What's On My Design Wall-Week 7

Can you believe Judy has been hosting Design Wall Monday for 7 weeks now?? It has been fun to see what others are working on and it has been fun for me to work on things I have had hid out for such a long time.

I decided a couple weeks ago to get out this little redwork Christmas project and since I had been thinking about Christmas in July stuff, this needs to be finished. I had 2 blocks finished and the other 2 went pretty fast. And the tablerunner from last week, I still need to go to the quilt shop for the border fabric. I'm going to try to get there Wednesday.

This morning I started to work on the pieced blocks. I pressed and cut the stitched blocks, made the pinwheel block (that I will be taking apart and fixing the center!) and my iron died. I thought maybe it would happen soon. It didn't stay hot and yesterday, it got hot--really hot! I plugged in back in this morning and it got hot again so now it is cooling and will hit the garbage can. Why can't things be made to last? Now I have to go buy another iron. (After posting and clicking on my photo, the pinwheel looks scorched, I went in and looked and it is-darn. And boy does that flanned need to be cleaned off!)

So much for my plans......maybe I'll go to Taco Bell for lunch. Hmmm

Cute project, Judy. Aren't irons a pain in the tookus? I'm on the third one in less than 2 years.

I started working on a Christmas quilt but put it away to start something new. This morning I finished making the blocks so I also took myself to Taco Bell. Great minds. lol

Nice stitching, Judy. I love the purse you made for Amanda!
