stashbusting report



I can't believe another week has flown by. I'm happy to report that nothing was purchased this week except a few Christmas gifts. I've been deleting the sales ads as they fly into my inbox. I finished all of my tree blocks and I'm ready to sew the rows together. I feel good that I stayed with the project even when it frustrated me. There were times that I was very frustrated.....I frogged quite a few seams in the beginning. Usually that's when they hit the ufo pile and I move on to a new project. Guess that might be why I have so many of those...........

This week my plan is to embroider some kitchen towels for gifts and finish up several tablerunners that I started last year. I guess I should pull out the decorations, deck the halls and all that stuff. :)

The cats and I have finally come to an understanding of where they can sleep when I'm sewing.

your tree quilt looks great!
Love your fabric choices
I have my blocks made too, just need to start sewing them together.
yes I found them a bit challenging to make too , once you made a few it was a lot easier!

Great looking trees! Great use of that fabric. Very, very cute, indeed.

Love the cats! :-)

Oh, yes, I LOVE the trees! I'm glad you stuck to it because it's really worth it! Your cats crack me up. Will they stay there or will they wander into forbidden territory? I know my pesky young one always has to be RIGHT WHERE I'M WORKING whenever she feels she's not getting enough attention!

Great tree blocks . . . it's going to be a very cheerful quilt *s*

Vicky said...

Those wonky trees are awesome! Now I'm really intimidated by that pattern. If you were frogging, I'll be totally confused by it! LOL

Cute kitties! I wish I could Daisy up on a shelf!

I really do like this quilt. I have gathered the fabrics together to tackle it in 2008. I hope mine looks as good as yours does.
