Still playing

I'm just playing with value changes and warm vs. cool colors at this point so these blocks are just a test to see how strong are the dark X and light square on point (small squares paths). I don't think they are strong enough so I might try a positive/negative black/white and white/black batik for the paths. I still haven't gotten out all of my trays of cut pieces. This is just the last groups that I had cut and hadn't put away yet.I need to get serious about Christmas and wrap gifts today. I have to get a package ready to mail to my daughter's family too. And I need to clean the house. I think I have a bad case of procrastination.

I know the feeling Wanda! But it all gets done in the end. Have a nice Christmas and I'll be back in the New Year to see what you have been up to! I have valued your friendship across the miles. Thank you. x

It's way more fun playing on the design wall than cleaning the house. Have a good Christmas.

I agree with Joyce. Playing with fabric is a lot more fun than cleaning house.
As for wrapping presents, I am thinking about seeing how much WalMart and Hobby Lobby marks down Christmas fabric after the holiday. If it is really cheap I will buy yardage and use it as wrapping next year!

Oh yes, I can see the black and white working well. Have fun.

I will watch with interest what you decide to do with your top.
No worries all the work and wrapping seem to work out fine.

Have a wonderful Xmas ad all the best for 2010

Merry Christmas, Wanda. I intended to send the fabric and projects for donation yesterday; however, it started to snow and my world is covered with 12 inches of snow. I'll send the package in 2010. I'm including a Christmas ornament from the Main Street Fairmont series so you can hang it on your tree and know that you have a fan and friend in WV.

The black/white pathway idea sounds very promising. I went through a collecting phase of bw fabric but have yet to find just the right project...so maybe this will be it.
Yesterday I went to the post office on three separate occasions in the morning but then made up for it by going to a cookie exchange party in the afternoon and the Nuckcracker Ballet in the evening.

My first thought when I opened your blog was the colors reminded of Mardi Gras ! Fun and happy. Funny how colors effect each one of us.

Today is the day to get all those gifts wrapped for many of us. Will know I am in good company.

Procrastination is seemingly my middle name this year! At least I got the baking started yesterday. But that's it, as far as I got! Started. Hopefully I'll get some more done this afternoon.

We had been procrastinating, until yesterday afternoon. Since then we have cleaned the house and wrapped the gifts - BECAUSE eldest son and wife (and younger son) are coming for a family dinner tonight after which we'll exchange gifts with son/wife (they leave for SC on the 24th to spend Christmas with her family)... motivation came early to our house this year!

(and I would MUCH rather play with fabric than clean, any day of the year!)

Good luck with your to-do list...

I think a lot of us have "procrastination" as our middle name!!! LOL (Just so you know...no package yet but I will let you know when it arrives.....could be weather-related that it didn't get here yet.)

The procrastination bug must be rampant this year. I have set out a couple candles and put lights on the tree. (my dh and I also spent 2 hours with pliers taking the prelit strings off it first. Never, never do that) My only excuse is that the family won't be together for Christmas and I'm bummed, I guess.

Merry Christmas, Wanda. I usually lurk, but your blog is the first thing I go to onlne every morning. Yours and at home with the farmers wife.

I think procrastination is good. The things you do then are far more fun than the chores you are trying to avoid. Trust me on this, I'm an expert.
