Sew Much Progress!

It must be the extra (Holiday) time off from the job...

Or, it could be the extra bits of daylight being added onto the end of the day...

Maybe it's the promise of having a cheerful quilt to share with a fuzzy buddy while napping?

Whatever the reason...I'm very happy with the fact that 168 five inch blocks became 42 nine and one half inch blocks....

Which then became seven rows of six blocks...

Which then acquired a one inch border followed by a four inch border...

Which is now a finish 62-ish by 75-ish quilt top?

Ooooh yah! Looks like we're going to be sandwiching and quilting NEXT weekend! :-)

In the meantime....since not sew much progress has been made on my Halloween Victorian House cross stitch...I'm going to try my best to add a few threads on it each night during this week.

It has been fun to read everyone's blog posts about their dreams and aspirations for the New Year. My plans for 2020 are to eat when I'm hungry, sleep when I'm tired...and create when I'm inspired! :-)



  1. Aww, your little kitten is so cute helping you sew. I had to have my 17.5 yo kitten put to sleep 2 weeks ago and I miss him terribly. Don't think I'll have another as losing them is so difficult. Your progress is looking good and I LOVE the haunted cross-stitch house. I'm doing a little every night on a Christmas piece and it will get finished!!

  2. You had lots of help with that wonderful quilt. Your goals for the new year sound good and sound.

  3. Beautiful quilt. I like your plan to work on your stitching a little bit each day. Before you know it, it will be completed !

  4. Hi Sharon,
    All those numbers made my head spin, but the final result is beautiful, and Berwyn certainly makes things look even better!
    Love your plan for the year, too!! Sounds just perfect!!
    Enjoy your stitching time!
    Heart Hugs~

  5. I love your 2020 plans...and I hope you are inspired daily (and will share with us!).
    Loverly quilt :)

  6. That sweet quilt is like sunshine! Your kitty certainly approves.

  7. Blue and yellow together make such a fresh, happy quilt.You had such a good helper with the assembly process. :)
    I hope you are able to succeed with your daily goal on your cross-stitch. I am not very good about maintaining slow and steady progress.

  8. I am surprised at how many people have gone back to adding counted cross stitch to their stitching. It is so tempting but I have umpteen quilt projects already planned and many with fabric and other supplies already purchased.

  9. ohmy! Sharon! That is so beautiful! Looking forward to seeing it completed...you are awesome!! XO

  10. Hi Sharon! Dropping in to say thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog last month. I'm finally finding the time to return the visit :) Love this beautiful quilt--blue and white and blue and yellow are my favorite color combinations. And your sweet kitty--I so miss having one around my house. Nice start on Halloween House, too. I stitched this one back in 2007 and it is still one of my favorites. Happy 2020 to you!

  11. That sounds like an excellent plan! Your quilt is so pretty--it's nice to have a cheerful quilt to work on this time of year, for sure!

  12. What a sweet companion you have helping you sew! Your quilt looks like 62-ish by 75-ish warmth and comfort! I love the colors you chose to share the blocks! Your stitching looks amazing too, it will be fun to watch that grow! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a kind comment! I'll be back for a visit soon!
