For Christmas,  I had ordered myself  Tannenbaum, a beautiful pattern and its pre-cut fabric quilt kit from Laundry Basket Quilts. Unfortunately there was an issue with the shipping and I received it a month after Christmas on January 25. It came in a beautiful box and each block was was put in its own baggie.

 I have never ordered a pre-cut kit. It feel like a huge indulgence. I was excited to start on it right away and I got a couple of the blocks done.

I have started working on the third block now. It is fun just sewing and not having to worry about anything else.

Image result for finish 

I usually choose One Word for the Year, and this year the word is Finish. I really want to finish what I have started. I have so many projects that are almost completed, that get set aside for one reason or the other and this year is their year! I have reorganized my quilting room and I am ready to begin.

The first finish I have for the year is my hexagon place mat.  I started it on my retreat in November and decided that I did not want to wait until next Christmas to get it done. I am so happy that it is done, and I have a spot to keep it all year round.
