I went to vacuum up the threads mentioned in the previous post. I don't know if it was the threads, or just coincidence, but my vacuum died. Completely. Ordered a new one, and it arrived in THREE big boxes, much to my kids' delight!
The vaccine is rolling, out, but OH SO SLOWLY. And I'm about dead last on our priority list (as it probably should be - no complaints!) so I just need to keep on going. I've felt the need for some slow stitching recently, which has done good things for the progress on a lot of old cross stitch UFO's. I finished the Band Sampler that I did as a round robin a while ago. It's beautiful, but with Mary Ellen gone I'll have to spend a LOT more than I used to to get it framed! I've also completed "A Little Quakeresque" sampler - such a lovely project! And my "12 Days of Christmas" piece is done as well, although I did have to order more floss. I think it might end up as a pillow cover? I can't think of a place to hang in during the holidays. My piecing list is actually pretty under control for a change. I decided to join in on a quilt along for "All the Good" and I absolutely LOVE how it's turned out. It was part of a
The quilting continues! Getting some charity projects loaded and quickly done. I don't think this will be a charity quilt, but I don't know where it's going. Some bigger changes to the list.

2018 is off to a running start - I have a feeling it will just get faster as the kids get older! I did finally get a couple of things finished - my PB&J four patch being one of the primary. I make a lot of quilts with no specific destination in mind, but this one was always meant to go into the guest room. I finished the quilting on Social Ladder! I did feather shapes in the diamonds - it was harder to go in one direction than in the other, but it was good practice. Since the colors in this quilt were so vibrant, I could not see using one color for the whole quilt. I ended up using different colors of thread for each colorway. All the color changes were between passes, so it was pretty easy to manage and I'm definitely glad I decided to go that route. Now I just have one more quilt on the binding pile. I've been continuing to work on Crystal Gems. I have a bunch cut, but need to get a few more shapes cut. I need a LOT more of the larger tria
