A busy week


Finishing the Secret Santa Christmas Swap gift, mailing this and that as old fashioned snail mail to friends, working on my different projects, keeping up some early December traditions, exercising and more, and there goes a week as fast as a rocket.


After finishing the Secret Santa gift I finished a delayed gift, a cushion cover, finished all from fabric collection, now wrapped and sent.


This is DD2's Christmas calendar this year, filled with a packet for each day, from December 1st to December 24th, Christmas Eve, when we celebrate Christmas here.



DD1 said she wants her childhood calendar where she lives, but mom could not help herself, and made packets for the 4 Sundays of Advent, as she is home during the weekends.


The stash buster project is progressing and is now sandwiched.
My beloved grand-cat offered her help in the process !


My desk is cleared and the quilt is ready for machine quilting now. All is taken from stash - all the fabrics, the batting and the thread.
I will start the machine quilting tomorrow morning.

This looks like the very same block I'm using for my Jelly Roll. It looks great.

Great cushion - love the design you did. The Christmas calendar is so cute, and the weekends - well, you have to have a little something! =) Your quilt is really pretty. I like the simple two-color designs like this a lot. Great stash busting!
