Making progress!

With all the Christmas sewing and preparations going on this time of year, I had to put the Mystery quilt on the back burner for a while. Yesterday, I was finally able to get back to making the string blocks and now I have a total of 37! I'm so excited...the task doesn't seem so daunting anymore. I know I can get the next 23 done, lickity split! :)
So...I'm two steps behind...what-ev! What's 600 HSTs, anyway? ... pshaw! I can do those in my sleep. LOL (ok...someone smack me!)

Remember a couple weeks ago I posted about the 12 days of Christmas gift exchange I am part of. We've been opening gifts for a few days now and I just had to show you these! Day 4 was "something in holiday style." Aren't these slippers adorable? I'm definitely styling it up wearing these babies. :) I love 'em! They even have little skids on the bottoms, so I won't go slipping and sliding. All the gifts have been great so far!

Hope you are all happy and healthy and enjoying this blessed holiday season!
