Weekend Stitching: Holiday Stitching?

Merry Christmas Eve!  We are hanging out with family today, doing a bit of cooking and a lot of laughing.  Unfortunately part of the family has to work today, so we won't see them till tonight.  I have plans for some handwork while we all visit, that will be about it for stitching today.  

Between all the gift wrapping, card addressing, and house cleaning there wasn't a lot of time spent in the sewing room this weekend.  I did get some holiday stitching done, Halloween stitching, not Christmas.  

My Guy said the bats needed eyes, so I found some crystal buttons that add just a bit of sparkle and hopefully help those bats look more like bats.  I've turned the second corner on getting the binding stitched, so there should be one more finish before the end of 2018. 

The only progress on the Good Fortune clue #5 was to get the instructions printed out and a decision made on how I'm going to make the blocks.  I'll get back to that on Wednesday after our holiday celebrations with the family are over. 

Wishing everyone a joy filled week.

Cute owls....I wonder when we'll see them in something. Like the eyes too. Have fun with family. I'm heading off tomorrow to a houseful of family. Luckily at my son's house!

Love the addition of the little sparkly eyes! A last minute quilt finish before the ball drops is always exciting :)
