I thought I would pan off to the right of my porch - three days of this! I quess 2016 wants us to wish her a (not so) fond farewell. That's the 'farm tenent' house that my brother and SIL live in and the red barn is the wood shop. And you guys wondered why I hibernate - ha!
It was perfect weather though to finish off those last few things for the year. The Leap Year quilt had it's last circle done and all the sections got sewn together. 360 circles on the front and the last 6 are with the label. This one is going to take me thru the New Year as I plan to hand quilt this special quilt.
I found the lost backgrounds for my flower baskets! They were tucked inside my Kona black flat fold - go figure. But this project has been totally relocated into it's new tote - ALL THERE - double checked. Now to make up for lost time.
The last Westering Women block. I made it with units found in the tote. This was a project to use up some of those Marcus fabrics (with a mix). I have the sashing and border fabric pulled from the shelf and now with the blocks ready for a finish in 2017.
And the 2nd Winter Solstice (with Pat Sloan) block got made before the next one comes out in the New Year.
And for the last giggle of the year - how about a butt in a bucket? He insisted he was going to sleep in that little bucket, but just didn't fit - next best thing I guess.
