 4 of these particular nine-patches.
