In between trying to get organized for Thanksgiving here, which we celebrate on Saturday, I have managed to find a little time to slip in some sewing. I'm trying to keep up with my Just Takes 2 blocks - especially with the holiday entertaining sneaking up on us. These are blocks 98-95.
During the UR Priceless I won a giveaway hosted by Sue at http://suebeesworld.blogspot.com and it arrived in the mail this week. Look at all of the wonderful goodies - lots of great Christmas fabrics, adorable Santa panel blocks and some fantastic gift bags that Sue made. I can tell that I am going to have to make a few more of these. They will really dress up the Christmas gifts this year. Thanks so much, Sue.
The mail also brought my swap mini quilt from the ALQS7. My mini came all the way from Alaska and I just love the wonderful job that Natalie did on it. I love the bright colors and her application of beads and little "eyes" on the swirls. Brilliant idea!!
In the evenings I am working away on my cross stitch stocking for the newest granddaughter. I'm not sure it will be finished by Christmas of 2012, but I doubt that she will care this year.
Our son, DIL and three little ones will be down for the weekend so there will be no sewing. Instead we will be enjoying family time with them. The weather is forecast to be around 80* which is perfect when there are a lot of little ones who want to play outside.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
