Design Wall Monday 11 - 23 - 2015

I am so happy to be making progress on my Easy Street.  I'm not sharing a picture because it doesn't look different from the last post here.  I've got half of the blocks sewn into rows.  Over the next few weeks I'll continue to work on this project -- but not as the primary project.  It's time to buckle down and get some Christmas "stuff" done.  

I finished up the ornaments for Natalie and Sophie for LAST Christmas.  I made Ellie's before Christmas last year and she got hers on time.  Sophie and Natalie got theirs today.  I redesigned the scarf by the time I got to Natalie's  It was much easier to sew stripes instead of plaids! I'm happy to report I'm almost done with the first of the three ornaments for 2015.  And, I'll admit to having less stitching to do on each of them!

Natalie's 2014 Ornament
I'll be quilting several tops for customers over this week and next.  First I need to finish a small charity quilt I threw on in hopes of getting it done quickly.  Nope, need to finish it today and then get back to the bigger ones. 

Goals were pretty well completed this week. YEA!
