    WiP Dec 14 - 20, 2018

    My gosh, the holidays are approaching WAY too fast. I still have hopes to get the knitted throw done and the family tree needlework framed.

    On the quilting front, there's finally been forward progress. I have all the sub units on Block 19 of "It was the 80s" finished and all I need to do is cut the four pieces that are more or less internal sashing and put the entire thing together. WHEW. This one has been on the back burner for way too long.

    I got my donation block done and promptly forgot it on Quilt Guild night. I think I'll mail it to the past president with a note.

    At least work is starting to get back to normal. How are thing in your world?

    The Tessalla pattern has been on my to do list all year. I was finally able to acquire a Gelato jelly roll at not full retail (this jelly roll rarely goes on sale.) I am in love with these deeply saturated graduated colors. I should have the first test block made later today. Then I will cut the whole jelly roll and go into full scale production mode.

      It's coming way too fast, way too much life being thrown this way. Thank God my DD is hosting DH & all our combined brood on Dec 23rd. With mom is convalescent care, I am going every day, so I'm not getting much of anything done. Today I had a funeral-service to go to. I will be cooking the ham, patatoes & sweet patatoes. Easy breezy as they will propare the remainder.

      Yesterday there was a Jingle Mingle at our LQS. I did not need, but I wanted and got 2 half metres of fabric. Pretty good. DH got a few quilt books. Tomorrow we will go to the country LQS to pick large spools of Glide thread. She also has a sale. Her prices already beat other stores. It might be hard to resist.

      If I have time, I will make snap bags for GKs. If not, then later.

      Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

      Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

        Tessalla test block completed. I am satisfied that I understand the instructions and am ready to move to mass production.

            Yes the ribbon tied around the jellyroll says Maywood Studio. The fabric manufacturer is EE Schenck

              Oh Denise you are too funny. Mass production lol! You truly are a one woman quilt factory the way you crank out projects! I half expect you will finish this top before Christmas except for the quilting. You leave us all in the dust.
