The countdown has begun. Are we all ready? Every time I think I am done with my Christmas prep, I think of something else I forgot -- another gift to buy or make, cards to mail, etc. You know what I'm talking about.
I jumped out of bed this morning and got busy working on this block. It is a pattern from appleavenuequilts.com. I found some more HST's that I had tucked away and that made it go together very quickly. I should be able to finish it today and have it wrapped and under the tree by tomorrow.
I got the hexie quilt bound yesterday and it will be on its way to a friend's house by this afternoon.
I quilted the snowflake block that I had machine appliquéd. It had a pooch in the middle of the snowflake when I got it done. You know what I mean? a place in the middle that sticks up and it just won't lay down. So I punted it. I hate doing work on something and it doesn't work out, but I know the amount of work to fix it is way more than the time it would take to start over, esp during the holidays when I just don't have those spare minutes.
Hope your countdown days are stress free and fun. Take a look at Judy's blog to see some beautiful designs and that will get you in the mood to relax and maybe sing some carols.
