I was hoping to have the t-shirt quilt done for my last finish for 2022, but that just didn't work out. The good news is my first finish for 2023 will be in the first week of 2023! I have circled the area I have left to quilt.

I was just too tired last night to do any sewing. I have been at work at 6 a.m. every day except today. So last night I wrapped the six placemats that were done and opened the Xmas present I bought for myself.

Here is my progress on the placemats. I sewed together the binding, but they still need pressed.

I've been too busy - darn it! After work it was get another covid shot, pick up meds and get gas before the big storm. Got home and threw in a load of laundry, then worked on the placemats. Three more done

After I got a perm last evening, I stopped by JoAnn's to get some of the batting I needed t finish the placemats. They didn't have any - oh I am so shocked! They never have anything I need in that store! I went down the street to Hobby Lobby and they had what I need at 40% off. So now I can get back to the placemats tonight.

It was a busy weekend. Friday night I had company, and we made a pecan pie and a cheesecake. These were for my nephew, SIL, and brother. The girls had never made either including pie crust from scratch. We had a good time. They both know how to beat an egg now!

I've had a busy day and just found a few minutes to post. Last night I had to do some cleaning up and wrap more presents. The brown wrapped packages are for the annual What-a-palooza.

I got some of the border done last evening. It was a lot of winding bobbins and changing out thread colors.

When I got home from work, I watched the special on the Smithsonian Channel I had taped about Dale Chihuly. I have always been fascinated with his work. I was lucky enough years ago to go to the botanical garden in Pittsburg to see his work exhibited. After that it was a load of laundry and quilting another t-shirt.

I was so tired on Friday and Saturday it was hard to get myself to move. I did hem the sleeves to a jacket, fixed a skirt hem, and finished up 10 more tote bags to get them off my sewing table.
