We hosted a silent auction (Give More) along with a Christmas program (Worship Fully). My children and husband all participated in the program while I made a few items for the auction, where 100% of the proceeds went directly to Charity: Water (Love All). I really wanted to stick with the theme of water and had the perfect fabric in my stash to do it for my first auction entry. I made a pillow and table-runner set featuring water drops.
The second item I donated to the auction was my Lava Lamp Quilt. I had been hanging on to this quilt for several months, but it was the first thing I thought of when approached to make some items for the auction.
The silent auction was a HUGE success and I'm already thinking about what I can make for next year. Before I can focus on next year, I need to finish the two quilts I'm making for Christmas gifts (Spend Less) this year. I finished quilting my Garden Lattice quilt and I'm binding it whenever I have a free moment to just sit and hand stitch.
I've also started quilting my broken chevron quilt. I debated between using a light grey or a dark grey thread for the quilting. With the help of friends on Instagram, I'm going with the dark grey thread. I hope to have the quilting finished by Thursday.
I hope everyone has a blessed holiday season and I'll see you in 2015! Here's a little holiday greeting from my two precious kids.
