The center section of El Dorado is in one piece.
I started making flying geese for the borders. I messed up and only cut a third of the green triangles. Plenty of fabric so it's just a matter of cutting more. The strips will be sub-cut for tree trunks.
I didn't have any success finding the Bottom Line thread in gray at any of the local quilt shops...but I did buy my first "Row by Row" kit. No one could resist this quintessential Alaska design...and it was in batiks. If you aren't familiar with the "Row by Row" nationwide quilt program...just check out the Alaska Facebook page for the event...too many extremely cool rows to collect just in this state!

Two more nights of work on my Santas. Next up is adding boots. These two are going much quicker than the first two in the kit. Bet I'll really whip through the last two!
And just a little more news about the puppy...this isn't the one I am getting from the litter but it is such a funny picture. The puppies went outside for the first time last week and one of the males decided to take a nap in the water bowl. I think I will inquire if he is still available...I think he would fit perfectly in our home! Puppies are like potato chips...one really isn't enough.
