A New Project -- Sort of



This is the project I have been working on at Sit ‘N Sew on those days when I haven’t been focused on Jane Stickle Blocks.  Although the pattern called it a table topper, I intend to use it as a Christmas wall hanging.  I will be adding holly applique designs in the open areas of the background. 

 
It has been a relief to have a project that is actually repetitive and relaxing and can be interrupted without creating problems figuring out where to resume work on it.

The kit for this project was purchased in San Antonio last December when Bob and I spent a mini-vacation on the Riverwalk.  My birthday is in late November, his is in late December and our anniversary is in the middle of the month.  So, we called it our “birthaversary” celebration.

Very pretty little quilt--I like the colors and prints you chose. Sometimes too much thinking can make one completely lose interest in a project--good thing you are breaking up the brain work with some sweet and simple piecing :)

Looks beautiful and the holly applique will really be striking! Don't you love those gently aged projects!
