Santa Blocks


Brrrrrrr with windchill factored in it is a chilly 9 degrees outside today! As I am mentioned in an earlier post, I will be on a quilting get-a-way with some of my friends soon so I have been busy getting projects I want to take together. We will all be working on UFO's, so maybe I can get some of my projects finished or at least get them to the flimsy stage. One of the UFO's is a BOM (Block Of The Month) Christmas quilt. I have been working on getting the blocks ready for machine applique. My friend Phyllis gave me grief today about these blocks. She said I was jumping ahead. Sorry! I have fabrics that I think I might want to use in the quilt pulled and stacked up. I am just tired of having the fabrics in my way. I want to pull the fabrics for the blocks, fuse the shapes down, and get them ready for machine applique. I want to get those stacks of fabrics out of my way. I am pulling the fabrics from my stash so that makes me feel good. Yes, I have bought some fabrics especially for this quilt, but the majority of fabrics has come out of the stash. Yeah! Phyllis is just going to have to get over it I guess. *G* I plan on getting a few more blocks ready before we leave!

I always pack twice as many projects for a retreat than I could ever even unpack let alone work on! Love the santas....

Never been to a retreat but I must tell you that I was so way off in a comment on a previous post of yours when I said that I have no UFOs (un-fininshed object) . I emptied some more boxes that have been in the basement for..gulp...four years and low and behold...UFOs! They totally had slipped my mind after all this time. Now I want to get at them but must finish the wedding quilt first. Maybe I need to find a retreat to go to ;)

Love the Santa's!!!
