Mulitiplying Legos

Legos are everywhere! I have been in the Legos Trance, churning out the blocks, until last night when I hit the wall and could not do one more stitch. You can see that my blocks are growing so fast that they no longer fit my design wall. I have only four blocks left, then I can sew the blocks together. It'll be 60"x80" when done. I am debating whether or not to put a solid border (thin) between the main Legos and the border Legos. That would give the eyes a break, but do I want an eye-break or don't I? Must decide soon.

this row is on the bench as I ran out of room on the wall

I've managed to do a bit of other sewing, too. I made this small wall hanging and installed it above the fireplace. You can see, if you look carefully, that I have my mantle filled with manger scenes. One set glows in the dark! I have a larger set that is on another cabinet top.

These are blocks I made for the December lotto (Sunshine). I wanted to make more and make at least one paper pieced block, but I ran out of time and paper-piecing-inspiration. I can't force it... paper-piecing-inspiration only comes along on its own terms.

We had a fun Christmas party at quilt guild this week. I won a door prize which was a beautiful table runner. I neglected to take a picture of it! I gave it to my daughter, and she seemed to like it.

Today I'm hoping to get some housework done. My least favorite chore, but it's gotta be done!

I'm with you on the housework. I'd rather sweep my garage. But I like the lopok of the Legos. What a lot of work! I can't wait to see whether you choose an eye-break for it or not.
