In progress

J’s Christmas blanket
I’ve got the binding to sew down and the label to attach, and then I’m done!

I had an awful time attaching the binding the other night — my machine kept skipping stitches even though I was using my walking foot, so I wasted a lot of time trying to figure out what was wrong. The next night, I took my walking foot apart, cleaned and oiled it, changed to a thicker needle, and increased my stitch length. That stopped the skipping, yay!

Cosmo knocked down the stroller in order to get at my pile of fabric, so it’s not all nicely stacked like this anymore. Harrumph!

Sew Mama Sew Advent Calendar

I cut out two sets of small leaves, but the paper for my wonder under didn’t want to come off nicely. Poop. My other larger pieces were fine, though.

Skelly for my niece

I ran out of stuffing and am waiting for more to arrive, so Mr. Skelly’s channeling the Knights of Ni for now. I’m tickled that I finally used up the last of the bag of stuffing that I’ve had since high school!
