Last week I headed off in one direction and ended up going in another. It turned out to be a good thing. A quilt that I was hand quilting, about this time last year, was set aside as the Christmas season approached and I never got back to it. Well, I'm back at it and determined to finish it before the week is up. Just one more block to quilt, then the binding.
I can feel it already. The hustle and bustle of the Christmas season has begun. It would be nice to get caught up on my A Tisket A Tasket baskets before the year ends. Then three of the four BOM's will be ready for piecing early in the New Year. Though I failed to keep up with the Red Delicious BOM, I will still continue on with this beautiful quilt.
The New Year will surely bring more wonderful free BOM's. I hope to be strong enough to save them for another day. With that said, I do plan on making Sweet Nostalgia. But, this wouldn't fall into the "being strong in 2010" category, as it came out in 2009. Wouldn't you agree?
Some bloggers are suggesting that 2010 be the year of finishes. I like that idea and am going to try my best to do just that. Still, I plan to start new projects. How can you not? After all, it is the pile of projects, which wait patiently for me, on the corner of my work table, that keep me going.
We crossed the border on Friday, to check out the Black Friday sales and I managed to get the rest of my DMC floss, at even less then I paid at the previous sale. Only .26 cents a piece! Now I have the whole DMC collection. Another great purchase was wool batting at 50% off and I can not wait to give that a try.
Until next week.....happy quilting!
