Allietare Week 3

Thank you to the commenters who told me that the hard part was in doing the cutting and who reminded me that it's ok to go at my own pace! I needed those reminders.

So week three is more of the same - I have all my strips cut and paired but only sewed 12 strips together and then about 30 four patches.


In between the strips and four patches I've been sewing the Santa hats as leaders and enders. I've got three sets complete and about 8 more units in various states of completion.


I was sick for three days this week then the weekend was busy as usual, but I did get all the ornaments sewn for my staff and goodie bags made up with treats for our office party on Tuesday. I also made brownies for the party and wrapped gifts for the managers and supervisors who work for me. This year the managers bought all the raffle prizes for the party so I had those to assemble and wrap too.  

I hope to have time to sew one last Christmas gift - a set of pot holders for my future daughter-in-law.  
As the mother of two sons, I was thrilled that both boys girlfriends asked to bake Christmas cookies with me! It's so nice to have the girls around! 

Don't forget to check out Bonnie Hunter's blog to see the progress everyone else made this week.

  1. Sounds like you've been very busy! Hope you are over whatever made you sick. With the strips cut, you can probably get these sewn together in little five-minute spots through the week. All your mystery units are looking good!
