One night just before Christmas, the sky looked like it was on fire. It was a totally awesome sunset! I was glad I looked up when I did as I had time to grab my camera and get outside for a few shots. I couldn't go far because I didn't have my coat, my mittens or time. It had faded after a couple of minutes, but was glorious while it lasted.
I finished one quilt but not the second one. I just did straight stitching along the blocks, but I did a large stipple on the black border. The backing is a green print that isn't related to the blocks in any way other than some of the greens are similar. It was well received. I wrapped up the second quilt top and gave it anyway. It is sitting on my sewing machine, waiting for me to finish it up. I have all the supplies except thread.
I finally found the rest of the alpaca/superwash merino yarn. I knit the second mitten and finished it the evening of Dec. 31st. They are soft, pretty and very warm. I was glad to have gotten that project finished before the new year.
