Beautiful, Jacqui - so Christmas-y. I think I limited myself with my country-ish background squares and the crackled sills - so I am revisiting my choices - I should have been more on the ball earlier this week. Oh, well, live and learn! LOL Gerda

I am cheating and using steam a seam. Then I know it will reach to finished category sooner. lol

Too cool!! Jacqui, Debbieann and Cindy, love your blocks.
My afternoon was a bust, sewing wise - right after lunch, Bill, Haley and I went to Canadian Tire for marine oil, life jackets and oars (rows, as Bill calls them LOL). When we got back (Haley saw a hotdog vendor outside the store, so we bought her a Fat Frank - I tell you, I have never seen such a fat hotdog weiner! And she ate the whole thing!) but I digress. I was so tired after we got back (after the way the night went) that I lay down on the couch and napped away a couple of hours! I did get three thimbles cut out, though! I'll work on it more next week.

Thanks to those of you who have posted pics so far - anyone else out there who was sewing them along with us??

I got all my thimbles fused to their windows. I hope to get them stitched later. There is a purple on with a big white kitty on it. lol Guess who I think of with that. Hope to have a pic later.

Raining like cats and dogs tonite. Highly unusual lately.

Hugs and stitches
