One Step Closer

Woohoo!  The main part of this top is finished.  Next, I'm working on the piano keys border.  Then, another border of the dark navy.

It won't be quilted before Christmas.  If I tried, I wouldn't enjoy the process because it would be so rushed.  Plus, it wouldn't look as nice.  I'm looking forward to this quilting!  Not too dense, but definitely custom.

After quilting, I might add a few jewels, but not too many.  Some of the faces don't have eyes yet.  I haven't decided if they'll be embroidered or jewels.  Probably perl cotton embroidery.  I guess I should do that before quilting.

Time to dash to work.  I'm running a bit late today.

I hope you are making time to enjoy this holiday season.  It can be hectic, but if you select what you'd like to do and what you would rather skip, it's not so overwhelming.  I caught a glimpse of my neighbor's white snowman tree last night.  Very adorable!

Enjoy your day!
