Monday Makers #1

My bloggy friend Vera posted today about a linky party that has just started today - it's called Monday Makers!, and basically, we get off of our duffs and start something creative on Mondays - in my house that would be housework.  NOT!!  Of course it would be SEWING, lol!  So I hunkered down in my dungeon sewing room and picked some projects to work on during the next week.

Future D9P quilt :D
 First up is a strawberry D9P (disappearing 9 patch) quilt that I've been planning for a while to work on.  The blocks will be made from those 3 prints, and the backing is the pink gingham.  I started cutting out the squares, and will work on this one slowly over the next month or so.

Next up are some superhero capes for some kidlets I know - these are planned as Christmas gifts :)  The orange fabric will be the backing for all 3 of them.  I got monkeys cut out today. 

I decided late tonight that I needed another project, as hubby and I are headed Stateside this weekend and I need a project to work on in the car.  This will be a zipper pouch with a tiny little fox cross-stitched on the outside using waste canvas.  The fox is only about an inch square on 14 count cloth - I should certainly be able to complete it in the car on the drive to Niagara Falls :)

Posting to:  Monday Makers! #1 :)  Vera, I hope you'll be participating next week!  ;)

  2. LOVE the fabric combo for the strawberry D9P. You just can't go wrong with gingham. Are you by any chance picking up fabric this weekend?

  3. Love your fabric choices for the D9P quilt! That is going to be pretty! I like that you are using gingham (gives me a good idea too! Love the cape fabric and that fox is too cute for words! Have a safe trip this weekend! Hugs, Mickie

  4. Nice party idea! It's about the only thing I could get done with all the lawn watering necessary to try to get the grass back.

    Have a lovely time stateside!

  5. The fox cross-stitch is going to be so cute! The capes sound like awesome gifts, and a DP9 is fun. Glad to have found you through Monday Makers! :)

  6. Can't wait to see the capes, will Nick be modelling them? The cross stitch fox looks like a cutie!

  7. I think I need that little fox pouch-to-be! It will certainly be cute! I'll have to keep a pouch like this in mind to make :)

  8. Waving hi from just east of Toronto! I found you through Monday Makers
