Final 2014 Finish for the Lovely Year of Finishes~

It has been an amazing year,
full of sweet blessings 


many finishes!

I finished my December block
the Ribbon Star by Lee Heinrich
in Honeydew, Cardinal Red and Clover

then had the bright idea to take it to the beach,
for a seasonal picture.

The sand moisture was freezing up on the calm, +20 degree day.

The water was moving in it's slow "gelatin" form,
which I think is neat to watch.

So I thought, "Hey, let's put it by the edge here for contrast.  
What is the worst that could happen?"

The answer came on a breeze as the blocks lifted
and one flew into the Bering Sea.
Luckily, it didn't go too far and the slow-moving water
made it easy to pluck.

The extra weight and moisture helped the blocks 
stay in place for more pictures!

The wet one froze and held the dry block 

Without the splash of color from the blocks,
the seascape was multiple shades 
of white on white.

I hope you have had a year full of good things,
and finished projects!

Thanks so MuCh to Shanna and Melissa
for again hosting the 
Lovely Year of Finishes!

Best Wishes in 2015 to you all.....

Final Finish Up Month and Goal Setting for 2014~

Have you been "elfing" for a while?
Getting everything ready for the holidays?

It is a busy time of the year!
One of my goals is to get the final block finished and 
in the mail for our
Color Adventure.

Here it is half-way done.  
I love it more with every added month.

I hope you get time for yourself
to enjoy
and absorb
this special time of year!
