A Head Start!

This morning I woke early.  How early?  So early that even the furbabies didn't bother to get up to accept their dose of morning affection! I made myself a cup of coffee and wandered into my sewing room.  This room always serves as a "catch all" space, and after Christmas it is especially messy.  I took time to tidy up ... thought about 2018 ... the things I would like to accomplish ... and came across a pile of WIPs. 
In true dillydally fashion, on a whim I chose two projects ... they were winter themed ... I decided to finish them today!  The fabric is from the 2010 Minnesota Shop Hop!  All prints are blue ... my favorite color!  This charm square table topper was already quilted, I just needed to bind it!  Easy to accomplish that!
This little 12 inch wall quilt was a kit!  I had done the piecing and layering earlier, so I began machine quilting it!
Yep ... every little snowball block needed to be quilted!  I remember fussy cutting all those snowflakes from a print that included multiple images! 
After I finished the quilting, I decided to make it into a pillow.  Pulled fabric and a zipper from my stash to make the pillow back and finished it with binding!
Added a pillow form ... and it was finished! 
Whew!  Two projects done and January hasn't even arrived yet!  Gosh ... it felt sew dang good ... like I had gotten a head start on 2018!  They will be put to use on Tuesday when I pack up Christmas and pull out my snowmen and winter themed decorations! 

Do what you love!  Do dillydally!
