Time to update my City Sampler blocks. I think some of these are the best blocks yet:
I'm making lots of progress on my Christmas Countdown Calendar. My level of true desperation for a decent sashing choice manifested itself when I brought two children to Bits N Pieces last Wednesday evening. Now my appreciation for that LQS is growing but navigating a stroller through that crowded store is a feat in and of itself. But it was worth it because this grey snowflake print by Kate Spain could not be more perfect for the project (it also matches the border I am adding).
The most tedious part of this project is over: drawing, cutting, and affixing the numbers. That was definitely my least favorite part of making this!
Yesterday I needed to make a quick gift for a friend and decided to make several "More Pleated Pouches" to have a few spare gifts on hand. These are small and look easy (they are!) but they are much more time consuming than you might think.
I am quite tempted to keep the red and black one for myself.
Thanks for reading. Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
