My body woke me up this morning at 5:00. My back hurt and my bladder was full but, (Yay!!!) my headache was gone. I got up, let the dog out, went to potty and came back to bed. I laid there and started thinking about everything but sleep. I soon realized that sleep was not happening, so, I got out of bed, ate some cheerios, made some coffee and headed upstairs. I made another friendship block, this one is for Anna and her quilt is called Hugs and Kisses. She's wanted pastel colors...Pastels aren't really my thing but I did find enough fabric in my stash to put together this sweet block.
Here's a hug for Anna:
Then, I pulled out this red Christmas fabric that my sweet MIL gave me and decided it was just the thing I needed for my 9 Patch Christmas quilt. I looked at Christmas fabric yesterday but decided I would use what I had on hand instead of buying....
I put this red fabric on for the border of this dull Christmas quilt and I like it alot better now. What do you think? I think it really helped this quilt and now if it's quilted in red thread, I think it will look great. So, here's the finished Christmas 9 Patch flimsy.
I'm going to drink another cup of coffee, visit with my husband for a few minutes and then, decide what else I want to work on. More later...
