more, because I like it so
Yes, I finally finished my second Tis the Season quilt this morning. I like it. After finishing it I started writing my "This Week" list. That's because it was on last week's "This Week" list. It doesn't do to mix your weeks up you know. Are you a list maker? I have been writing lists of late. I'm not sure whether I get more done or not, but it feels like I do. I very bravely put a more than three year old quilt on this week's list this morning. I know how old the quilt is because it was intended for a grandchild. I have dragged it out previously and that ended in tears, so I feel brave today. I unpicked some quilting-gone-wrong on it last week and am hoping that I will be able to finish it and send it to a young man. We'll see if the list works!

hee hee, it must be the week for re-surfacing nightmare projects. Today I finally pieced a quilt block that has had me stumped for six years! Good luck with that quilt!

Oooooo! I do like that one! I have another set of stitcheries done and bought some red and white fabrics while I was in Victoria...... 'cause you can never have too many red an white fabrics!

I like your red version of the TTS quilt, in fact I like both your versions, they are both really lovely.

Lists are good, I haven't made any for a while, perhaps that is why I'm not managing to get much done.
