Smunday Stash - Huzzah

I managed to finish a few projects this week, balanced by some additional intake. Such is life!

One of the projects I finished is an advent calendar featuring the Grinch.  My husband is a bit of a Grinch about Christmas decorations, so this is in his honor, and also matches the Grinch quilt I made him a few years ago. You can see a close up of the quilting detail in the negative white space in this picture.

Not pictured: the small stuffed Grinch figure that gets moved along the pockets to count the days down. There may have been a cat involved in his mysterious absence from the picture.

After that, I finished a few Christmas gifts (still unnamed), and then the Christmas Story quilt for my husband because of it’s a Major Award!  For whatever reason, this picture of Nina cute-ing it up and interrupting my quilt is one of my most popular Instagrams ever.

Quilting temporarily halted due to excess of cuteness. #Ninavore #catsofinstagram

  1. I love the droid quilt along but totally underestimated how much time it would take. Granted I haven’t devoted as much time to it as I’d like to with a new job and my longarm business Christmas quilting. They may become birthday quilts. Did I mention I’m making two?
