It is a happy Monday today because I am all but finished with my Christmas shopping! I was determined to get it done before Thanksgiving and with the exception of a couple of gift cards all I have left to do is wrap up those presents.
This will give me more time to make some special gifts for my friends and family. How adorable is this pincushion. I am constantly amazed with the new ideas people come up with.
This is the book that the pattern is in. It sewed up very quickly and would be perfect for a last minute gift.
I am learning to use my time more wisely and cut out all these circles at book club the other night. I totally changed my mind about using them, but they are always there and you never know where they might turn up!
I am obsessed with the Flowering Snowball block. I think about working on it all day long! I can honestly say I have conquered my fear of curves and am thinking of all the possibilities that are out there in quiltland!
It has been years since I bought any new Christmas decorations. If anything I have been throwing out all the ratty, worn things that I have no interest in any more. I saw this today and thought how vintage, yet modern it looks.
This year I am hosting Christmas Eve and am going all out on the decorations and food, something I have not done in a long time. Once my kids were grown and gone it loses some of it's fun and luster. Now that the little kids are in the picture the fun is back.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it is all about the family (ok the food too). My immediate family is now up to 17 and I love all the craziness the day brings. With a busy week coming up I wish you, your family and friends a Happy Thanksgiving.
