Not much is getting done on the piecing and quilting side but I am making some progress on Christmas preparations. Here's what I hoped to get done last week. . .
Finish Christmas ornaments✔️
Wrap presents✔️ Most that have arrived and those I needed to pass on Sunday were done.
Finish adding coping strips ✔️ - 2 columns are sewn together - 1 to go
Make scarf to go with doll hat✔️I had to find the right clothes for my Kit doll to do a glamor shot to show off the scarf & hat I made as a Christmas present for one of my grands. In hindsight I would have made the scarf a bit wider and less long.
Write & Mail Christmas cards✔️
And now, goals for the last full week of 2020 . . .
T Shirt Quilt - add the coping strips to the last column, get vertical sashing strips on
Make blocks for FCQ Equilter
Try to finish hand quilting on very old Christmas quilt
Make more blocks for 2019 BOM quilt
Quilt and bind one of my quilts
Are you having delays receiving mail and packages from all the major delivery services? We are. As most people have this year, we ordered most presents online. Some presents were ordered early, others not so early. We've got a list and are checking it
twice multiple times to make sure everything we ordered comes in. So far way too many items haven't arrived.
But enough arrived to allow us a quick meet up with our son to pass along some of the presents for his family. The ten of us are tentatively planning an outdoor get together after Christmas to swap and open Christmas presents. Hopefully, later in the week but it will all depend on the weather. It would be pretty uncomfortable to sit outside at 40 degrees and rain.
|I finished these socks a few weeks ago but didn't get a picture of them until recently. These were in the group of presents passed off to Kevin. (I'm not admitting who is getting them...) But I really love the color. |
Linking up to my regular parties: Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Design Wall Monday, and To Do Tuesday. I'll really try to remember to link up on Tuesday -- I noticed I failed to last week. Sigh! Yea! I remembered to link up to To Do Tuesday!
Wishing all who celebrate a Happy Christmas Holiday.
Happy Quilting! Bonnie
