Since I cut some of these pieces out and then moved them I knew I had to keep organized. So, for the presents all of the colors pieces were clipped together with Wonder Clips. (Boy do I use these a lot.)
The background fabrics got little stickers on them indicating what letter they were on the pattern diagram. Some got sizes, some got the number of the pieces. There was no rhyme or reason to my stickers except they all had their correct letter on them. And, because I try hard to use things up the stickers were what was left after I used up addresses labels run through my printer. It's the Californian in me to reduce, reuse and recycle!
It's a no brainer for me to choose my next One Monthly Goal. I'm going to try to get the last three blocks done in October. True confession time now. The last three blocks will be machine appliquéd. Two of the blocks are all ready to sew down. The third one is traced ready to be ironed on once the background block is made. These three are going with me to retreat in hopes of being finished there. I'm guessing that will get done because I'm not planning on bringing a lot of other projects.
I was so surprised to find this plant in bloom within a few weeks of moving into our new house. The window gets afternoon sun. I've owned the plant for a long time (probably 20+ years.) It used to bloom but really hadn't in 10 years or so. Needless to say I was surprised and delighted it decided to bloom again. I'm guessing the Christmas cactus will be in beautiful bloom sometime in the next few months.
I'm linking up with Red Letter Quilts, Midweek Makers, Let's Bee Social, and T
hursday morning I'll link up with Needle and Thread Thursday. It's a lot of fun to look around to see what other quilters are working on.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
