more snow days blocks

I haven't had energy to work on any mystery quilts this week, but I had some stitching time  and worked on the tree in between these two blocks of snow days. I nearly have the top row all ready, and part of the bottom row.

I have cut more Christmas fabric for jingle bell square from quiltville's addicted to scraps book. I am afraid I cut enough to make two. lol Each block takes 2 matching fabrics and 4 in the hour glass block and I am afraid I switched the two numbers in my head while counting. But they are so cute!

My goal for the month is to work on American Beauty Rose, a Marie Webster quilt . To do that, I need to prep more blocks for hand stitching. It has been long enough since I worked on it here, that I couldn't remember which way to lay the interfacing pieces to sew them. So I tried one piece.

 It was right the first time.

  1. I love when the sewing works correctly from the beginning.

  2. The blue fabrics in Snow Days really gives a wintery look. I know that is a big embroidery project.

  3. I am so sorry you are low on energy, but it seems to me you have made good use of your time with that wonderful embroidery.

  4. Oh, gosh, I've done that so many times - switched the numbers around while cutting things out! Isn't hand stitching wonderful for those weeks when we need down time? I'm in need of a good couple of days of just hand work.
