Old Voices New Impressions December Update

Two blocks done this month and three to go of the Old Voices blocks.  First is the Open Wreath block.

And second is the Berry Branches block.

I had the blocks done for quite a while.  Had I taken time to review, I would have realized that I would only have two to share for December and I had time I could have stitched two more.

I will set up a link-up if any of you have blocks to share this month.  I know December was a busy month for most people.

I have more to share with you but will save for a separate post.  Happy New Year.  Fifty years ago today, I was holding a new born baby boy.  Our son Bryan.

Shenandoah Botanical Mountain Laurel Block

I made the Mountain Laurel block almost twice.  I say almost as I decided that the green I used was too dark.  I only had three buds to add when I decided this.  Here is my finished block.

I have tried three times to get a good picture of the reject block and the keeper side by side.  Just couldn't get a really good one but will share the best of the three.

I think I will go ahead and finish the reject block and hold onto it.

You can visit the Facebook page for the sew-along here and see the variety of fabrics others have selected.

Catherine's Garden November/December

I have had the Catherine's Garden blocks done for November and December but have not taken time to do a blog post.  I think we are all busy at this time of year.

The fourth block in this post is my favorite this time.

I changed the header picture to a Nativity quilt that I made a few years ago using one of Cheri Payne's patterns.  I like to have it on my blog during the holiday season.

Back to my stitching.
