Shall I say greetings AGAIN? I am trying so hard to get over the “hump” of life and back into my quilting. I think that I am getting there, but it is slow. I have finished Santa and only 2 more blocks to go and this project will be ready for a setting. I thought that everyone would like to see what the other blocks look like since it has been sooooo long when I started this project. The neat thing about Kathy Schmitz for this project is that she provides the little things like the leaves and berries on Santa’s hat that you press on and then button hole stitch around each one. I will need to do the satin stitches for Santa’s eyes, but that will come later when I do the button hole stitches on the leaves and cherries.
Here are the last two blocks that I need to do, they are for October and November.
I am not sure how the setting will end up. This was my first (and probably my last) BOM with fabrics that I had purchased. Each block has fabric included to frame them as they can be done separately instead of a quilt. I am opting for a quilt!
Next week Gretchen and I are going to start on the 3030 quilt project. Today is the first day of peace and quiet and now I have so many projects that are in different stages, I have no idea what to do next. I really need to take some sit down time and make some sewing decisions. I looked at my “list to do and quilts I want to make” fro 22 December 2019. Somehow I was overwhelmed – wonder why. I will take stock of my projects and get busy and try to put a dent in them in the next week. They are:
1. OMIGOSH Blocks – This will not be a fast quilt to make so it will be a “what am I in the mood for today” type of sewing.
2. Easy Breezy – This one is exactly what the names indicates EASY and fast! I just need to settle into it.
3. 2 blocks for Mary Brown – Night work (Applique)
4. 2 blocks for Sweet Stitches – Night work (Embroidery)
5. Blue and White Reproduction Quilt – (Started a year ago)
OK, I am already worn out just looking at the above. Think for this week it is going to be Easy Breezy. I believe the best thing is to try to finish something! It has been too long since I made a quilt.
Have a great week, and shout out to East Texas and Western Louisiana. We were hoping to get some rain from the storm or at least a cool down from the 100’s. Time will tell.
