Over and out

This is my last pre-Christmas post, though I shall still be wandering around the internet seeing what other people have been up too.  

Here's progress to date:
There are a few more bits like this too.  

I think I need to have a think about how they are going to relate to each other now, so I can do that in the next couple of weeks.  I also have a cunning plan to keep things ticking over.  There's no prospect of  laying things out, which is just fine, but I know I am going to need more stars and more of the flying geese, so in quiet moments I will try to cut the bits for them.  I'm fine if I can't get to a machine, but this would let me get going again in the new year without a struggle. 

I wish you all a joyful holiday period: time to reflect and enjoy the things, and people, you like the most.

The start has me excited to see how it grows and comes together for you. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and enjoy your time with family!

A good start. Having plans over the holidays that don't involve laying stuff out sounds perfect. No withdrawal symptoms when you can touch fabric.
Merry Christmas. Have a wonderful time with family.

It's a great start. It will give you a lot to mull over while you are celebrating the holidays. I know I've always got some project in the back of my mind even though I am doing other things. Hope you have a happy holiday season. See you next year.

Mmm, stars and flying geese. Fun project/not project over the holidays. I love the yellow/dark blue combination and how this relates to the other quilt but has such a different feel. So much depth. Have a beautiful Christmas and a lovely start to the new year, Kaja!

I'm loving the stars and flying geese, but more so the colors. The richness and that yellow almost say holiday. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and begin 2019 with time for your own reflection.

I have been away from the computer since Dec. 21 so I am just catching up. I like what you have so far! The star design relates well to the flying geese and half square triangles and a few of those will add a lovely point of interest.
