One more little bit of Christmas inspiration came over me this week, and I actually finished my last 2009 Seasons of the Heart Block-of-the-Month block, the December Gift:
I'm pretty sure this is a first for me, to finish a block-of-the-month program, relatively on time. Many thanks to Sandi, from A Legacy of Stitches, for so generously sharing her designs for 2009. Can't wait to see them in a finished quilt! Sandi has already begun two new Block-of-the-Month programs for 2010, which you can access by becoming a member of her Yahoo group. I doubt I'll keep up as well this year, but I'm definitely saving the patterns, even if just for "someday."
Now, to decide on a layout for my "Seasons" quilt...
When I wrote this post earlier today, I completely forgot that it's Friday, and I should have linked up to Amylouwho's Sew & Tell Friday. (Where did the week go?) While I'm at it, I might as well share another little project I finished today.
I've been getting a lot of use out of my heating pad lately, with all my aches and pains, but the old cover is getting really worn and scratchy and uncomfortable to use, so I had on my to-do list to make a new flannel cover. A nice, quick project which at least got me into the sewing room for a bit today:
And to make it a little more fun (and use up some stash), I added a little ribbon trim and a buttony-looking snap that I found among the bins...
That's all for me this week. Not much, but at least I'm getting back in the swing. Slowly but surely... ;o)
