Lucky me, I’ve got a cold, but I’m already getting better (knock wood). I didn’t work on BBP much today, just some (more) beading while I was watching Sunday night’s new Dexter (luv me my dvr). There’s not much more to show, I’ll skip the picture for now and post one when that whole section is beaded. Thank you everyone for your kind comments on BBP!
I’m finally packing up Halloween (oh please like Martha looks at your house and wonders “how does she do it?!”) and ds is pouting because the Halloween quilt is going away. While I am tremendously flattered that I have finally done something right in the boy’s eyes, I can not live with that quilt year round. I told him not to worry, I’d get working on the Christmas themed one soon, and today was the day.
This one is made up of 12 blocks, 6 of “A” and 6 of “B”. Here’s the “A”s.
And block “B”
Oh look, they’re not done. No I didn’t run out of ambition. I once again bought a directional print. Arghhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! So I went online (’cause my local shop is sold out of this entire line!) and ordered another yard & a half to complete the “B” blocks. Hopefully I’ll have it by the weekend. All is not lost, I did notice that the fabric wasn’t going to work before I cut it. And it will work great as the backing for Gingerbread Boy (& girl).
Now I need some opinions, Gingerbread Boy (G.B.) is needing his embellishments, I have pictures of the three options and want to know what you like best. And! between the two heart shaped buttons which are his cheeks, will be an embroidered red smile. (The white scalloped paper you see on the outer border is the template for all 4 sides, they will be scalloped after embellishing and quilting is complete.)
Option 1: Wire edged ribbon bow alone.
Option 2: Wired edge ribbon bow with jingle bell.
Option 3: Green (unwired) ribbon bow with small red button & jingle bell.
