Time flies and the end of the year is approaching quickly!!!
I’m pretty happy with my accomplishments this week … I planned time each day (and night) for sewing and got through a fair amount.
- pieced the hourglass blocks and the top is half assembled.
- bound two quilts
- quilted one top
- finished the ripple afghan
- made half of the chandelier blocks
Now I have 3 weeks left to work before my company arrives for Christmas week and a couple days after they leave before the end of the year and I have a list for what I want to accomplish in that time too.
- Finish the hourglass and chandelier tops
- quilt 2 tops
- bind 3 quilts
- make at least 3 hats
- start a set of Rainbow HeartStrings blocks
- finish the last wool felt stocking
I also have a fair amount of prep work around the house getting ready for company and the holidays. Luckily, I’m not traveling at all this month.
You have accomplished so much I can see why you are pleased. I sewed until 10pm last night trying to finish the moose quilt. I don’t like sewing at night and did make a mistake so had to get the seam ripper out. I hate when that happens!! Hopefully I can finish it today and then take 2 quilts to the quilter. This is when I would really like to have a long arm so I can just get them completed. Now I will have to wait 2 to 3 months to get them back and ready for binding. I have no doubt you will get everything on your list done before your Christmas company arrives. Can’t wait to see your chandelier quilt!
A month at home is unusual for you. Enjoy your ‘nest’.
You will get it all done I’m sure. I am cleaning our camper out after being gone for five weeks. I will sit down soon and figure out what days I’ll be able to finish my 3 quilts on the long arm. The baking and candy will be made the last few days before Christmas. December is always busy.
