I enjoyed the Virtual Cookie Exchange which made me gain a few pounds just reading recipes and seeing all those trays of sweets. It made me push to finish up the Kaffe quilt. I had a lot of fun making this as well as quilting it.
Of course it gave me a few left overs that I just could not let sit or get stashed away. I mean, really - this is such fun stuff!
Little 1.5" white squares with 1" x 1.5" sashing and 1" cornerstones made for a fun miniature. Cut offs just the right size for borders and enough for a scrappy binding.
Some of the larger pieces where pieced for the back. A cute little table topper that can be used either side or hung on a clip-hanger for mini wall quilt.
There was still a bit left to play with.
So I am working on another miniature with bitty log cabins. I think I will have that Kaffe out of my system by then - and all used up as well.
I don't do a lot of Christmas decorating - I leave that for the shop 'pretty'. Besides, my furkids would find too many things fun to play with. BUT, I need to do some house cleaning and will set up a few items on the mantel just so I am not called a Grinch. We've had some snow almost every day thru the week - it should have given me some 'spirit', but I think it just has given me (and the furkids) early cabin fever. I put the extra heavy double fleece throw on the guest bed as we dipped into single digits a few nights; and that is where those two have been hanging out.
A few new buttons went on the side bar and 2019 is already looking interesting. It might be time to make plans for the new year.
