new month!

i caved, and sent for this gorgeous christmassy tree pattern that i've been drooling over, and then had to get it's companion piece, too.   i'm sew lucky!

and speaking of lucky, this 6 inch charm pack is a prize that i won in july, and now that i've got it in hand, i can't remember who gave the prize ... i didn't write it down when it came!  [senior moment]

the background pieces for 'a walk in the woods have gone from rows to done already.  waiting for me to cut out the leaves.

i have lots, well, 2/3's of my hexies basted and have decided i erred on the number of flowers needed and cut some more.  i'm making lap size, about 52" square; my flowers are 7 1/2" and i figured to put 5 down and 5 across, but i'll have to make 7 across to get a reasonable square.  the border with it's vines and smaller flowers will make it about 52"!

so, i had a 20% coupon for the fat quarter shop and got 1 and a 1/2 yds each of all the kona greys:  charcoal, iron, medium grey, steel and ash!   iron and steel are pretty close!


  1. OOO! those grey fabrics are very pretty. I follow the designer of the Christmas patterns. They are gorgeous and will be fun to do.
    Congrats on your win.
