NEARLY TIME XXX

This time tomorrow I will be on the way and (hopefully) able to concentrate on the most wonderful time xx OH! YES! It has been a long wait....but OH! I am sure it will be worth it. When we saw him in Les Mis. he was FANTASTIC... and all the reviews have been for a fantastic show.... may NOT remember to think about you all ... but will try xx

I have been sewing today... making up for working for the last week and NOT sewing at all xx You will notice there is some GREEN in there x

I made the Block-Of-The-Month (see the button on the side bar) for January, it was published on the 25th. I DON'T love it, I DO (sort of) like it , I am hoping it will grow on me. The other blocks I LOVED straight away... we will see.


I also made the little Christmas quilt... you may remember I bought the kit from Joan last week at the Congleton quilt group... and she challenged me to have it done for next meeting.


It is simply quilted with a zig-zag stitch.


I was going to use the GREEN fabric for the back, but I decided to use it for the binding


and used a cream fleece instead.


Keep smiling ...I may just be doing just that

No need to say enjoy yourself!! A very quick and lovely finish for the Christmas kit. I agree with you about the latest block. I saw it on his blog and thought it looked awkward.

Love the Christmas quilt and your block! I think this month's block is definitely a little different than the previous blocks. I just enjoyed making it since it was so fast! Maybe it's more masculine?! I'm finally catching up on my projects. I'm sure you'll have a great time tonight.

That first block is really cool Diane. Maybe you would like a different background. I like it. I like all your blocks. What's next?
