Merry Christmas and afterwards

Merry Christmas (even if a little late) everybody!

It has been a good Christmas.  I exchanged presents with my friend Janine while she was here and she gave me a wall hanging which has a Santa with the moon in the background.  She said it reminded her of me.  She doesn't quilt but she does know I like that type of thing.  I'll take a picture of it in a day or two.  She also gave me a small dream catcher.    I gave her my NOEL Cross Stitch in a frame.  It's about time that she has something cross stitched from me.  Of course while she was here she spotted fabric that she would like to be made into something for her.  I rolled my eyes but didn't admit that I had bought that fabric with her in mind.  She also wanted me to do a wall hanging for her niece out of soccer t-shirts.  We argued a bit but finally settled on a layout.

Then I noticed that we have 4 blocks that were cut out but weren't soccer.  They were running.t-shirts so I put them together to quickly make something she could have now.  It's only 4 blocks but at least it is still her t-shirts.

Janine will be seeing her niece in early January so she said if I could get the other wall hanging done before that she could take it with her.  We'll see.

That means my storm at sea will be delayed a bit.  I am planning on it.  Today I cut up my pattern that I had colored in.  They are all taped into my book now so I know how many "units" I will have to make.  I still need to get the fabric but at least I feel it is a little more organized.  I also labeled and sorted out my new templates for it.

I hope everybody had a great holiday.
