Santa's Coming to Town....!

Yes, I know, Santa just paid us a visit ... but there's nothing like getting an early start! ;o)

Remember this pattern that I complaint about mentioned on a prior post?

Well, I finally got around to making the photocopies.  I do love the blocks.

Yep, I have all the blocks traced onto "antiqued/aged" muslin from Marcus Brothers Textile!

It's one of those project that I classify as mindless. It does not require a lot of thinking thus soothing to the mind.

I have had a need to quiet/sooth my mind as of late and this is the perfect pattern.  

First block done!

I always tend to work the tedious block first, as the motivation is over the top.  It's so much fun starting a new project! ;o)

However, the motivation does tend to slowdown towards the end, hence why I like to keep the less complex block for last.  It just makes it that much more motivating to get the quilt completed.

Thanks for stopping by!  cheers!

I love using the aged muslin for my stitchery and want to try some mini ones, but I need to come up with designs I like, something prim, but simple enough to fit in a mini quilt.
