I finished my 12" paper-pieced star block for my Advent table runner! Isn't it pretty? I doubt I'll have any more time to work on this between now and Christmas, but at least it's started. I played around with fabric choices for a LONG time before I started this block, and I think I achieved exactly the effect I was hoping for. Hooray!
And now I'm off to bed. At 1:45 AM, on a SCHOOL DAY. Morning will be painful, but that is why God in His infinite wisdom has blessed me with espresso beverages, n'est-ce pas?
