I finally FINISHED piecing my B-a-Ds!!!!!! That turned out to be a real monkey on my back these past couple of months. I guess I seriously misjudged both my attention span and my estimate of available time. I felt like I wasn't ever getting anything completed -- just creating more and more and more blocks/UFOs. Whew, a year is a long time, and 365 is a LOT of blocks.
So I decided to surge ahead and put a top together using the Shay block set -- all the "don't match anything else" blocks. Once I had my momentum going, I sprinted onward with layering and quilting, so it's ready for binding this week. A nice vintage-looking utility quilt -- happy dancing here!!!!! And there are more than two dozen other block sets waiting to be assembled ...
Life has been extra-busy the past couple of weeks, with a flurry of holiday parties and get-togethers. This is such a nice neighborhood and community -- life is good. We're especially looking forward to an upcoming visit with Dave, Jessica, Crazy Frankie and new puppy Cholula. The Christmas season is such a social, joyful time of year!
