I'm glad the holiday season is over and life is back to normal again. All the decorations are put away for next december The tree is stripped and put outside where he immediately got re-decorated by mother nature this time in snowy white.
I had had good intentions (for years) to make my own Christmas cards. Wel..the balance for this year...I made one! Remind me to get an early start next time!
Talking about good intentions.. I want to finish of this quilt, deadline: December, 31, 2009. Yes, I know (deep down) deadlines don't work for me but at least I like to think they do!
It's a star sampler quilt. The top is almost finised. I've done the piecing by hand in a time where I didn't need glasses yet. And I can tell you..that's a long while ago!
Lately I'm more attracted to machine piecing. It sure works a lot faster! look at the back of this compass...all those stitches!
Only a few triangles have to be sewn on to the border and then the border sewn on to the quilt. I'm thinking of using cotton for the batting.
But first things first..see if I can find my glasses and start stitching.
