Still Working On Mini Quilt

Fall is definitely here.  Or maybe it's winter?

Knowing the cold was going to hit threw me into a full on
fall clean-up frenzy.   Think garden, decks, windows and
so on.  And that, folks, took care of a nice chunk of my
"week to work on Christmas gifts."  But it was worth it.

This morning I was in flip-flops and enjoying the fall air.
Within a couple hours, I was closing windows.
A couple more hours, it was coat time.
Now there's a good chance of a freeze so I
flipped the furnace to on--just in case.
Lucky for me, I like this stuff.  What makes it even better
is knowing I got all that fall prep done.
That and ordering up a bunch of firewood set to
arrive next week.  And cutting up pumpkins and 
making pumpkin bread.  And drying herbs.
You get the idea.  I'm just ready to hibernate.

Now, back to the gift making.
These blocks haven't been easy and with all those
cleaning breaks, this is all I've gotten done.

There are some not-so-perfect spots but I'm happy with it
and hopefully I can find a good border tomorrow.
So, yep, still working on the one gift!
But it's a start.

Happy fall cleaning quilting!

We get that weather today (68 degrees now, 45 degrees at 5pm today). Hopefully it will be nice quilting weather this weekend for both of us.

It is pleasant here in Oregon, cool sunny days, cold nights. Looks like you have made a lot of progress on your mini - it looks great.
