Sweat Shop Monday

Today was a holiday for the three of us, 
Gidget, The Kid and myself,
so we decided another
sweat shop day was in order.
We keep saying we need to do this more often,
but it only happens about twice a year.

I needed to work on a charity wreath for an auction 
later this month.  I searched Pinterest for something festive.

This is a painted floral template that I attached strips of tulle too.
Then I glued on glittery stars from Target.
Very easy and a nice outcome I think.
But, there is glitter everywhere.
So if you see me in the next few days with glitter 
on my face, just smile and nod.

The other wreath I was going to try was popcorn strung 
and wrapped around a paper plate with the center cut out.
HORRIBLE!  I gave up pretty quickly.
(You can see it is already in the trash.)
The kid was laughing at me because 
I was spewing a few choice words!

The kid decided to work on an UFO that 
has been hanging around for about ten years, (at least)!
She had cut up all her old button down shirts
and kept the polo horses for little accents.

She decided on a sixteen patch layout.

Here is her finish.
She gave up on this pretty quickly.  Hehe.
"A baby quilt is fine."

Gidget brought a bag to finish.
It is a gift that she gave and then took back to finish.
I think we've all done that at one time or another!

Gidget is the Queen of bag making!
Here is her finish.

 Gidget was on a roll today,
She whipped out this quilt, 
(that she was working on at the last sweat shop day!)
and layered it and got it mostly finished
before we had say goodbye for the day.

All in all, another great day
spent with two wonderful women!
Thanks for the giggles girls!
