Movin' right along...
Finally got all 200 some qst and hst all trimmed up to 3.5". quite an accomplishment. Now I am putting them together to make 32 stars in red and green. There are places where I have 8 points coming together...theoretically. I try, anyway. All in good fun. It's like making a doily. Sure the doily is nice, but it's just a bonus. It's about the journey to the doily, ya know. The process is what I love, even more than the finished quilt. I love the sewing and the coming together of color and pattern. I even like the pressing, making it all smooth and seeing if I can't make some of those points come out better!
It's a drab day, today. Snow is all gone and a cold front is upon us. We'll be staying home from the holiday and I wonder if we can get any family or friends to come and share our turkeys. Yes, we have two- I love the leftovers, don't you?

I'd be there in a heartbeat if I could! You know I'll be thinking 'bout y'all! Love you!

I sure know what ya mean about the process being the main thing! I have trouble finishing any project, not just quilting, "cause it's the process that I love more than the finished thing.

We are without snow so far so it may not be a white Christmas when the family comes up here to share our ham & our turkey. Thanksgiving will be by ourselves this time so we may celebrate on Monday or Tuesday or whatever day we are feeling especially thankful.*big smile*

I see you have a new photo. I like it, although I enjoyed the pretty scarf, too.

Let's see how long would it take me to get to your house, hmmmm! LOL I would love to come visit you, we could crochet, laugh, quilt, laugh, etc. Oh, the fun we could have. *sigh*

Anyway, I love the way this new project is shaping up. Makes me want to jump into my scrap bin and start making stars!

Those colors are going to be perfect...comfy but not entirely predictable!
