A pincushion for my friend, Deb.
This was a freebie from Whimsicals.
And now, those cross-stitch ornaments.
One for each of my children and my granddaughter.
I originally blogged about my goal to stitch one of these ornaments each month back in December of 2011. Mary of Quilt Hollow and Darlene of Quilting Daze thought it would be fun to do the same. When I mentioned my new blockhead goals, Mary teased me about our ornament goals way back when.
Ah, the gauntlet had been thrown.
So I just had to finish up the one I started in Feb. 2012 and then made the other three this last month. It was fun mounting and finishing them with a little help from a friend.
My DD and I started two simple stockings for my SIL and granddaughter today.
Yup, that is me...the procrastinator.
And I did get my blockhead blocks made this month! Finished another row of my red and white quilt, but I have only pulled the fabrics for the next LeJardin block. I will not get it stitched, but hope to at least get it all prepped soon.
Have you seen this:
As you know, I am a big Kim Diehl fan. I love the Idaho Lily in the upper left. I have been looking for a red and green quilt pattern...this could be it, at least a small one to start with.
I wonder if it will be run like the Jo Morton club.
Baking, stocking making and yes, Christmas shopping starts tomorrow,
so I will see everyone in the New Year.
