With all my 'need to get done' projects finished for the year, I can breath and take focus of what plans need to be made for the New Year. To give my fingers some rest on the Hexie work, I decided I needed to visit a few projects that are in slow progress. One being the Postage Stamp blocks. I made a few more of the blocks using 1.5" squares and there are now nine completed.
Then I made a couple more of the 2.5" sq blocks to round these out to 12 blocks now hanging. Neither of these projects have made much of a dent in the scrap barrels.
Here they are side by side so you can see the difference in the look. These are the most popular quilts in the shop and I think I have just one left. But, these are to be worked on slowly and I am in no rush to re-stock inventory as now is the time to relax a bit.
This is another project sitting around waiting it's turn to be worked on. This is the last display board of pre-cut bits so I will work them up today. These blocks will wait for some larger projects to be finished so I have the scraps of 30's fabrics to add into this mix. Another quilt not to be rushed.
Thank you all for the well wishes on my neck pain - I found that the ThermaCare Heat Wraps are doing a better job than the heating pad; plus I am more mobile. We are into a sudden warm stretch with LOTS of rain and I think all of NYS is on flood alert. Good time to stay inside and sew the day away.

Stay dry, give yourself some TLC, and the blocks look great side by side. More goodies ready, that is always a bonus.
I hope you and your family are safe and dry. But as you say think on the bright side... sew the day away...
Merry Christmas xox
Your blocks look wonderful I can see why they are popular!
Keep safe and enjoy your sewing.
Love those blocks. Have a very Merry Christmas .....you and Mom and Moe and Bella. Time to chill and enjoy
Great looking blocks. You’re inspiring me to get serious about using more scraps in 2019. I have at least three scrap quilts on tap.
Stay safe and dry and enjoy the sewing. I must get on with using up some scrap, they do make such pretty quilts.
I love your little postage stamps! And I'm always a big fan of spools as well!
I have to put heat on my back fairly often - I use Snappy Heat reusable packs and like them a lot. (They're also good as handwarmers in your coat pockets in the winter!)
