I am making a little headway with The Santa, The Tree, The Turkey and Me, a block of the month by Anni Downs.
I recently got block five finished —
and have sewn it to the previous block —
On Friday evening during Friday Night Sew In I continued on with block six. This is a small piece that will be appliqued to the rest of the block.
The photo below shows the final berries that needed sewing down; I've since done that so I can now start on the main part of the block.
But for the rest of the evening (and again on Saturday night) I pulled out a basket block to stitch.
Michelle shared this pattern with us during lockdown last year. Something to do to help prevent us all becoming basket cases (!). I was initially going to add a round of them to my lockdown quilt but I think I may be tempted to keep making them and create a whole quilt of them. They're a nice little block to do when you haven't got anything else close by, and a great use of scraps!
I'm not sure what's going to happen with my lockdown quilt....I may end up pulling it apart and doing other things with the blocks. That's something to think about on another day!
A big thank you to Wendy for hosting Friday Night Sew In again this month. And I'm sending hugs and Birthday wishes your way, Wendy, I hope your day was special.
