January 2, 2011

I completed the NYE Mystery top last night.  Could not sleep so I got up and finished putting all the blocks together.  My plans are to put a small border, using the green with gold stars fabric, then binding in the gold.

Today I started working on the Snowglobes that my guild swapped at our December meeting.  I got all of them placed on their background fabric (white on white snowflakes).  I tried to machine applique them, but my machine would not cooperate.  I put a border on one block just to see how it would look.  I really like it.  Plans are to put this border on all of the blocks, then seperate them by a small noodle of red.  This will be my Christmas wallhanging for my office this year, if I can complete it in time.

Tomorrow is the big day -- back to work after 2.5 weeks off.  Wish me luck and stamina to face the mail that has been piling up on my desk!!


  1. I love the snowglobe background and borders. It will look great. I haven't touched mine yet. You are such an inspiration.

  2. Sandra..are you on fabricaholics?? Is this the nye mystery from there? I am on that list, though I don't post often and I didn't join this mystery as I still have a mystery from the mysteries for relay I haven't finished up. I just LOVE this top and might have to add it to my to do list!! Btw...I MISS you!! When are good times for a phone call??
