I'm ready for Christmas, so it's back to the sewing room for me

All the cookies are baked, the decorations are out, the tree is up and the house is looking pretty good. I have only one gift left to purchase and then I will get everything wrapped. I think I'm pretty much ready for Christmas. Yes! :)

So when I got a call from my local quilt store letting me know that my tyme to water class would be resuming last night, I felt like I could spare the time to attend. It felt good to get back to some sewing and quilting related activities. This month was the last of the watering can blocks. Next month we will get the instructions for the setting blocks as well as the borders. I know I am going to like this quilt when it is finished.

I was inspired to get caught up on my buck a block quilt yesterday. I am not sure when I posted last about this one. There are still two more months left, so I don't have all the blocks yet, but I have some of my blocks assembled into a partial top. This is what I have so far.

And I will share another flimsy with you today, just because. I have quite a pile of tops needing to be quilted. I hope to get some of them finished after Christmas is over with. I have several new projects that I would like to start, but I really need to get some of the current ones completed first.

This top is made from swap blocks from a couple different internet swaps. It has alot more color than the picture shows. It is probably too busy. But this is the way it will stay.
