007 - Full Throttle!

With Christmas only a month away...and because most of my gifts need to be mailed to friends and family in the Lower 48...I needed to get busy on the gifts I plan to make!  YIKES!  Here are a few clues on the 007 projects that I worked on the past three days.
I started this project a week ago and am half finished.  This is a photo I took last weekend ... cannot share a recent one ... that would give it away!
As usual, Flicka was serving as the "Quality Control Officer" and had to use and inspect each project. Hee-hee!  She would make surprise visits without warning!  Her involvement makes machine quilting difficult! ;-)  I worked all day Friday on this project!
Flicka loves spending time in the sewing room with me.  Here she is playing in a plastic bag!  What a wingnut!

Friday night, QBee Lila hosted the monthly "Runners Club" night at the Cordova Quilters' Hideout!  She is preparing to machine quilt the shop sample.
QBee Sam and I both chose Holiday themed charm packs, but different fabric lines!  It will be great to see them when they are finished!
I made good progress on mine ... but will wait until my 007 projects are done before I go back to it.  We don't know in advance what the pattern will be each month ... Lila announces it the day of!  It is fun for all the obvious reasons ... but I like the idea of using patterns and techniques that I might not have chosen to do on my own!  This is our third month ... and I have really enjoyed it!
Another hint from one of the projects I finished on Saturday.  Can you guess what it is?
The birds outside the window love to torture Flicka!  She dreams of being a small game hunter!  ;-)
Here is a hint from today's 007 project ... I still love this fabric and am gradually using up the pieces I have left.
Flicka has a sixth sense when it comes to machine quilting.  She shows up and immediately makes herself comfortable!  Even with all of her assistance ... I was able to finish four 007 projects this weekend and 2 others are half done!  That kind of progress feels sew good!
Do what you love.  Do dillydally!

Top secret work is exhausting ... who knew?  Have a great dillydally week!


  1. You have got lots of projects in the works. Finding the time to do them all is always the challenge for me, but somehow I manage to get them done. Looking forward to seeing your big reveal after the holidays.

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday weekend!

  2. Jealous! I still haven't had the time to live in my sewing room like I dream of. Spent yesterday planting in the garden. Yep, no snow! :)

  3. I am trying to do some Christmas sewing too. I finished one set of stack and whack Christmas place mats - I'll be posting a picture. Miss Carol is machine quilting two quilts for me . . . then I'll be sewing binding. I can't wait to show Zoe what Flick is up to now. She loves looking at your blog.
