I had made a light 16 patch block earlier this week and the bow tie was a leader and ender today.
I made two more uphill houses earlier this week and cut out 2 downhill. I sewed the downhill ones today.... I think I am getting the hang of these! They need trimming but I'll do that once all the blocks are done.
The red dresden plate made progress and I got a bunch of the cross hatch done in the rainy day car line yesterday and finished it up this morning with a movie. I hope to add the X's in the blocks on the edge later tonight and then I can pull out the light blue one to work on.
This snowflake is not light blue.... but the quilt it goes with has lots of blues so I figured I'll work on this in January. I was pattern testing Hoarfrost for Joanne at Canuckquilter a while ago but never finished the 3 snowflakes. Her pattern has them paper pieced. It was my stopping point. I really do not like paper piecing.... so last week I was checking out snowflake coloring pages and found this one. I printed it out, cut out on the lines and then used that paper to trace this out onto some white fabric. We will see how it goes as it will be needle turned appliqué. I need to press it before attaching for hand work.
There was a knitted light blue variegated dish cloth made this week too but that didn't get a photo.
The boy was feeling off today - he is resting when he needs to- which is a nice change from his usual self. We cancelled Grandpa since we don't want him to get sick. I did make a trip out to the store to stock up on soups for the pantry after lunch. It seems we were out of chicken noodle ones. The house also got swept, mopped and vacuumed (hubby actually helped with the vacuum) this morning. Hopefully the boy is better and both can go to Grandma's tomorrow. If so - I plan to spend the whole day in the sewing room! So many options of things to work on! Blocks could be put together into tops, tops could get prepped for quilting, blocks could get made.... endless possibilities.
