::The Name::

Five Baht Elephant. My mother is from Thailand, where elephants are royal animals. Growing up Mom would tell us to save our pennies, "in case a man came to our door selling elephants." At the time we thought it was the most absurd thing ever. Now I realize it was the Thai version of saving for a rainy day. Lets hope that we can buy an elephant for only five baht!



Made: December Sugar Block

dec sbc

And I’m done! I finished up the last Sugar Block of 2013. This month’s is a paper pieced block, and I love paper piecing! The end result is always precise and perfect, but I like the process. Stitch, trim, press, fold, stitch….

And I’m a little bit sad. I mean, I’m a lot excited to have the blocks finished and all ready to put together into a quilt top. But I can’t believe that it is December. And that the year is just about over. *sigh*

I am not sure how I’m going to arrange these 12 blocks just yet. But Amy just posted on her blog some pretty suggestions for block arrangement – some of them I hadn’t even considered. I’ll probably also poke around the flickr group in hopes that someone has already finished their quilt top.

I’m really excited that Amy’s hosting another round for 2014.
