Block Buster BOM 9

Man, it has been crazy busy around here! Everything was calm and cool...and then school got out for break. Aaaakkk! Chaos! We have been having a lot of fun, though, and getting a lot of things done. Including this beautiful block.

It's always hectic when there are two holidays back-to-back, so I wasn't sure when I was going to get this done. I figured better to get it done early, right? It also gave me an excuse to go shop the end-of-year sale at my LQS. I managed to find a great backing for a top I finished this year. Hopefully I will start getting some of those finished in the new year. Here's hoping!

I love the colors of this one. The greens are so rich, so deep. They remind me of christmas trees and the cool feeling of winter (We've actually had a winter this year. It's been wonderful!). Most of my points are making it, and I ended up cutting, regretting, and cutting some more. Good thing there's a little extra with each block. Totally worth the tweaking.

I guess the next couple of weeks will be all about the kids. I feel a need to spend as much time with them as I can while they're home. Soon, they'll be going back to school and I can get things done then...maybe...hopefully. That's the plan anyway. ;)
