Sunday Blist

Today after church I just moved in slow speed.
I had intended to do a little outside but didn't.
Ended up doing some reading, helped "the man of the place" feed the cows and then some prep work on the outer border for the Scandinavian Christmas.

I had finished the last block (4) this week and now it's time to work on all the little blocks. There are 4 churn dash blocks to do for this last section.

And there is the outer border too.
It has a couple churn dash blocks, applique hearts blocks and cross stitch snowflakes.
I was going through the package with the pattern and fabric. I had purchased this BOM years ago and at the time didn't go through it to see if all the fabric was included. 
Has had all the fabric in each month up till now.
Should of 

Cause I'm missing the piece that I have highlighted.That is a good size piece and did not have scraps leftover that big.

Thank goodness I had bought some of that fabric years ago.
I just fell in love with it. French General by moda, which feels like real linen.

So I cut the 6" by width.
If I didn't have this fabric I'm not sure what I would've done, stress out of course.

Able to get what I needed cut and the Transfer Eeze put on each one. 

Ready to stitch while watching TV.

Linking this with Kathy at her blog Kathy's Quilt

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
