More mindless sewing

This time of year, I love a bit of mindless sewing.  Something which isn't taxing, but takes your mind off all the Christmas and post Christmas stress which we all suffer from.  Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery fits the bill perfectly, but I've also continued working on my scrap drawer, which is even more mindless and even more satisfying!  I started with the drawer weighing in at 5.5lbs, and look how far I've got! 

Four and a half pounds!  That's a lot of scraps!  As you can see, there's still quite a bit to go.  Go├┤d, because I'm trying out another design. 

This design uses 32 6.5" MAM blocks and 0.75yds of fabric to make a quilt which will finish at about 44".  That's perfect for Linus, and perfect for me.  I've made up a 'kit' using 32 more blocks and some jolly elephant fabric, and have more fabrics ready to go.  Just got to make another 28 MAM blocks! 
Also wanted to show my Christmas present from DH.  

He knows me so well!

You're making great headway there. And what a fab gift, so appropriate!

I'm relieved to know I'm not the only one with several projects on the go at the same time.
