The little Christmas Penguin is finished and hanging on the tree! I didn't have any kind of frame or hoop to put him in, so I decided to be cheap and finish him like a little pillow with a fabric loop. He isn't quite round, but with him hanging on the tree, it's not really an issue.

Slow stitching on a Sunday
I cut two pieces of batting and then a backing of penguin fabric, sewed about 3/4 of the way around with right sides together, and then flipped it right side out. Here's the back:
I top stitched all around to close it up and hold everything together.
He looks a little more uniform from this side, lol!
While that blue penguin fabric was out, I cut pieces for a bowtie block. I've been hand-piecing these, and am caught up with 17 of them stitched - one for each day of the month of December.
So far, my color choices have just been random - whatever is out on the cutting table or in the scrap bin that I can get 2.5 inch and 1.5 inch squares out of. I'll continue this as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project in 2023. I want to make at least 100 of them!
Pieces are prepped for today's block, #18, and that will be my slow stitching project for this afternoon!
