A Quiet Saturday

The weather out today was kind of gloomy, and late in the day we had a few light showers. Perfect weather for sewing! Which, coincidentally, fits in nicely with my panic about how little time is left before Christmas.

I sat and sewed much of the day, thinking about what quilting things need to get done. I've managed to convince myself that one project doesn't need to be done this year, so that's some progress! Then I've been working on quilting the Peppermint Twist quilt, and that's nearly done so there's another gift that I can soon cross off my list.

Between quilting the last couple days, I've been working on the Christmas List applique and I finished the Watch for Santa block--


and I just have the letters left on the Enjoy the Season block--


Tomorrow, Sunday, looks like it will be filled with more sewing, with the occasional break for cooking and possibly a bit of housecleaning--just a little bit, I think.

A friend sent me some funny stuff today--I'll leave you with this one:

Kim--that is a precious sign! LOL As far the Christmas quilt--love the blocks--can't wait to see the whole quilt. Christmas is right around the corner. I try not to punish myself by trying to make too many gifts. Too much pressure. Good Luck!!
