At the same time, I signed up for 31 days of blogging in December, although it was clear at mid-month that 31 blog posts was not really gonna happen. But 13 posts did happen, and that is a huge change.
December goal report1.
Almost got to the recipient in time for Christmas. But what a delight to see and hear how much she loved it. Like giving birth...
I put on the binding. I removed the partial bits of my previous quilting, and I started tying the quilt. Just didn't get it done in time. So it got put aside in the pre-Christmas rush.
3. Finish puppy pillow sham Nope
This will eventually be a gift. Just not for Christmas 2017.
4. Hand-stitch binding on Circles BoM quilt Again, so close...
I stitched while my son was visiting one December weekend (much good football watching). But alas, still have about 12" left.
Updated the display at the shop, with Four completed blocks. Looking good!
6. Finish 2 chirimen samples Nope
7. Finish "C is for Chicken" book Nope
8. Memorial stockings for the siblings Nope
Did not touch any of this in December.
Well, I actually picked up a totally different unfinished project. Hand work. Traveled nicely when I went to see family and friends at many holiday gatherings.
There are eight cats to blanket stitch outline on this twin-sized quilt top--a project started in 2014 (and stalled significantly since then). I suppose I could look back at my December goals to analyze why I went so astray of what I said I wanted to work on. But, ya know, it was a holiday month, so I think I'm gonna just let it be.
To recap: some cute cats got their blanket stitch on, my largest ever quilt was completed and sent to its forever home, and I still love to sew, regardless of my perceived productivity in any given month.
Happy stitching to me! And happy 2018 to us all!
