I was able to do a good bit of sewing yesterday. This one is coming along nicely - just need to add a couple of borders and the top will be done. It was very easy and so far, all from stash. I'll have to audition some outer borders (after another red border). I already have fabrics pulled for another one in florals. It will look very different, hopefully more feminine. However, I'm not sure if I'll get to that one any time soon.
It's finally been raining here in the bay area. It's a nice relief from the drought we've had all year, but the timing is not great! I'm expecting packages to be delivered for Christmas presents and they'll get soaked outside our door. I'll try running home at lunchtime and hopefully rescue them if they are delivered already. Oh why didn't I have them delivered to my work address???

Not a lot of time for sewing these days. I was able to find some time on Saturday to start on a quick project for class. The strip set squares on the right are for the new project, but that is not how they are going to go together. I just put them up there so I could track how many I had made. Hopefully it will be another project created completely from my fabric stash. Not sure if I have fabric for a border that I will like, so I may have to buy a piece for that. I always forget that it takes much longer to work from scraps. Most of my time was spent pulling pieces, ironing, and cutting. But now I can go to town on sewing it together.
I've stalled on my wreath. I already did the hard part, which was making all of those half-square triangles. I just need to sew them together with the background. I don't think I'll have it ready to hang this year. I need to focus on getting my class projects finished first. January is right around the corner!
