Christmas Bonus??

Do you remember when a lot of companies used to give Christmas bonuses, or maybe a lavish Christmas party? I worked for several companies through the years that did one or the other but not in the last few years thats for sure.

I decided that since I am now self employeed I could declare a Christmas Bonus for myself Anyway as my Christmas bonus I put in an order for an Accuquilt GO machine yesterday. I know several people that have them and really enjoy them. They are out of stock until early January but thats ok, I have lots of other projects to work on now anyway.

In an effort to use up stash this is my latest project. It is called Wickedly Easy and was a free on line pattern. I printed it out well over a year ago but never made it. I think it is just perfect for the huge stack of In The Beginnings FQs that I had stashed in a drawer. I am making a total of 16 blocks (16 1/2 inch blocks) so am well on the way to having enough to make a nap quilt top.

I am liking the way this is turning out.

You might just get there "100 used". I'll be interested to see how you like and how much you end up using the Accuquilt GO machine. Did you have to order a set of dies too or did it come with basic set? I like your pastelly Wickedly Easy project. Those are some big blocks at 16.25 inches.

Please let me know what you like/dislike about the accuquilt Go. I live close enough I could *pick on up* when I pass through. Okay--so it's at least 4 hours there--that's on the way to somewhere!

Been a long time since I've seen a bonus too!
