My December trees are finished, and please donate the chances to the other participants. It has been a bit of a struggle getting them finished, my machine refused to form a decent stitch. The upper tension was too loose and I managed to get some blocks done by tightening it, but the machine was going to get the better of me and started doing wierd things. I finally took it in to get checked and won’t get it back till the new year. I finished off the remaining blocks on my trusty Singer Featherweight. I made an extra set of blocks because the purple jewel fabric appears almost black when it was sewn into the block. If it is okay they will just be an extra pair for the pot.

Best wishes to everyone over the Christmas season – have a happy and safe one.


  1. I am so sorry for your machine troubles and happy you were able to persevere and make some blocks, but … it looks like your blocks are 6", 9" and 12" SQUARE and all the blocks this month were supposed to be 6.5" wide (to finish at 6") So, if I am looking at it right, only two sets are the correct width.

  2. Cory, did you ever receive the 2 blocks from Linda Newman in Dallas? If not let me know so I can trace the delivery.
