beginning the end

of the 365, that is....finally on sunday finished ALL my little dark value blocks....and a couple of nasty ones too.  will definitely NOT miss the 7/8ths inch flying geese!!!   they are horrible to make for my short, chunky fingers.  but they are done and it's on to bigger blocks of light fabrics.  sorted all the dark scraps and tossed the too-tiny ones, rest in the scrap basket.  so december is really catch up and finish month...including the 4 corner blocks that haven't tackled yet.   here are the last of the littles....



once the deck was cleared, moved on to bonnie hunter's mystery clue #2....oohh those lovely kaffe magentas!  aren't they beautiful???   haven't done clue #1 yet but will get them done as leaders/enders while light blocks are made, now that the thread color has been changed on the old viking.


bonnie's quilt designs are all about scraps so these should fit in nicely.  in addition to these and the little blocks, pulled out some christmas decorations and lined up some christmas sewing that is on my to do list.   plus squeezed in a bit of a nap as well since woke up at 4 am.  it's another busy week with some holiday fun included.  hope your week is similarly scheduled.....

  3. Congrats on getting the little blocks finished! You have been tenacious with this project--7/8" flying geese? That even makes me shiver!! *LOL*
    Smart to make the 4-patch blocks leader/enders for the other parts of the quilt. Bonnie would be proud! : )
