PRESENTS!

Thursday was all about PRESENTS! In the mail, I received my heart in the form of a necklace from my soul sister, Em - thanks, love!


I also received another of my Let's Bee Together blocks.


I started working on a present for one of karate instructors, whose birthday party is this Sunday evening. It is a quick and easy Ticker Tape or Mosaic Tile quilt. I just hope it is quick enough to complete by Sunday at 5 PM. The R is her initial, and I'll be making 9 bands of color to correspond to the nine colors of the belts we earn in karate.



I also finished making and sewing together my modified Flurry blocks for my Christmas quilt. Now for borders...I think I'm going to do a braid on either side, partially to make it wider but also to use up more of these hideous Christmas fabrics.


And finally, this has nothing to do with a present, but I finished my second Pindrop block.


Today, I worked only half a day, then met my kids at the city pool and swam 20 invigorating blocks. Now I'm sitting on my porch, enjoying a refreshing breeze and the gorgeous views while I shuck corn and snap beans for dinner. What a great start to the weekend!

Que pases un buen fin de semana!

I love the Christmas gift quilt! It has a great scrappy Christmas feel about it. I guess I must have a warped sense of what is good.....no, wait....I KNOW I have a warped sense of what it good. hahaha!

Lovely Mail Erin.

I see you've been working on many projects again this week. They all look fantastic.

I'm ignoring my Flurry Quilt again this week ...housework and having a three second attention span are more the order of the day!
