Weekend Projects...

This weekend was spent working on various projects... :o) First off, I finished up Sara Bear. She is for my mom for Christmas. I had her made, I just needed to "age" her and add her ribbon and flower... (Kit from The Old Pincushion Etsy shop.)
And check out this BEAUTIFUL hang tag that my friend Laurie, from Indulge Your Shelf, made to go with Sara.... Here is the front:
And here is the back:
Thank you again, Laurie! :o)
And last but not least... 10 Christmas Flannel fat quarters + backing = YUMMY!
I had some Christmas flannel FQs that I had gotten from The Nauvoo Quilt Company Etsy shop this past summer, that I didn't know what I wanted to do with... So I decided to cut the FQs into 3" squares and see how many 9-patch blocks it would make. Turns out it'll make more than 36 blocks, which is how many I used to make this little snuggly throw. A piece of flannel for the back, and there ya go! :o)

You're been a busy bee, as always. Sweet bear for your mother, and that cuddly Christmas throw looks warm and soft.

Wow, you always amaze me with how much you accomplish! Sara is so cute!

Your flannel quilt is terrific. That will be so nice to snuggle under. And to think only 10 fat quarters, great bargain I think. The bear is so darling and that gift tag is great. Sounds like your all set for Christmas.

Your flannel quilt is gorgeous! I love those colors and what is better than a 9-patch!! Adorable!

You have been busy, and are getting so much done! Way to go, girl!

Hey, I was looking at the tag photo and I think the button on the round metal tag might have slid a bit in the mail -- it was supposed to be centered on the tag. Or is that just the angle of the photo?
