Done by Valentine’s Day?

I’ve completed a page-long list of goals for the new year, and my little postage stamp project has risen to the top of the priorities list. I spent a few hours yesterday watching football and The Holiday (a personal holiday movie favorite) — and I finished about 20 blocks. I have 51 in the current pile of “done”.

Taunting little red squares — including lovely donations from my quilting peeps.

As I was sewing, I realized that I failed to include the number of blocks needed in my original math calculations. After a little more math this morning, the answer is 285. So… I have about 3 1/2 rows complete. Whew! If I can assemble all of the strips pictured above later today, I will have 77 blocks finished and about 5 of 19 rows completed — that’s about 20 percent completed — feel free to check my math!

Valentine’s Day goal — no problem!

And it’s official (airfare and hotel set), I’m traveling to London for a work January 17-25. Besides Liberty of London (I have my eye on this fabric), do you have a suggestion about where to go for dinner, shopping, or off-the-beaten-path sight-seeing? It’s been a long time since I traveled internationally for work, I’m a bit nervous….

    Hi Sandy! How exciting about going to London. I don’t have any suggestions – it’s been a number of years since I’ve visited. that you get to visit Liberty of London! And yay to being almost 20% finished . . . assuming you get all those stitched today. Yippee! Happy New Year. I assume you are feeling much better now. ~smile~ Roseanne

      Roseanne — I’m much better, thanks for remembering. I think of you whenever I’m sewing my red blocks. Your donation pops up regularly!

    I’m glad you are feeling better! Love looking at those little stacks of red. I’ve never traveled internationally, so no help for you there, other than thinking it would be fun to tag along 🙂
