It was –34’c this morning when I took this picture, the cracks on the ice have really opened up in the cold.
I finally have all 100 block completed for my Just Takes Two Mystery Project!!! I decided to pitch the instructions for the hand pieced block and make one that I would enjoy….a Celtic knot block! I love doing Celtic appliqué, it was the perfect way to personalize this quilt. I was going to machine appliqué it but then changed my mind hand appliquéd the bias strips down and am very happy with the results. I’ll even share a close up of my stitches :) I found this very relaxing to do.
Our guild’s Christmas party is next week and I volunteered to take care of our silent auction. We have had some beautiful hand made items donated to the auction this year and I also wanted to add a few pre-cut fabrics into the mix. Here is a teaser for my guild members of some of the fabrics I purchase with the guilds money! These were all purchase on Black Friday sales so the guild will definitely make money on these items.
