WIP Wednesday - I'm seeing red stars!

Is it just me or does November seem to be flying by? The good news about time flying is that I keep getting closer and closer to my Christmas vacation; the bad news is that I haven't done nearly enough in preparation for this Christmas vacation!

One thing I have done this week is work on my Charming Stars quilt. I was really worried about the red stars and red sashing, but I think it looks awesome! :-)  All of the blocks are pieced and turned into rows.  All that's left now is to sew the rows together and add the borders.  And I'm determined to have that done in time for next week's WIP Wednesday!



I also made the binding for the Christmas quilt I am hoping to finish quilting this weekend.



Next week, I really need to get going on Drop, the November Schnibble. I have made no progress on that one in over a week now.

Oh and we got new bedroom furniture this week. Well... New to us. The dressers are supposed to be over 100 years old and I love them. To protect them, my sweetie asked me to make two table runners ASAP. So that has to go on my To Do list for next week as well. Guess where I'l be every night next week? :-)

Since I'll be linking up to Lee's for WIP Wednesday, here are the numbers:

In progress

- Hourglass Patches
- Charming Stars
- 241 Tote Bag
- Drop

Completed

- None this week, but I hope to have at least one next week.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my US friends!
