How are your year end plans working out? Hopefully you have a quilt or two ready to get finished up before 2020 is gone forever. I am hopeful that 2021 will be a less eventful year.

I added two more blocks to Soul Searching yesterday and got the top webbed together I'm thinking of a black border. I also need to get a quilt ready to take to our teacher who is out with Covid. It is nice to have a stash of finished quilts ready for emergencies. OK, so maybe I have more than a few quilts ready and waiting. Hopefully I won't need them all before everything settles down.
We had a new window installed in the upstairs bathroom and spent the morning painting the stucco. A new tub and shower enclosure are next on the list. Everything is still working, but it is a bit torn apart right now. We are still tile shopping but I have a tub picked out. I liked one with a swoop on one side because that seems like it would be a nice place to rest your head while soaking. With the new window we have ocean views on two sides, so staring at the ocean seems like a nice idea.
Kurt picked a square tub, but it doesn't seem like it would be as comfortable to me. He also found some Japanese soaking tubs that have built in chairs, but that might be a little too strange. I'd have to try one out first I think. I don't think that bathtubs work like mattresses when you go and lay on them.

Is anyone else desperately ready for a bit of cheer amongst all the really scary happenings in the world?
I feel ready to lock myself in the sewing room and stream something happy while digging into some bright and sunny scraps today. We are nearing the end of the year and I am already starting to make a list of what blocks need to get caught up so that I can start finishing up some quilts in the next couple of months.
