Where do the days go

I feel like I'm losing days. I can't tell you what I did yesterday afternoon. I seemed to be busy all day but I didn't get much accomplished. I guess this is what it is always like just before Christmas. There are a lot of little things to do. I did get busy at night though and sewed the rest of the little triangle squares. Here are the rights and the lefts. Two bags. The one below looks like a game board as it is waiting to be quilted and assembled.
We're back in the deep freeze today and then 2 days of thawing over the weekend. And then snow and freezing rain again on Monday. It is definitely winter here.

Wow! Those litle triangle squares are delightful! For having not accomplished much, you sure have a lot to show us!

That one is my favorite so far.

WOW is right this one is GREAT ! I didn't think I even liked dots till you have shared all your dots. I want to run out and buy a arm full of dotted fabrics.

Our weather guys are predicting our first BIG BLIZZARD with wind chills of -20 below. It's about time we have been having temps in the warm 40's since that early dusting of snow in Oct.

I'm wondering where the last 30 years went! They are predicting highs of -30 here for the weekend. I hope they're wrong. The triangles turned out great. I love dots.

Those triangles are fantastic!!
We have a big change in weather coming too -- today there are little snowflakes drifting by and yet by Monday we're supposed to have temps near 50. Definite headache weather!

Wanda, I just love the colors and fabrics that you chose. Beautiful and it will look even better when it is complete. We have had some flooding here. We had about a month's worth of rain in just one night, last night. Tonight it is all supposed to freeze so driving will be tricky!!

Our thermometer is dipping too, -20 C. but isn't it great that the white light of winter (even during a blizzard) is great for quilting!!

Wanda, your triangles dance!

I love the triangles but I love the movement of the black and white sashing on the top one. Barb

Love these bags.And when you find out where the days have gone, can you find mine?

Tine said...

Your bags are lovely, I like all the dots :)
My days seem to disappear too, I can't believe Christmas is so close, and I haven't baked a single thing with my daugther yet. Tomorrow! We'll do it tomorrow!

I love these things. I really am thinking of how to make a quilt with similar fabrics and triangles.

Hi Wanda,
I'm liking the dots as well. I see dots in my future.
Have you noticed that the black and white batiks have been difficult to find lately? They must come in and out of fashion as does everything.
Love the black and white middle on the top pic.

The "gameboard" looks like it will be a beautiful one!

These triangles are both so beautiful. They look like a lot of fun.
