3 Days Until Christmas!

Can you believe it! Christmas is just a few days away! And tomorrow my hubs and I celebrate 43 years of marriage! Yes, it was crazy to get married just 2 days before Christmas. But, there you have it. Young love does crazy things!

I’ve kept current on Helen Godden’s Christmas Countdown.

Poinsettia petals and leaves are quilted. Next up is the basket using yellow thread.

My grandson’s train quilt is coming along. I’ve been stitching up train track and have it attached to the top and bottom of the quilt.

Here is just a snippet of the bottom track border. Next up more track along the sides of the quilt. More photos to come, next week.

I really don’t know where this past week went. I sure didn’t get a full week of sewing in! I hope, you, my quilting friends have had a good week of seasonal celebrations.

Last Week’s To-Do List:

  1. Stay current with Helen Godden’s Christmas Countdown quilt-along!  ✔️
  2. Piecing train track for outer border of grandson’s quilt. ✔️ Getting there!

This Week’s To-Do List:

  1. Finish Helen Godden’s Christmas Countdown quilt-along! Hope to hang it for Christmas!
  2. Keep chugging along on that train track.

Linking to To-Do Tuesday with Home Sewn by Us. Go take a look and join in!

    Happy Anniversary! We got married right after Christmas in 1976 – that worked for us because I was on Christmas break from college. :) I bet your train quilt is just going to be adorable!

    Love the flower and the train tracks, this will be a quilt that will give many years of joy, even at my age I would delight in having one like that, and go on imaginary trips.

    Good morning and Happy Anniversary! 43 years together is very impressive. I always wanted to get married on Dec 31st – a guaranteed party every year. Oh, the train tracks are turning out so cute!! Your grandson is going to just adore this quilt. I thought the week went by quickly, too. Just a blink before it’s 2021. I wish you and your family a very Happy Holidays. Thank you for linking up this week. {{Hugs}} a bunch for you. ~smile~ Roseanne
