WiP - the Best Laid Plans

  Well, I had great plans last week - a full day of quilting and a Zentangle class, plus the usual amount of piecing and moving along on Christmas projects. And then Tuesday night, a massive windstorm swept through my town and took out the power for 85% of the population. We were lucky enough to get power back the next morning, but school was cancelled for the rest of the week, and we had friends over almost every day, borrowing our electricity and showers.

If you watch this news story, the church we go to is to the right of the camera. Makes me grateful that we live in a fairly new development with no large trees!

So anyway, the quilting day was cancelled, and piecing has been on and off between visitors. I was able to work on the bookshelf quilt {below} for a friend, but just the straight book piecing. I wasn't about to tackle paper pieced cats without my full concentration!

And sharing the design wall is my gorgeous quarter square triangles, pieced as leaders/enders. I'm already thinking about the sashing. Fast and fun!

And then I fixed the cow Minecraft block, and made a ghast. What's a ghast, you ask? I have no idea. Pretty sure it's a bad guy. Apparently the grey is his tears. Seven blocks to go!

And I played around with my 60º triangle ruler for a bit. It'll end up being a tablerunner for my husband's holiday party White Elephant exchange.

And finally, I finished binding the girl Frozen quilt. I still need to stitch down the label, and check for missed spots in the machine binding, and bind the boy one - but these should be finished and mailed this weekend! Phew. Long before Christmas.
