Four little "pretties" out of the chaos...

I finished four more Lori Smith "Song of Spring" hand applique blocks while my quilt cave was torn up.  This was during my recent purge, re-arrange, and clean-up of my sewing troll hole.  Even with my level of OCD, the most organized space needs a refreshing overhaul every now and then.

These blocks finish at only 6 inches.  I now have 7 of 12 finished. They are for a Christmas gift, so I really need to step up the game a bit, don't I...after all, this is only for ONE gift.  How is everyone else doing with the promise of "starting earlier NEXT year!" for the holidays?

These are so fun to work on...small enough to be in a little "to go"container upstairs, just waiting for me to get too freaked out by the basement "in-process" chaos and run screaming for its calming contents.

I don't call this blog Fabric THERAPY for nothin'!

This one is my favorite...I have always loved orange and blue together...maybe because Auburn is my university Alma Mater, and those are the school colors.  I decorated cakes to help get through college...I wish I had a dime for every time I drew an "Aubie" the tiger on a sheet cake, using orange and blue frosting on a satin white, buttercream surface.

Lovely fabric is MUCH nicer...and work with (and less calories...).

In stitches,
