What's on the Cutting Table

While it was doing this this past weekend, I locked myself in my sewing room and worked on some Christmas presents that have been waiting.

I made three of these table toppers from an Atkinson Designs pattern. I just love this pattern. You can make these toppers in three different sizes and these are the smallest size. I used fabric all from my stash, although I'm pretty sure I bought the neutrals from Nicole's stash. You'll notice the front one is different than the others because I messed up in the placement of the greens on the outside but it still looks good.

This is the medium size, again all from my stash.

And then there's this-animal body parts. The making of this has not been pretty. Not easy, questionable directions, and not for the faint of heart. It's survival is questionable at this point in time!


  1. I bought Terry's pattern too! Love it and can't wait to make it. I love your fabric choices.

  2. Hi stranger,
    I have been thinking of you while I carry my BIG boobies around wishing I could get rid of half of them. Raising them up wouldn't hurt!!
    I would look thinner!!
    Hugs, Fern

  3. busy... love the monkey fabric. I hope you will post pic's of the completed projects.

  4. I love the fabrics you used for the table toppers very pretty!

  5. Love the Return to Sender quilt on your blog header. See what I mean about the high contrast blocks looking good? You got it exactly right.
    And your table toppers? OMG, I want those neutrals back! lol

  6. Beautiful table toppers Chris & the monkey fabric is adorable!

  7. Dig your new header! Love the table toppers and dying to know if there is survival...


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
