Thanksgiving Eve

My Cute Husband and I (and of course, we're taking Mom) are headed to Florida today.  We're spending Thanksgiving with Kid#2 and her family.  It will all be great ... once we get there.

But. ... getting there - the challenge begins soon.
We're flying.
We picked the worst the day of the year to travel.
There's an East Coast storm heading our way.

We decided to get the holiday decorating done before we go so when we get back - it's already done. We're smart that way.

Day 2 = No Sew

This streak will be broken today (Sunday) ... I hope!

2 days in a row of no sewing?  What is up with THAT?!!  I do have a nice clean house (well ... except for the sewing dungeon).  

There was TV knitting last night.  After almost a year of traveling around the country and almost a year of sitting unfinished in my knitting basket ... DONE!!


This morning, the ends were woven in and this pair is ready for Christmas wrapping.

No Sew Day

Ok - did the title catch your eye?  Are you concerned about me?  I have a ton of errands to do today.  I've already crossed a bunch of things off my " to do" list ... paper work (ugh!)

I did get a package in the mail yesterday. 


I won a prize from Alpcaca With A Twist!!!! All I had to do was follow along on a KAL (knit along) and post a finished photo ... how easy was that !!!

Lots of goodies ...


I know what my Thanksgiving travel project is going to be.

It's now 9:45 - time to shower/dress and get moving ... there might be time later for a teeny bit of sewing.

Done Times 3

Yesterday was a DONE day!
1. Quilted a top that was pieced from the leftovers of the leftovers.


Yes, you read that correctly - the leftovers from the leftovers of a quilt.


2.  A flannel baby pillow, also leftovers.


The triangles are all leftovers from a baby quilt I made a while back.  I used glow-in-the-dark thread.  How fun - and it really does glow.  I took it into my dark laundry room - yep - the thread glowed.

3.  A Christmas table topper

I used glitter thread to quilt this - pretty and shiny!


All of these were delivered today to Spring Water Designs ... I have mentioned - I love my job!

Pretty OP

Another pretty OP is going out into the world tonight.


I believe this was from a Norma Campbell class that our guild had a few weeks ago.  Look at this fun back ...


Elfrieda will have this quilt bound - probably tomorrow.  She's a faster worker.

Road Trip

Nope ... I did not go anywhere. I quilted a play mat for some lucky little kid. (OP quilt).


It still needs a binding and then it will be mailed back to it's owner.  I made one for a Grandie a couple of years ago.  He loves using it with his matchbox cars.

AND ...
Another sweet baby quilt


I don't know who will get snuggled in this but it sure is cuddly. I love that it has Minkie on the back.
