up early this morning and bonding with the old viking sewing machine around 7 am....an early start for sure! the last border of the shenandoah log cabin was made and then sewn onto the top for a completed flimsy. next will be to tie, bind and count up the yards busted! the little scrap basket alphabet is just about done, a bit more of the binding to sew down and it too will be crossed off the to-do list. so, spent some time sewing up the squares from this christmasy jelly roll. this is the first row and not sure if it will stay this way or not, will have to wait until all the blocks are done to see how many i have and how they will get set. just wanted to try this out. do not intend for every row to have all red strips in the same vertical row, so final plan is in flux. *** it was a frigid day here with howling winds and nearly ineffective sunshine. stayed indoors all day without even venturing out for the paper. no cooking either as plenty of leftovers were on hand. *** all in all a quite nice day relaxing with some christmas music and sewing fun.
