I'm almost caught up...

on my Christmas Wish BOM, by Gail Pan. Working on block 7 and should have it done tonight. As you can see I haven't ironed or trimmed them yet. I haven't stitched in years, so I'm still having trouble keeping my stitches even, but the good news is my fingers aren't bleeding so much from so many pricks, lol. I didn't have the correct colors of floss, so I fudged it with what I had, but I think they look great for my first big project in so long! And I'm doing them all on a White-on-White fabric, so I've changed the white flowers on some of the blocks to navy blue. But it seems to work, so I'm happy. These blocks have been a great beginner project.

Once I'm caught up on these, I'm moving on to the Verandah Views BOM by Cheryl at Willowberry Designs. They are gorgeous and a lot harder and more detailed, so I'm sure they'll be a challenge. Plus, I purchased a couple of patterns at Cheryl's Esty store . She has darling designs and some cute, quirky patterns that are perfect for kids.

But now I have to get back to my sewing. Katie says we have projects in the sewing room that need to be completed NOW! Sheesh! She is such a tyrant some days!

So til next time,

Happy Quilting
