GIMQ Check in and others

Clue 5 came out Friday and I was able to get it done in a few hours so I had time to play in the quilt room. I also finished the band I was working on my cross stitch sample Pot 4 Dickie. 
Here is clue 5 before I put it away with the other finished clues. These colors are really growing on me and it will be interesting to see how they all come together in a 88" by 88" quilt. 

 Here is P4D and the band I finished. You can see I already started the next band. The next two bands are pretty narrow and shouldn't take to long. I work on my cross stitch when I am not in the quilt room. I have found a good way to prop up my stitching frame and it is making stitching fun again. 
Below are a few things I was playing with in ht e quilt room. I a always surprised by how much I am enjoying this sewing stuff. 

The start of a Winter Table Topper I was playing with.

4 Disappearing Hourglass blocks take 2, only 14 more to go.

Mug Rugs for my brother and Karen.

Gorgeous! 88" x 88" sounds HUGE! I'm sure it will be wonderful when it is finished and I really can't wait to see you start putting it together.

Your P4D is stunning! Great job on GIMQ. Can't wait to see what all 88 inches squared look like.
