New Starts

I started two new projects this week-end. I started sewing the blocks I got from Finn together and triming them down. I have not decided on a setting yet. I might go with a traditional setting, on point with a solid color between or I was thinking.........(you might have guessed by now, when I think it could be dangerous) but I was thinking I just might try a setting like Judy at Quilting with Ragdolls posted on October 12th. I really like that concept and thought the blocks might look good like that with warm country colors. I will see what happens and of course I will let you all know what I decide. Any comments will be welcome. Another project, it is never fun to work on just one. Yes I am starting a Christmas wall hanging. I have an idea in my mind for a wall hanging and I am going for it. I hope it turns out as well as I can see it in my minds eye, time will tell. I do not have EQ5 or 6 and I just have to make things up as I go along as I see them in my mind. Stay tuned for the finished wall hanging or table topper, whichever the recipient chooses to use it for.
I also crocheted two and a half hats this week-end. I will tell you I did to much, my hands are aching today and I have been taking it easy. One of the things I did was dig through my fabric tubs, which meant I was moving heavy tubs and lifting, probably to much to soon. I have been really good today though and have hardly done anything.
Well good evening to all and I pray everyone has a good week. I don't know if I will get anything done to share during the week so this just might be the only post until next week-end. Time will tell. Dot

Well, I've never met a plaid I didn't like and I can see I'm going to love whatever those little beauties become *s* Can't wait to see the Christmas piece - it already looks so bright and cheery.
