Design floor Monday....

Time to play with the RSC Sampler blocks! I laid them out in a 9x11 setting and I think I just need one more block - a light blue twinkle star. Now comes the decision - sashings in grey, cream or white? I am thinking a light creamy white but we'll see what happens once I start cutting.

I also had to quickly do the Christmas snakes for the countdown... since I completely forgot to do it last night! The kids will get the first thing - a light up ornament (penguin and snowman) after school. This is the planning stage before I put everything in and tie each day off with a piece of yarn. The kids enjoy it and it saves me the 'how many days' question over and over again. They just go count the snake!


Thanks to Cyber Monday - the kids are done for Christmas and things will ship where they need to go. Now I just need to order the Christmas cards and get those out and then I can relax. Mom - I called on Emily's pictures and they had not reordered it like they should have. I ordered it today so I'll just bring the CD's up with me and print them out up there for you and all the siblings.

  2. I'd never heard of a Christmas snake. I'd like to make some kind of cute, handmade advent calendar of some kind for my grands. Maybe a Christmas snake? ;-)

  8. Great layout on your sampler quilt! I like it without sashing but than I am not a sashing kind of quilter. Never heard of a Christmas snake, neat idea!
