A few little things that I have been doing...

 I have been a busy, busy girl, as we all are at this time of year!  But...if I have blocks prepped?  I can stitch them in the car!!  I finished these blocks above, minus a little needed embroidery on one or two.  I bound a quilt...that is a big deal, LOL!!  I love the slow stitching of binding a quilt by hand...
 Janet!!  sent the above wonderful ornaments!!  They are tiny, tiny, tiny!!  The little snowman just kind of wanted to be in the picture...I am not in charge at my house, the inanimate objects are, LOL!  Anyway, Janet was raising money for a very worthy cause, and she was generous enough to send these...and STRINGS!!!!  of plaids!!  Of course I screeched with joy...

Thank you, Janet!!  Visit her HERE!!

And my dear friend Lyn sent these wonderful gifts all the way from Australia.  Thank you so much, Lyn...I am so blessed to know you!!  And I will really enjoy making these projects!!




I hope your Christmas was wonderful, each and every one of you!!
Back to work tomorrow for me!

Your floral blocks are so happy! This is going to be such a pretty quilt.
I'm glad you like the ornaments and strings. The plaids just wanted to come to you--I couldn't resist their urgings! : )
I don't recall seeing that fun Primitive Gatherings pattern. Love it!

I like the flower block on the right hand side that looks like the flower is pink. Pretty.
And I recognized the pineapple ornaments right away as having been made by Janet.

Your appliqué flowers are adorable! And Janet's ornaments are too cute. I have a mug rug from her that I just love - it's on my desk now. I'm so glad I can stitch while riding in the car (and read). I got quite a bit done on our last 2 trips.

I have always loved the quilt in your header and I finally got it made this year. I gave it to my son-in-law for Christmas and my best Christmas gift came a few days later when my granddaughter said that her dad wraps himself up in the quilt every night. I would have never got this done if I hadn't been reminded it of the quilt frequently by seeing it in your header. Thanks for the inspiration.
