I have so many WIP's right now there's not enough time in the day to work on them. I really need to get busy.

Which I'm trying.

Here is a WIP I started 3 years ago

This is the first diamond I've worked on this year.
I had a bag of the hexies with some fabric that I needed to be able to work more on this quilt.

Masked Hexagons, Part II: A English Paper Piecing Variation from Gefilte Quilt

this, that, and everything in between . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Looking back, it's been a fairly busy week/weekend!  It started snowing Tuesday afternoon, and continued well into the evening, giving us a full inch of pretty ground covering . . . 
Coming into the camp.  It took me ninety minutes to get home from work on Tuesday evening!
It was still pretty the next morning, too!

Wednesday I finished up the binding on the last of the Christmas quilts . . .
Three little lap quilts, all with their binding neatly stitched up! Ijust need to pop labels on them.

Thursday we had our annual Christmas Open House at work.  I enjoy getting things ...
