Holiday Swap Start

The second Tuesday of the month is the day I have breakfast with other retirees from my old employer.  Only two of us showed up, but we had a nice visit anyway.  Not sure, though, why no one else was there.  After I left the restaurant, I went to the PO to mail my stitchery.  I went to another one than usual, and it was like night and day.  There was only one person finishing up her transaction, and then it was my turn. And it only cost me .44.  So, you can tell it really was a "little stitchery".

Yesterday I started on my Four Seasons Holiday mini.  I still have plenty of time, but you never know what else might interfere.  I should have the top all put together tomorrow and I'll show it to you.

I made a few DJ blocks over the weekend.  I really enjoy making them, but you can see on the bottom one where I sewed the last strip on backward and had to take it out.

I am having trouble with one of my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler's blocks....the applique is giving me fits (applique isn't my strong suit anyway). I am thinking I may have to eliminate the applique blocks from my quilt....as I can't go through this torture with several blocks!!! Your blocks look good!!!

Very nice DJ blocks, like your fabric, are you hand piecing them? They are so tiny.
