I did finish this block near the end of last week. I love the happy gingerbread men.
If I were to do it again, I would have chosen a brighter fabric for the ribbon that intertwines the candy canes because they are not very visible. I'm NOT redoing them. I'm hoping some creative quilting will help them to stand out a bit more.
I received my Sue Spargo February kit on Friday. Apparently they were late getting the wool thread from their distributer, hence the delay. I plan to start stitching on it this afternoon.
Everything flip flopped yet again over the weekend. I was having allergy issues Saturday morning, so hubby dropped Mom off at the nursing home for a visit. When I picked her up later, it was obvious she had flipped again. She'd made up her mind to get him out of there. I was not good for much the rest of Saturday or Sunday.
She knows I don't agree with the decision. I'm not helping with the move. She found a friend to take her to visit today, and I guess the same friend will take her tomorrow when the move will take place. As for me, I'm going to move forward.
