Yesterday I worked outside my comfort zone on this pillow top. Why is it, I can put 25 different colors together in a large block without any issues......but not four colors? Four different colors and my brain freezes. Notice I was able to work a plaid into the mix.
I scanned this picture of my granddaughter that was made in 2002 and printed it on Printed Treasures fabric. The picture always reminded me of Cindyloo Who from the Grinch book. I thought I would whip a pillow together yesterday morning......wrong.
I made more flying geese that you can shake a stick at and I still wasn't happy. Not being one to let this get the best of me, I stuck with it and finally finished the pillow after dinner last night.
I'll put this on the quilting machine and quilt it before I put the backing on it. Last night I packed up all of this fabric and put it away in the closet so I won't have to look at it for awhile. I'm sure my daughter-in-law is going to like her pillow.......the verdict is still out with me.
Today I have to write some Christmas cards. I went through every picture that we took last year and tried to pick out the best of the best for my Christmas letter, that I call The Wilder Times. It was nice to reminisce and look back over the year. What a year it was! I always try to put a slide show together for a year in review and we watch it together as a family Christmas Day. I need to get busy or it's not going to happen! Gotta go......
