Design Wall Monday - December 10th

Winter came to visit last night, it's 27 F outside right now.  I can't complain, My Guy is back in Montana and it's a lot colder there.  However, as is typical, all kinds of things went wrong just after he left.  There were problems with the upstairs thermostat last night.  Why is it that you can fool and fool with something and it still doesn't work,  but you get your guy involved and he tells you to do the the exact same thing you've already done twice but it works when tells you to do it? 

Not a lot of sewing this week, lots of outside activities made it hard to get into the sewing room.  I did get in some sewing time this weekend.  There's not much change to Evening Star, but I did finish up a couple of blocks for the Scrappy Coffee Cup quilt.

Only 4 more cups left to make.  I need to start auditioning sashing and border fabrics for this project.  Maybe I'll get to that point next weekend.  I'm hoping that this week is a bit more laid back than last week was so I can fit in a bit more stitching.

  3. Your coffee cups look wonderful. (I really like them even though I don't drink coffee! Maybe I should think of them as tea cups!)

  6. Another great addition to your coffee cups. Getting close to the end!

    It's only because you gave the thermostat a rest that it worked when Your Guy told you what to do. I'm sure!

  9. I've been away where the temperature was above 90*F but right now it's just 64*! It feels sooooo cold but nothing like your temperatures!

    Love your coffee cup quilt, can't wait to see what you do with borders.
