Just Takes Two Almost Finale

I'm having a lovely time in Sunriver with Randy and Claire. Everybody should do this the week before Christmas!!!! What a great way to relax. We are enjoying to cold snow and wind from inside our cozy sewing spot with hot soup and wine.

I got the final blocks made on Tuesday of Just Takes Two. Yes, I made a mistake, no, I'm not fixing it.
I then proceeded to assembling.....
except I apparently left a few blocks at home!



How annoying! But the missing blocks all go in one section, so it shouldn't be too much to add them when I get home.
It's cold and snowy but we always manage to get outside for a walk. We are going snowshoeing tomorrow!

We had a little accident at our business this week. The driver didn't only knock out the power but caused a surge at our business so I'll be stopping by the office supply on my way home and replacing some equipment. What a pain! As far as I know everyone in the vehicle was ok.

Countdown to Christmas! Have a festive week!!

  7. The quilt is wonderful! My need for closure would have driven me crazy after finding I left some blocks at home. Glad you are coping. : )
    It is beautiful there, but taking a break like that the week before Christmas would require that I be on top of things, and that never seems to happen. Enjoy! : )

  10. LOL! All the exclamations that came to mind when seeing your nearly finished "Just Takes Two" have all been used! It looks marvelous! Wow -- what a way to end a work day, huh? For both y'all and the driver! Glad no one was hurt and hope that it didn't impact business. :)

  11. I have no idea what your mistake is. The blocks look good to me. I can tell you are getting very excited about finishing the main body of the quilt. Have you given thought to the border?
    I saw on the weather report about snowy weather out your way. I can remember when I got excited about the first snow of the year. I have never been snow shoeing. I think I would stay indoors and sew and leave the walking to you.

  21. Your Takes Two blocks are just gorgeous! I'd meant to download the patterns as they were released, but life got busy and I didn't do it... and now that I've seen everyone's blocks laid out together, I'm having serious regrets.

  22. Now that I see the quilt almost all together, I'm thinking I should have made it! You did a lovely job.

  23. The quilt is just stunning, even with a couple of missing blocks. I can not wait to see it all together.
    Sorry about the accident. Glad that only equipment was hurt.

  24. That is gorgeous! You are on a roll with red and white! Love the picture of you in the snow! We are finally getting some cold weather, but not down to freezing, so it's not very cold. Merry Christmas!

  25. Oh, those blocks look incredible all layed out!
    Wish we had some snow. It is just going to miss us tonight, and just be wind and rain here :(

  26. Love seeing all (most) of the blocks sewn together. Well done!
    I wish we had snow. At least it's gotten colder here in Virginia.
    Have fun snowshoeing!

  27. I'm sure it was frustrating to find that you left a few blocks at home, but just look at this beauty!! Each block is unique by itself, but the sum total of all the red/white blocks together is stunning. Well done, Lori.
    Looks like you're enjoying the snow. We're in the middle of the Midwest blizzard -- basically 2/3 of our state has all roads shut down and closed. I prefer the beauty of snow, as you are, not the fury of it.
    Stay warm and keep sewing--enjoying the winter, the walks, and the wine.
