Okay! It's Really Time to Get Serious!

With 2015 well on its way, Downtown Abby Recorded and Good Wife and Madame Secretary duly watched, I can rejoice that the month of December's horrible TV is now over!

I wanted to check in on the new Rainbow Scrap Challenge found here and found that while I was whittling away at a cookie tray of remaining 1.5 inch scraps the color this month is blue.

I have these scraps to add for my weekend.

I've also got the beginnings of a quilted pillow.  With only one patch left I think it's great.  I haven't decided on a quilting design yet, but I'll quilt it and make a pillow.  It'll remind me of my journey with my sister's Peacock Fancy.  Found Here

The colors are a bit off and the floor and the border look a bit weird in this picture, but in real life it's really quite lovely and will look great in my living room.

The reality that I really must get busy on the comfort bears I promised my daughter-in-law got me busy with the first bear.  It's not quite complete and it needs a bow from the flannel that I used for the ears and feet.  The pattern proved to be quite complicated for my non pattern mind, but I figured it out and then I found the picture directions on a Pinterest post I'd saved!  I'll work on more bears today now that the Prototype is nearly done.  I can do the handwork while watching my saved TV programs!
