Happy Thanksgiving

Just a quick note to wish all my American Blogger friends a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you have a wonderful day with your family and friends.

On the quilting front, I've finished the applique on another Woodland Christmas block. This one will be called "Have You Been Naughty or Nice?", and will be the 6th in the series. I'm not sure what I'm going to do for the border yet. Probably something pieced.

Chat with you later.

I Got Side-Tracked

I know I said I was going to clean up my messy sewing room, but, what can I say, I got side-tracked. I took one look at the mess, and decided I couldn't deal with it right now, so I just shut the door! LOL Take a look at the photos and you'll know what I mean.!

This is what I did instead.

I had these Mill Hill kits that I had bought a number of years ago, and decided to get them made up for Christmas presents this year. I still need to get a frame made for one of them, but that's 2 gifts off my list!
I'm going to try and tackle the room today. The sun is shining so I'm hoping it will help to keep me motivated. We'll see! LOL
Chat with you later. Bye for now.

Do you ever get those days when everything is an effort! That's what last week was like for me.
I can't blame the weather, because it was gorgeous, just like Spring, but I just couldn't get going. lol
I couldn't decide on a border for the Woodland Christmas design I'd been working on, so I put it aside and started another Woodland Christmas pattern. Then I couldn't decide on the fabrics, and now my sewing room looks like it blew up! I've got piles of fabric and bins everywhere!

Today's job is to try and get it tidied up so I can find things.

I don't have much to show you, but for now, here is a photo of "A Woodland Christmas - Reindeer Games" minus the borders.

Let's hope this week is a bit more productive! Chat with you later.
