The birdies have been seen out in this cold Christmas weather off of our back porch.
The other signs that I know it is chilly outside is when the pups look at me and say,
|"You want me to go out there and do my business? Yeah right!".|
I have been sewing as much as I can. The Bonnie Hunter RRCB mystery has been my main focus...trying to catch up. Never should have skipped step 3...60 strip blocks. I think I am getting close to 30...Oy! I think I finally got a system down that works for me...one block at a time...make 5...square them up...make more. I tried chain piecing them, but the long strips kept getting tangled. Hoping to finish these blocks before the other part comes out...though I still have to do the last step. Need to find more greens for mine!
I've been thinking about the swap we just did, Morning Star. Mine is almost together, but realized that the stars are not "finished" on the outside. I think I am going to make more 1 1/2 background squares to attached to a "border" of the same fabric all around. The stars would only finish out the quilt ones and not create new ones. Hope that makes sense.
Hope everyone else is enjoying their holidays. k
