Duh......

There are sew many things I should be doing (and finishing!!!).

But what do I do? I start making this with these fabrics:


By 10:30 last night, I had all the flying geese units done (48), and 1 side attached to the center. I thought I might need another red and another green (and maybe yes, maybe no) but I had the fabric, so I'm going with what I have. At least this is going to go quick.



I told Todd this could be my "from me to me" present for Christmas. He did think that was a good idea - as then he doesn't have to go Christmas shopping!


But really, I'm getting ready for a 7 hour car ride to PA, plus numerous hours just sitting around talking, eating and visiting. So might as well have a bunch of 1/2 finished projects to take along and finish by hand.


Todd did ask me if I enjoy jumping around from project to project:)

Enjoy your car ride to PA. It is always nice to start a new priject. The flying geese blocks looks great.

How pretty! And I think you should definitely gift yourself for all you make and give to others. :)

My hubby, too, would jump at the chance that I would relieve him of shopping for me. MEN! But they're still kinda nice to have around as companions.

Have a safe journey to PA and a most excellent visit...Ana

Love your flying geese. Way to plan ahead for your upcoming trip and fill the hours of the drive with something productive.

These are gorgeous! My husband asked me the same thing but I don't get as much done as you. How do you do it??

Sometimes I think we just need to start something new once in awhile. I'm afraid if I finish everything I won't be able to figure out what to do. So I keep starting things so there are always UFOs. Your project will be great. I can't wait to see photos when it's finished.
