Turkey Tracks

 
I put the finishing stitches into this small mat last evening.  It's 22 x 31 and worked up quickly.
I started it two weeks ago, as a take-along hand quilting project to pass the time at some events I knew I'd be sitting through. 
Done, and  ready for November ...

Austen Family Album

 
Week 29: Lend & Borrow
 
This series is working along nicely toward completion.  However, it's mind-blowing to realize that
 "just seven more blocks to sew" means that there are
 just SEVEN MORE WEEKS in this year!!

Progress

 
 
I got a dozen blocks sewn today! 
 
Log cabins are my favorite blocks, and once I get started I just keep going.  They work up especially quickly because I already have the 1 1/2" strips cut and sorted by color.  I just have to pull out a pile of greens and a pile of reds and zip 'em together -- just have to make sure that two the same don't end up together.

A new project begins

 
So, I was tidying up after finishing the rag rug --
the bag of Christmas-colored strips was out.
 
It just happened :)
