Fun little weekend

There are my quilty peeps! You know, I really don't have any quilty buddies in "real life"...I know, AWWWW! :-) My friends are all wonderful people but they lack the quilting gene. But that's okay, I have my bloggy buds! So let's see, what's been going on around here? I am still working on my "secret Christmas project," but now that it's coming to an end I'm thinking I might save it for another gift...the jury is still out. Here's a sneaky-peeky:

It's embroidered, obviously, and I do love to do hand work. It's a nice change from standing at the cutting mat or wrestling with the sewing machine. Annabelle even took an interest yesterday and did a few stitches for me! That was a big shock  because she usually starts snoring loudly whenever I talk about sewing. :-) I know, and she's only 8! Secretly I think she likes it though. She was so funny this weekend. We spent a few hours together yesterday, just the two of us. Mason went to a birthday party at a bounce-house place at a local mall, so us girls spent the two hours hanging out, shopping, eating, etc. She's discovered the store "Justice" and loudly asked Santa in the middle of the store if he would bring one of everything this year. No, Santa wasn't there, she just yelled up to the ceiling. LOL

Such a sweetheart! ♥

Ok, moving on...hey, do you have this Christmas book by Connie Duran? It's called "Quilted Projects for a Country Christmas." I've taken it out of the library a few times and I love it. It's got the cutest projects...stitcheries, dish towels, table runners, etc. Anyway I was at Christmas Tree Shops (my favorite store) last week and they had this book for $1.69! On Amazon it's $27.95. I was so excited. So now I have my very own copy! Now I just have to decide what to make...hmmm...

Today is my nephew Max's birthday...I can't believe he's 9! Seems like just yesterday he was born. *sigh* Now I feel old for saying that. LOL I'm going to go give him a call now...I'll leave you with a picture of a favorite little corner of my dining room sewing room. What is sweeter than a couple of canning jars of buttons, I ask you...?

Have a good one!

  1. I have a mason too! I was going to tell you that before. The buttons are lovely in jars. I love your stitching. I can see it is a grown up Sunbonnet Sue. Love her. Your stitching is really nice. You do a good job. I wish I was as good as you.
