Not much going on around here. I’ve been glued to the TV watching the storm. We used to live 18 miles outside DC. Needless to say, I’m glad we are not there anymore and worried about all of my friends who are still there.
So I did my Zen thing. I find that sewing scraps to a dryer sheet helps me to relax. I can just zone out as I listen to my machine whirr away and my mind goes blank. I made 12 of these blocks and have barely touched my scrap pile. My scraps aren't quite as small as those that Denise made and I posted about it here. Still, I'm having fun and relaxing and using my scraps. At this rate it won’t be long before I have enough squares and can start adding sashings and complete a quilt.
On another note: I’ve been thinking “Christmas Gifts” lately. When I started looking around I thought these Christmas on a Shoe String Placemats should go with this post. Check out Sew Karenand see what I mean.
Until next time, ♥ Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive! Caroll

Quilting for Kids With Cancer
