I had November's block appliqued a couple of weeks ago, but had no time to do any of the sewing, machine or hand.
Once I had picked out the fabrics for the candy canes in December's block (oh, what a tough decision!), it came together quickly.
And after my very last marathon marking session yesterday afternoon, I did all the hand embroidery on both blocks.
Here are all twelve blocks together. No sashing or borders yet, though. I'd like to do the sashing and outer border in a vibrant red print (perhaps that Rouenneries Turkey Red Josephine?) and the inner border in a narrow red and white stripe. What do you think?
So, not a complete quilt finish (we can't all be as productive as Barb), but a finish nonetheless.
This morning I entered all the marks in the district computer program and this afternoon I am going to go window shopping and to a movie with my friend, Patt.
Tomorrow, of course, is back to work. boo hoo.
