Alphabetically Speaking

and the countdown begins ...

Packages that needed to be mailed are on their way.  Packages to be hand-delivered are wrapped and ready to go.

I still have a few things that I want to finish if I have time -- two picnic quilts that I promised last Christmas, and a table runner for a last-minute gift exchange.

Plus, we just found out that Grandson-1 got engaged over the weekend and now there's the fiance to add to my list.  I should have anticipated that ... as he was making noises about popping the question in August when GS-2 got married.

When nothing much exciting is happening in the sewing room, I will periodically work my way, alphabetically, down my UFO list.  Next up is Asian Pinwheels.

The blocks will finish at 10" and I have enough leftover fabric to make another 4 blocks for a 4x5 setting.  The main issue I have is the variety of fabrics I have used to make these blocks.

While the crane print is consistent, I have used a variety of BOBs, reds, and creams.  I have several options lined up for sashing, borders, and binding so this should be an easy finish at one of the next sew days.  Stay tuned!

Day 19 in the 31-day challenge
