The first of many Christmas ornaments is finished.  The Polar Bear is darling.  Besides the woll to make him there were all sorts of leftovers.  I've already pulled out two more to work on.  These next two use fabric glue and are not poly filled.  More a craft sort of project than sewing.  Watch out they are coming to you soon.

Hobby Lobby's 40% off all yardage started again this week.  I purchased (from the right) the sashing fabric for Wonky Wishes, a really cute unicorn print in pink and purple for the charity quilt in similar colors that was made over the weekend, and finally a small piece for continued 1" finished HSTs for O Say...Can You See.  A very good shop!

There was a package from Kerry waiting for me after work and my brief shop at Hobby Lobby.  She cut out all the "stripes" for the Kolonization.  You may remember this one from Primitive Gatherings, a Stitch-Along that she brought to us in 2021.  Kerry used her Accu Cutter to start me off on this 12 flag block quilt project.  More om Kolonization coming too!.
You might just be able to make out the quilting design on the first of three Hopscoth Butterscotch.  It really looks nice with both the front and the back.  Kerry picks the pattern and the thead on the charity quilts.  Nice work!
I still have the trimming down and binding to put in place, but it will happen in turn.  Meanwhile I'm working on the next Broken Courthouse Steps.  I just love how this project is using up 2 1/2" scraps.

Enjoy your week=^.^=

That is a very cute little ornament!
Oh, I'll see if I can get to Hobby Lobby this week!
I had to laugh when I saw the little pile of cuttings from Kerry. They look so much like piles of patriotic fabric leftovers in my sewing room, for a minute I had to stare and think if I had sent a pile to you! :)
Kerry chose a lovely pattern for the quilt.

Love the bear, he is ready to be on the tree this year. Anxious to see the many more to come.
Your charity quilts will certainly make someone very happy, great job. Good luck on the
"crafty" ornaments.
