What Happened?

The month of January flew by and my Elm Street OMG didn't get finished.  The quilt label will have to be done in the next few days before we see our longtime friends whose daughter had the baby girl just this week.

Other projects were finished.  A Hanukkah quilt top was pieced, quilted, and bound.  Now to make a label.  Ten quilt blocks were made for a 2019 Christmas quilt.  I am really trying to avoid the holiday rush this year.

Just today, I made a new bib for Jojo and two pillowcases for my little sis's best friend now living in Texas.  They won't get there for Chris' birthday but they will by Valentine's Day.

The bib was needed and I wanted to play with my new toy, a genuine KAM Snap Tool and snaps.  I have been wanting a tool to apply plastic snaps for years.  With enough Amazon Prime Points saved, I splurged for my birthday and ordered one.  It works amazingly well.  I wish I had it all the years I was making clothes for my babies and toddlers.  The KAM snaps go in easily and perfectly.  My old tools applied the pronged metal snaps and I had a very high rate of application failure with those style.  I have lots of those snaps left but I am afraid they will not be used unless I am desperate.  The new tool is too much fun!
