Slow Stitching and a December Goal

I have kind of a different One Monthly Goal in December. Since it's so busy around the holidays, this won't get quilted, bound and labeled. My goal will be to get the last two borders on my Primitive Garden top.
I've been working on this project all year thanks to a sew along on Facebook, and this month we are working on the top border. 

This is the November block (border). Several people in the group added their pet dog or cat to some of the blocks. Since I don't have any pets right now, but have lots of squirrels around my bird feeders, I decided to add a couple to this border. I changed up the roof of the feeder and made it into a copper dome just for fun. 


My final border is all prepped and I will be doing some relaxing Slow Sunday Stitching today. I'm so excited to get to the end of this project!

  1. The bird feeder piece could be used separately in a long narrow wall space.

  7. OH, the blocks sewn together is so charming. It's my colors and I wish it was mine. I love the fabrics you chose for the hourglass sashing. It really makes everything pop. That is sure a long squirrel panel. I love that you made it your own. Just so pretty!
