Timber!!!!

Yes, that's the sound you make when you bring a tree down. And, I have brought down the tree, with a little help from Sydney. And, then we took down that garland that hangs across the ceiling. So, basically, my holiday un-decorating is done.

But, I still haven't braved organizing the pantry. That might have to wait until Sunday.

But, before I started that, I made three of the blocks from RRCB part 7


And, while I was trying to figure out the mystery, I came up with a couple of blocks.






I'm thinking of a lap quilt from Bonnie's pattern and two lap quilts from these other two layouts as Linus quilts. I'll have to make a little extra, but not much. I could get three quilts for the work of one.

Or, maybe, I'll just keep it for myself. You never know about me.

Take care and have a great New Year's Eve.

Lane, Rob and Sydney who are all sneezing our heads off from the dust coming off our decorations.

Why do your blocks look so great and mine look so Christmasy?
I have the 30 blocks done and am not sure I will even use them because even my hubby says they scream Christmas. So, keep me posted on how many quilts you do make from these units.
XOXOXO Subee
