Tis the Season & SSCS2011

Well I have been in hiding - well not really.  I have been working on Tis the Season from Stitch-A-Long.  I started this when it first was posted on the blog.  But I left it in back as I thought I would have plenty of time to get it done...While Camping at the end of August I started doing my stitchery for this project... By September 5, I finally had 3 blocks completed.  Once I completed these 3 blocks the rest just seemed to come into place.  And before I knew it the top was done - with a stop at 3 shops. 2 were for the DMC Floss and 1 was for the backing.

The fabric that I used was Fruitcake - I love this fabric and I think it was a nice choice.

Here are the first 3 blocks that I did.  I did all the green block first as I thought it would be easier on me and my mind to do one colour at a time - until I ran out of DMC and then I had to switch.

Then I finished the next 6 blocks and put the border on.

Then I tried my hand again at Quilting this myself... Seeing how I only know how to do crisscross that is what I did here.

I have made the binding but it is not on yet, for a few reasons 1. My wrist has started acting up again so I have taken sometime off the sewing.  2. my son dumped my Best Press on my floor in the sewing room (now I have a starched floor by my cutting table) while I was taking a break from my sewing room.  Yes he knows that he is not allowed in there.

***side note***I have been blog jumping to see some of the gals that are in the SSCS2011 so if you see me there, I am just visiting and see what you are all about...
