Catch Up with In The Boon Docks


My Sew Together Bag more about it this bag here


Extra long Strap


Quilt for a Foster Child one of a local family! Blocks from a free Craftsy class years ago, I learned a lot.  You see my first hexagons I ever made. Beautiful baby will always have a quilt.


Woppet Buckets - I love this pattern and just keep making more! Clever Woppet on Instagram - Anna Cunningham 


These first (2) I made for out bathroom to hold our toiletries!


This one was for the #woppetbucketswap


Swapped this one for Luke Hayes’ birthday!  I got some great ornaments in return!


The first one was for the #sugarplumswap!  I really recommend the pattern! Simple, versatile, and useful!





The (2) stockings where fun! I’d like to make a few more if I get the time!


Christmas Stockings


Quilted Notions Pouch - love it but it has a lot of hand sewing! I changed the pattern a bit by sewing the zipper in with my sewing machine!


Working on Halloween Couch Pillows for next year.


There is more and I will try to post it this week!  I got a lot done but never had the time to blog but that is going to change in 2019. One goal is how many post a month?  What do you think? At least once a week or two a month?  

I have had pneumonia since Thanksgiving and my little granddaughter Lilly since then too! Mommy came yesterday and I will be sad to see her go home!  But I have Christmas sewing to get done or I’ll be seeing Christmas Eve.  Love you all and thanks for reading. Lisa

Vintage Christmas by Lori Holt Week 7


The Fat Quarter Shop invited me to join their new Vintage Christmas Sew Along, which is based around the new Christmas book by  Lori Holt. I couldn't resist! I love all her patterns and every book Lori has written you can find then at the  Fat Quarter Shop (click and see her other books)! Don’t forget to order your Alphabitties when you order your book.

Lori Holt - Bee in my bonnet - see what she has going on!




Vintage Christmas  is a great book for beginners to experts alike who love to sew!  So many great blocks to sew year after year! The blocks can be used for quilts and gifts (Mug Rugs, Bags, Tablerunners, and Pillows to name a few)!

#VintageChristmasFridays




Week 7 Block - Toy Train



The fabric is Cozy Christmas by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs. It was released a couple of years ago but you can still find it at the Fat Quarter Shop. The thing I love about Christmas fabric is it never goes out of style.


Thank you for stopping by please take a look at the others blocks!

Week 7 – Friday, December 7


Have a very merry Christmas! Hugs Lisa

Sew Together Bag

I finally after years of wanting another Sew Together Bag, Pattern by @sewdemented on Instagram  started one on yesterday! You can find the .pdf pattern in Michelle’s IG profile or purchase a paper copy in a quilt store or online at Fat Quarter Shop

I bought the pattern 2 summers ago and found it intimidating so I decided to check YouTube and I found Margaret’s video which took the intimidation away! She is very personable and goes through set by step!  You have to still buy the pattern because she gives no dimensions!

You can find Margaret online Margaret of MMQ https://youtu.be/Lrvud8RWFIU



Here is my progress


I am doing it all in Alison Glass Fabric! Hope to finish it today! What are you sewing? Does a pattern ever intimidate you? Leave a comment!

Big hugs! Lisa
