Christmas QAL July - Post 1

I'm linking in to the Christmas QAL which this month is hosted by Hazel http://www.hazelsquilts.blogspot.com
My coffee has kicked in and I am stitching away.  I've already spotted some lovely projects being worked on and know that the December show and tell will be a delight.
 
I have begun to quilt my star by stitching in the ditch.  My goal is to finish this little wall hanging today and that shouldn't be a problem. 

Last night I finished my second slab block.  Hopefully I will make one or two more and then mail them out on Monday. 

Are you distracted easily?  As I was making these slab blocks and seeing what a mess my scraps were in I decided to begin organizing them.  Thus, last night I was cutting, pressing and folding the yellow scraps.  The good news is doing this makes room; the bad news is I have a big shopping bag full of scraps to work on.

Giggle...I know what you mean! I did some fabric shopping yesterday and I have to clean up before I can find a neat and tidy place to put them! Love your bell!
