A little champagne and a whole pile of 4" red squares that I won several years ago brought a new year of sewing to a great start.
A lot of trimming left some nice scraps for the birds.
The neat pile left me with a lot of decisions.
I've always loved the look of a simple HST quilt, but then again......
how about a great zig zag....or
a star (oops...a misplaced one, but you get the picture).
Then again, there is this option....
and Flying Geese too.
Maybe a bigger zig zag would be nice.
There is always the classic pinwheels. I have close to 400 of these HSTs so I hope to make a decision soon as I would like to complete it this month and participate in A Lovely Year of Finishes. Which is your favorite?
Another insane project that has been a few years in the works is my cross stitch nativity scene. Between the eye strain and the intense concentration required on this project, I am sure it will take me a few more years to complete.
This is what I hope it will eventually look like.
I welcome January with the new-ness that it brings. There is so much to look forward to and dream about.
To all of you in the path of this latest artic blast, stay safe. I vote that you just stay inside and sew instead of venturing out.
