Snow Days and Wonky Stars...

I've been working my fingers to the bone.

Okay, not really.
But, here's what I have been up to.

The 'Snow Days' block 5 is finally finished.
The design area measures about 10 x 18 inches,
which is much larger than any of the previous blocks.
It seemed to take forever to do.
(be sure to click to enlarge so that you are
able to see the details of this stitchery)

 And, this is where I am on my doll quilt swap quilt.

Right now, it measures 12.5 inches square.
I need to add a border or two, yet.
Little wonky stars...aren't they cute?
I am very happy with how this is looking.
I sure hope my partner will be happy with it.

I'm hoping to get the doll quilt
and a few other things
finished up before next Monday
so I can begin our 
'Christmas in August'
right on time.
(mentioned previously here)
I only have 3 days left, though.
