Sew Some Love

Welcome to the Sew Some Love linkup!  Please link-up any post about a project you're sewing for charity.

I'm officially out for Christmas break and sewing to my little heart's content!  I've been chipping away at my stack of Covered in Love tops ready for quilting. Yesterday I finished two, but you'll have to wait until a Friday to see the finished product.

I've also been working on a couple of personal projects. The vast majority of the sewing I do these days is for CiL so it's fun to sew for myself some.  First I got sucked into the Christmas Cottage Quilt-a-Long.  This is coming straight out of the scrap bins, which is my favorite kind of sewing!

Second I'm finally assembling the flying geese top I've been working on for a few months, in a vain hope of having it done by Christmas!

Covered in Love has been so blessed by donations from quilters, I want you all to see what each other have going on!  For purposes of the linky, I'm going to define "charity" really generally.  If you're sewing a quilt for you co-worker's mom with cancer or your friend's uncle who lost his home, that totally counts!  Anything you're sewing out of the goodness of your heart for someone outside you immediate circle of family and friends. 

Some Quilt Charities:

  1. I'm so glad you have lots of free time for sewing! And that you're stitching some fun quilts up for yourself. Yay!! I hope your winter break is nice and long. Are you on semesters or quarters?

  2. Sewing for yourself is always a good thing. Glad you have a little time for that during the busy holiday season. I'm loving that flying geese top.....flying geese are a favorite of mine in quilts. Happy sewing to you!
