Alietare Update

We had a lovely Christmas.  We had already visited our grandgirls and son/DIL mid December so the two weeks before Christmas were spent making and delivering Deviled eggs to Greg's doctors and coordinating the blessing for the staff at our church then Christmas eve day we went to the Moby Dick movie and to church Christmas Eve.  The day of Christmas we FT with the kids, took out Christmas lunch bags for some of the homeless in our community then Greg played with his trains and watched old Christmas themed sitcoms while I sewed.  Just thoroughly enjoyed the day and the reason for it.

I am a little behind with Allietare, I have clues #1,2,3 done but only have 1/2 of #4 and a few of   #5.  Right now I am trying to finish Pies and Tarts which I have worked on incrementally over the last 3 years.  I have all the circles done (English paper piecing) and have all the large ones appliqued to the neutral squares.  Today I started sewing the rows together (I had done 3 already) and gluing on the small tarts on the intersections  of the neutral squares. I can start to applique tonight as i watch tv.  i am seeing an end in sight.  Allietare has become a leader and ender to Pies and Tarts.

Getting lots of help from Bertha.  You can see Celtic Solstice peeking out from under Pies and Tarts

All of large pieces done but only 6 or 8 of the others done.  I have substituted green for gray in my version
You can see how others are doing on Bonnie Hunter's Blog.

Pies and Tarts is looking fabulous! So glad you had a wonderful Christmas.
Our celebration was relaxed this year, and I loved it.
Have a wonderful week!
