Out of the Dark


I'm in full Christmas sewing, quilting & stitching mode :-) My mind is racing with ideas for gifts and such. So much so that I've started making a list (and checking it twice - sorry couldn't resist) LOL


It was time to pull this project 'out of the dark' and finish it as quickly as possible. This is block #7 of the 2010/2011 Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery quilt - five to go.


It'll be wonderful to have the quilt finished but I need to finish it because I need the scraps for some gift ideas and plans. The Fat Quarter Shop is incredibly generous with BOM fabrics so I know I will lots leftover. :-)


There is a method to my madness.


No, no, no I can't show you any of the finished projects because that would ruin the surprises.





I appreciate that you've popped in to visit with me - I hope you'll come again soon.





Christmas is less than 90 days away




(gentle reminder - teehee)

In Friendship!

Christmas cheer has popped up in Blogland for sure! I enjoy seeing everybody's ideas. Mine is a table runner and a quilt for presents, but not with the Christmas theme though.
Your mitten is very well done!

Love the mitten, Darlene.
I'm so used to nontraditional Christmas colors now that if I see the red and green of my youth, it almost looks wrong. I enjoy all the green and red variants, plus anything else that designers toss in. Great fun seeing the options each year.
