This is what is on my design wall today. All of the blocks are made: none of the blocks are sewn together. And this is where it will be left until after Christmas. I wanted to get at least the center together but between getting ready for our trip to MD, last minute Christmas shopping, and other family stuff, this is as far as I got.
I really like these colors and am looking forward to when I can warm myself under them.
After I got the blocks on the wall I drew the embroidery lines on my Snowbound blocks and then packed them with the floss and needles so I will have some handwork for our Christmas trip.
This afternoon I will be out in our front yard (1.5 acres) cutting down pine trees. They grow like weeds and are coming way too close to the house. So, while they are still young, and won’t fall into the house, I am getting rid of them.
Then it will be time to pack and get ready to hit the road for “snow” country, MD. We will be taking the puppies so it should be an eventful trip even before we begin our visit with DS#3 & DDIL. I am getting so excited.
But before we get started on anything else, be sure you stop by Patchwork Times to see what other quilters are working on.
