This is my design wall after taking down my Easy Street. The rows were all sewn together and I have a plan for the borders but no action on that plan. Wow, nearly naked design wall!
Let's get up close to the one project currently on the wall. This is the antique 9 patch blocks with the some of the snowballs that I've made from the extra fabric. I was going to make it square but realized I had enough blocks for another row. The next one I'm going to use the solid fabrics for the snowballs which will calm it down a little. Hopefully the blocks will actually fit together because a good quarter inch seam with accurate cutting wasn't in this quilter's skill set.
I will be working on Christmas presents most of this week but I still hope to get more done on this quilt and the bigger quilt. Ha! Who am I kidding. I doubt I get anything done on either of these projects. But maybe....
Yesterday afternoon we went to Williamsburg because Pat's barbershop chorus was singing at a church. We went down with Amanda and Hardman. Amanda and I spent an hour strolling through the downtown area into the historic section. Really, I was going to look at the wreaths Amanda had seen on an early trip that celebrated the original Star Wars movie. What do you think?
And my personal favorite. . .
|Door wreath detailed the time period/release of the movies. I didn't read the written information. I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to the movies since the first 3. Hum, maybe it's time for a movie viewing weekend|
And just so you know what a "normal" Williamsburg decoration looks like -- here's a beautiful window decoration. Pat and I went to Williamsburg during Christmas one year. Since living within easy distance we've never thought of going down just to see the decorations. Must remember this for next year.
The chorus did a wonderful job with Christmas songs. Before we left the area we had a great dinner. Our dogs weren't happy to be home by themselves so much but they got outside and were fed right on time by our wonderful neighbor.
It's time to get going this morning. We're doing a little but of Christmas shopping and then I'm heading to the studio to do some embroidering.
I've been plugging away on all my goals which are mostly getting the Christmas presents done. I had a great time fabric shopping with my friends. I went wild buying fat quarters -- why not they were a dollar each. 4 yards were used as gifts to give the quilt guild board members who serve with me.
