I Was Waiting to Have a Finished Project...

...or a finished top before I blogged again.  Thought I should have something to show and tell, so to speak.  I see the holidays have taken a toll on my progress.

After Thanksgiving, I went to the BA Mod Quilt Guild partay on December 1, which was a combination of early sewing, partay plus meeting and then more sewing until 11:00 p.m.  You gotta love the Los Altos Library to let us stay so long.  Three of us were the partay planners, so we all spent time gathering the food and then setting up the party that day.  It was quite a success with more than 40 quilters at the partay and 32 staying to sew!

I stayed until 8:00 p.m. and finally had to call it quits, having arrived at 10:30 a.m.  I got some work done on my ABC quilt top and that was when I discovered that I had some blocks that just didn't work - mostly because they were too small.  I tried to "fix" the blocks by adding borders, but after going home and getting a fresh view in the morning when I wasn't so tired, I realized that 3 blocks had to be remade.  So, on Sunday, that's what I did and I started to assemble the top.  I decided to go without sashing.  I am putting the blocks together as they are and will then add a beautiful border (or that is my plan!).  I will show you some photos when I have the top completely together.  

Work is really busy and I have been busy with other things that I will tell you about in another blog.  Christmas is almost upon us.  I have gotten all of my gifts for my grandsons and know what I am getting for my son and daughter-in-law.  Just an implementation issue now!

Trust you are well and also busy with the holiday season.

Aaaaanyway, that's it from the Robertson household.
