Need to start the Christmas count down!!

 As I look at this square I now see I goofed!!!  I can't believe I didn't see it as I was sewing it together, so now I'm putting on a sad face.  Thought I was done with the squares - this was #12!!

The one directly below is #8 , I had to cut out the beige squares and re-do some of the brown.  Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, went pretty fast.

The last one which as the same colors as the one on the left are the smaller squares that were also part of #12 or December.

So once I fixed the one square, then I need to cut out a bunch of 6" squares out of the material that looks like it's appliquéd and will start the process of sewing it all together.  This one may actually get finished before Christmas!!  I'm excited.

But before that, I've got to get my material cut for the rag quilts and pillow cases for Christmas - 66 more days!!  Time waits for no one...... Since I have to ship most of the stuff it has to be done by the first of December, so while there is 66 days to Christmas, I have to back about 25 off that.  so what am I doing typing on my laptop???  I really should be sewing, cutting or stitching.....

Here is my starting point for the weekend.  I've put the sewing machine up for now and will start to stitch.  Hope to have major progress done by the end of the weekend.

I also want to start pulling my 2013 wish list of projects to get done.  I didn't get everything done this year, so some will go on next year's list and some will find their way back to the big UFO bin in the closet for another time.  I won't post my done and not done list until the end of December - hope springs eternally that more will be accomplished.

  1. Lovvely blocks Sandy and I can see how you can goof the block. I've done that many times. Just go breathe and frog it.
    Nice progress on your stitching too.
