Checked-in and Checked-off


Photobucket

Well, I made it through... 
through the first month of this year and
I actually completed my BOM rehab for January!

I have my first two Yuletide block of the month's completed!



It's kind of fun to be working on something "holiday" related...

I do like prolonging holidays!



This block was fun to make and so much easier than
the Coastal Lily block on my other quilt.



I did get to do a little embellishing on 
the wedding invitations for my son and soon to be DIL!


And I got them all in the mail today!

At first I but everything together like a left-hander.
Then I realized it... when I was half way through...
I un-assembled by work and put things together
as if I was a right handed person opening the 
invitation... 
you wouldn't think that there was a difference but there really is!
Instead of the flower part of the card exposed at the top...
the writing of the names were showing.



I have been working on my Bees Knees blocks too!
My group is making the main block and for everyone
that I get back in the mail I am making the alternate block
that will go into the quilt.
I now have 7 main blocks and 8 alternate.

And speaking of block of the month's...
I evidently signed up for one and perhaps,
 had forgotten about it. 
I am in the Fig Tree Mystery II BOM that
should be in my mailbox this week!
What a fun surprise!

(I seriously don't know how that happened...
maybe I was on a waiting list)?
Lucky me!

LOL ... I had to make a list of everything I signed up for this year. Too much for sure, but it will be fun getting those packages. I'll enjoy seeing you do the Fig Tree Yuletide BOM. Mine are in a project box from last year. Haven't started it yet at all.
