All Caught Up

Whew......can you believe it hit 70 here today?   I don't mind since it gave me the opportunity to open a few windows and air the house out but I could do without sweating while I try to get the house in order for Thursday!

I caught up yesterday and today on a few of my projects so I feel good.

First was my "Have Yourself A Quilty Little Christmas" project with Lori Holt and a bunch of people on Instagram.

The 4 blocks with the gingerbread man and the 3 blocks with the candle are all connected.
Just waiting for instructions on the others and possibly?  more blocks?

Next I caught up with my "Little Letters" which is a free block with Temecula Quilt Co.
I'm using solids with a black on white pin dot for the background.  Only 3 more letters to go then I can figure out what I want to do with them.  

The letters are only 4-1/2 inches square so you know I may have done a little swearing while I made the little HST's!  Those little guys are only 1-1/2 inch sq.
Below is a picture of my little trimming templates.  I would be LOST without them and also having my pins......You really need to pin those little ones so they don't get all wonky!
(I LOVE my red dotted pin holder)

And last, it's not really a catch up, it's a finish.   My Star Plus QAL quilt is back from my quilter Sarah.   That girl is awesome!  1 week turnaround time and she trims the quilts down for you!!!

I have binding all made, I just need to get it attached.

Hope you are having a wonderful Monday.
