Christmas and all that

I’m in denial that Christmas is 3 weeks today but will have to face up to it this week. It will inevitably squeeze out sewing but I’m determined to get some things finished ahead of Christmas. There’s at least one more of these to do as stocking fillers.

There’s a wallhanging I want for the newly decorated but at the moment rather uncoordinated front room….

But my One Monthly Goal for Elm Street Quilts is to turn these into Christmas cushions.

The robin just might end up as a wallhanging instead. It would certainly be quicker to make. I was surprised at quite how long it took to make the last robin Christmas cushion, what with the piping and inset zip. But we will have to see.

The block is a paper pieced star left over from when  I pattern tested for Esther of I patch and quilt. There’s a couple of wonky corners that need to be resewn to square up the block. But it’s too nice to waste and although it’s on the small side with borders it can be expanded.

Now I just need to remember to enjoy the ride and not fret too much about forgetting anything.

  1. I’m in denial about Christmas as well. I hope you finish your lovely cushion/s in time…although I do love the wall hanging for your front room.
