The top is done!

Tonight I finished up the top for my Christmas Tree Skirt. Thank you to all of you who offered suggestions on the block placement etc. I decided to go with Jacquie and put all the red squares in the middle. I like it, and I may just get it pinned tonight yet. I don't think I will get it quilted tonight though.

Tomorrow Rich and I are both off so it will be nice to spend the day together and J gets his braces on. Rich and I both work this weekend - him days, me nights. So we will see each other in passing. The kids will be at their mom's and hopefully I will get this finished up, some more things made and the bindings that need done completed.

Have a great night!

I love it! The red looks fantastic - so cherry and Christmassy looking.

Oh! It's so pretty! I Love it!

I understand the whole working two different shifts thing. Once every 5 week rotation I only see my husband for 5 minutes a day for 7 days!
