I am pretty excited to say I have made 81 cross and crown blocks over the course of the year. They are ready to be packed up and sent to the UFO closet ( I mean spa vacation). I have a wonderful collection of civil war reproduction fabrics, and, I rarely use them. I am going to add the scraps into the regular scrap population, so, they might show up occasionally. I have no idea how I am going to assemble them to make a quilt. I was interested in working on precision piecing with these blocks. I think I can say that I improved a bit.

cross and crown blocks
I took advantage of the sale on cabbage for the new year and made a very yummy batch of sauerkraut. It is much easier than it looks. We were happy with the fermentation at about 4 days. The big jar was a goodwill purchase a few months ago. It was big enough for two heads of cabbage. I used peppercorns to add a bit of spice. I will definitely omit them next time. Biting into one is unpleasant, and, they are hard to pick out completely. haha
