15 minutes

I was surprised at how much I had accomplished doing 15 minutes here and there.

I've started a little winter wall hanging for Lacy. I found the pattern in this book.

It actually isn't a pattern in this book it is a block in this book. See it right there in the middle of the book. I'm going to make 3 blocks since Lacy has almost 3 boys. :D I'm going to embroider the boys' name in the border under the little boys.

When applique'ing more than 1 block for a quilt I like to do it assembly style. I will applique' everything on each block that uses that color thread. So you may get to see these blocks more than once. I looked hard for some Christmas red fabric in my stash that was not girly. Nope, it wasn't there but I think the red I chose works just fine for little boys. I did a thread change sometime after I did one block because I didn't like the original color I chose.

This is what I've got done! Not bad for 15 minutes at a time.I hope over the next few days I finish the applique' on these little boys.

Cindy I am so glad the book came in handy for you. I love those blocks and the fact that you will embroider the boys names on them. For 15 minutes you did GREAT!

I am really inspired by your work. I wish I could sew.
The sledding blocks are just wonderful.
I love your 3 Kings wallpaper on your blog.
