snow day = sew day

it couldn't last, meaning no snow on the ground, have about 4" here, which isn't much but it's more that it heralds the beginning of real winter that is disheartening.  but a month's reprieve is way better than none, and what could be nicer than a 60-degree christmas!  snowy days mean sewing and this was the result....the 5 blocks of FWS that were waiting...

haven't pulled the papers yet but they are done.  this group is on hiatus until jan 6th so next up will be the start of the 365 challenge.  and my UFO list for 2016 is finalized so guess i'm ready for it to begin.  so blessed to see the start of another year!

UFO not!

did get this little piece finished just this morning, so off the list it goes....going to try and eliminate just one more small flimsy from the list. with not much else scheduled and bad weather finally coming (meaning snow), should be able to manage one more finish.  otherwise working on FWS blocks and some usual tasks. only 5 days to the start of the 365 challenge and trying to avoid that tiny voice in my head that this is simply too big a project for somebody in a state of flux.  trouble is, really want to take it on but would feel more confident if things were a bit more stable and all the stash was organized and at hand.  nevertheless, going to persevere and see what happens....can always abandon for a later date....meanwhile, gotta corral my warm clothes and get ready for real winter....yeeeccchh!
