NASCAR and Birdhouse--What????

I finished the 5th small block for the Polka Dot Girls with birds and birdhouse. Wonder if they will all fit???!!! LOL!! Need to get Block 4 and Block 5 sewn together, ---will do that before I start on block 6--although I do need to trace block 6 so I have something to work on at Sit N Sew Frayed Edges tomorrow! Two days before Christmas and we decided we still need a break and so we are going to meet--the quilt store is open and we will be there!!!!!

Also finished a quilt top that I'm calling NASCAR--when it's quilted and done some little boy ought to love it--lots of cars in the middle and flags around the outside. Fun to make!

Have one more "quilty" gift to buy for Christmas and I will pick that up at the quilt store tomorrow and then I will be finished! Whew! Somethings came up last minute, but we got that covered! Did a little baking--made "Kringla"--an old fashioned pretzel shaped, soft, sweet dough cookie--yummy! A friend of ours made them some 30 years ago and while mine never quite measure up to hers, I still try every few years to make them.

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

I just LOVE Nascar, so I love your quilt, lol. I especially love Dale Jr. Sigh. Have a great Christmas.
