Almost Up to Date!

Good Morning,
I just wanted to show you my progress.
I have all of the December blocks and 
patchwork put together.
I plan to add the side strips after Christmas. 
Its a long panel, isn't it?
Here are the individual blocks


 I placed a button on the flap of my suitcase...and embroidered the tag.
In the states we call our get-a-ways: Vacations


I'm planning to begin another block once I can get some stabilizer. Hobby
Lobby was out of the kind I use when I stopped by on Wednesday...I'm
thinking that it will be a good thing to be working ahead because
sometimes life happens and we get behind....
