Well, it got me inspired to get my rear in gear. I've had the background fabric for months now and just put it aside while I decided just how big I wanted to make my 'windows'. I finally decided on making them 2 inches which meant that I had to cut my squares at 8.5 inches. I've cut them in batches of four to fit each square and here are two of them ready.

This is number eleven...got it finished last night and decided to start tracing number twelve...the one I've been dreading...before the "Big Guy" that is.
I put the pattern on my light box...got my square all aligned and started tracing. It was coming along just great when I noticed something different...a small slit ...shredding in the fabric. Now this was good fabric I bought for this pattern. If I was going to put a lot of work into it, I wanted to have quality material. Yet there it was..about the size of a dime...it wasn't a cut.... it was shredded like the fabric was weaker at that spot and just gave away. Needless to say I was PO'd. Not only did I have half the pattern traced...and that is a pain to do....I have to cut another strip and then the square which means the rest of that strip will be wasted...If I don't have enough to do Santa and then the outside borders I will be royally PO'd.
Well that is my rant...got that off my chest ...so now I will go to my work space , cut another strip of fabric and get down to it. Any more ruined spots like that and I will say bad words...badder words than the ones I said last night.

I also wanted to stash the pieces into colour batches but you know I swear there are thousands of shades of blue and green and yellow and so on. I did discover, however, that blue and green are my predominate colours. I knew that blue was because I tried to organize blue before but geez, am I ever a green loving person...who knew!
