Naturally I felt the need to blog about something I'm embarrassed of.
This one with the tree was drawn by my daughter Bethany. I think these are from 2005.
All month I felt like I wasn't doing anything creative and feeling bad about it. Then I realized that I'd been baking every night after work. So I've decided making Christmas cookies was creative. I sent trays to Rich's work and sent them to my own as well this year. Then I sent some to my brother Luke & my step-father Jim & Ethan's teacher, too. Not to mention the hundreds that were eaten by the kids. And there were the 2 batches of fudge and 1 batch of butter toffee. YUM.
This is the carnage left behind. I'm not cleaning it up until I've got the setting done. I think that is going to be just as scrappy as the blocks themselves.
Last but certainly not least, my snowflake. We made these at my last TAS meeting. During my Harry Potter marathon this weekend, I finished the applique and beaded it. It took 2 1/2 Harry Potter movies to finish the beading that surrounds the snowflake and borders the binding. The last applique Civil War block took another 1 1/4 movies. I'm currently watching Half Blood Prince. Then I'll have to rent the last 2 to complete the greatness of my weekend. I guess I'll work on those State blocks while Harry saves the world. Holy crap, they're about to kill Dumbledore. This always makes me cry.
Happy Holidays everyone!
