Pieceful Monday

Ahh . . . home! I am happily slurping coffee and reading through emails and quilting blogs and enjoying a quiet Monday morning at home. We have been on the road again over the weekend, with a short trip to Wisconsin (a working weekend).

I’m amazed at my quilting friends and how much they accomplish while I’m doing other things! It’s so much fun to come home and catch up on their blogs.

As for me, I did get most of the blocks for my Mt. Hood quilt finished. The next step will be to play with layout, then stitch them together. The border for the quilt has smaller blocks, which I haven’t started on yet. Perhaps today. No pictures of my progress, I’m sorry to say. I haven’t been home long enough!

One other little project I did get done with this little Christmas ornament. This is from Kim Diehl’s Simple Christmas Tidings book. I was given this book just a bit ago, and I was just itching to make something from it. This little project fit the bill with the time I had!

Kim has a really simple method to putting this little star together. While she uses organza ribbon for the loop, I used a cute little measuring tape ribbon I had. I thought it added a fun touch.

This week will be another busy one, but thankfully busy from home. I will be able to get some stitching done, so look for updates on my progress later this week.

Happy Monday!
