Can you believe it’s almost December?! I need to get myself organized and get some progress made on my binding. Today, I found fabric for the two group HeartStrings quilts I have left to do and cut the bindings. I also sewed the binding on the Birdie and Triangles quilt and it’s ready to hand stitch down. I won’t get all 3 done before I leave on Friday but they’re in progress.
There was a Lightning game last night and tonight and I worked on my shell blanket making progress on that too. The Bolts won last night in overtime but lost tonight. They play again on Thursday night so I should make more progress on this one.
I also cast on Hats #21 and #22. I’m going to take them with me on my trip to Virginia. I probably won’t have much time to work on them while I’m there but it’s a 9+ hour drive each way and I’ll knit some in the car.
My back surgery to relieve the spinal nerve compression has been scheduled for December 19th so I have a list of things I want to get done before that in the sewing room – quilt and bind the Strippie and get it mailed off before Christmas; piece a Jelly Roll top for our December Precut Challenge; and I’ll also want to line up some easy piecing to do during my recovery from surgery and luckily I’ll have my knitting and crochet to work on too. Of course, I’ll need to finish up a few things to get ready for Christmas too. We’ll have a very quiet holiday.
I’ve got to get Finn to grooming tomorrow and I’ll get some binding done. Are YOU ready for the holidays? They’re coming up so fast!
