Sometimes...a project with no direction is exactly what I need to get my creative side in gear!

How about YOU?

A CHRISTMAS START!

fabrics ready

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas here at The Quilted Studio...so let's get a move on and dig through my STASH!

It is during these times of uncertainty that I am so happy I have been a STASH Builder and Fabric Hoarder of sorts!

For months...nearly a year now...fabrics seem to be scarcely available and still remain at their highest prices in decades!

I dgress...

My stash is NICE...but you must remember...I didn't start this little hobby of mine YESTERDAY...rather over 30 years ago!  None-the-less...I am thrilled to see I have a good selection of REDS and GREENS to get me started on my newest Holiday Project...

Let's see what happens next...

Quilt ON!

stabilizers

Put on your dancing shoes...que the Holiday Music and dance the HAPPY DANCE...

My stabilizers have arrived here at The Quilted Story!

I digress...

It has taken me 4 SOLID Months...

4 SOLID MONTHS...

to make this happen!

You know...because of COVID!

Am I the only one here who is sick of hearing that?

Can I get an AMEN?

I began watching my bolts of Stabilizers dwindle down to the bare nothings since March...

YES...

I use a TON of Stabilizers....and when I say TONS...

I really mean BOLTS!

BOLTS AND BOLTS AND BOLTS!

I LOVE that word...

Back to my blog post at hand...

LOL!

Here in this picture is my HAPPY Place...where my newly purchased Bolts of Stabilizers are posing for a serious Photo Shoot.

You don't photo shoot your Stabilizers you say...

REALLY?

OK...it's just ME!

Here's my LIST of Happiness...

-Fusible Thermolam

-Fusible Heat and Bond Lite

-Fusible Decorbond

-SF101

-Heavy Gauge Clear Vinyl

-Fusible Fleece

So...Let's get started and cut into this gems...

my Scissors and Rotary Cutters are all fired up!

Stitch ON!

HAVE YOU MET THE PUMPKIN MAN?

pumpkin man for nicole christmas 2020

Have YOU met the Pumpkin Man? 

My last blog post indicated that it was going to be my final Halloween Home Decor item for the season...but alas...I LIED...

Well...not on purpose anyway!

I simply FORGOT about the PUMPKIN Man!

Years ago...I began making this adorable Pumpkin Man for the perfect Halloween Decoration that served an EXTRA purpose!  You see...the head of this cute guy is actually one of those plastic halloween pumpkin buckets that the kids use for their night of trick or treating...aka "Candy Haul Night"!

So while your Special Pumpkin Guy adorns your front bench or table corner...because his body base is a wooden block...you can also fill his bucket head with all sorts of treats!

Now...there's a PLAN!

So...pull out your Halloween Fabrics and get your Pumpkin Man ready for the big night...you know the Little Kid in you wants too!
