Late last night, my daughter came in to my sewing room.
"Hi Mom. What are you working on?"
"Well, I've started something new," I said sheepishly.
A slight grin, and eye roll. And she was gone.
I know, I know. I didn't (don't) need to start anything new until I finish the 5 or 6 things I already have started. But, I just couldn't help it.
See, aren't these blocks adorable. Check it out--the background fabric has little snowflakes on it.
You see, as the year goes on, I bookmark web pages and put then in a folder called "Christmas Projects". For some reason, late yesterday afternoon, I started browsing through this file. (Not a good idea when I'm wanting to complete projects already started.)
And, I came upon this website. Molly's Place I remember bookmarking the page when Molly first announced the block of the month and then I forgot all about it. She is currently designing block 8 so I was only 7 blocks behind. But, these are so cute and fast and fun that I sat down and completed 4 of them last night. (The buttons aren't sewn on yet.) Molly is doing all of her embroidery by hand but I am using the machine. That is what is making it go quickly for me.
I'm not sure what she has in mind for putting the blocks together but my mind is spinning and thinking ahead. What would you do?
Stop by Judy L's blog "Patchwork Times" to see what other quilty friends are working on. Who knows, you might get an idea or two of if you're like me a dozen.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
