Some Dresden wedges from a former project were sliced in half and became the basis for something like crumb blocks, which I then bordered on two sides. Between the front background and what will be a pieced backing, I think I'll use up most of the DS Quilts Collection fabrics in the stash, although I'm sure there will be a few scraps remaining (yay).
Dad popped in for a visit this morning and volunteered to be a quilt holder-upper for the pictures. Thanks, Pa!
I went to a work Christmas party last night, which included really great food and merriment. It helped me get into the holiday spirit. Maybe our tree will get put up this weekend, which should take all of 10 minutes since it's a small prelit job that lives in the basement with a dust cover over it the rest of the year. Beyond that and a few other do-dads, that will have to suffice for Christmas decorations. The shoulder is still taking time and energy to rehab. I wish I could say that after a month of PT, it's better, but it is, in fact, a bit worse. My doctor appointment is next week, so we'll see if any changes are to be made, but I have a sense it's just going to be more of the same for a while and will take time.
I haven't quilted anything since, sheesh, I don't remember when (summer?), so we'll see how it goes with this baby quilt. The new parents are on family leave until after the first of the year, so I have plenty of time to get it finished. I also finished the table topper flimsy one night/morning between 3:00 and 5:30 a.m. when I couldn't sleep, and I plan to get that quilted soon too.
