Playing Catch-Up

With all the sewing I've done over the last two months for church activities and Christmas gifts I got slightly behind in both of my BOM clubs. So today I devoted some time to playing catch-up and am now just one block (set of 4) behind. Hopefully tomorrow will find that one complete. But here is a look at those completed today: Block #3 in the $5 club: Balkan Puzzle

Block #4 in the $5 club: Sunlight and Shadow I really like this block and am contemplating making a large quilt just repeating this block throughout...we will have to see.

Month 3 in the Kaleidoscope of Kolor: Sister's Choice Star (set of 4) and Month 4 in the Kaleidoscope of Kolor: Star of Wonder (set of 4)

A Little of This A Little of That

What a crazy week! I spent most of it at the sewing machine sewing up costumes for the nativity program that we put on at our church Christmas party Friday night. When not busy with this major project the boys and I were busy with their schooling and the poor girls felt totally neglected. But mommy is all their's (that would be all four of them) again and they are happy campers. I did manage in all the choas to find some time over the weekend to do some pleasure sewing and I enjoyed every minute of it. I started this project several weeks ago but had to put it to the back burner as other things cropped up. Well it is complete and I am very pleased with how it turned out. A project that I will certainly be doing again in the future. A Big THANK YOU to May Britt for sharing the pattern. And these pot holders went together in a snap and will be a great gift for the person it is going to.
