A Long Time Coming

First off...A belated Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.  I didn't realize that I hadn't posted since the beginning of the month.  It's been a very busy one, and to be honest, a stressful one.  Things at work are crazy, and I'm exhausted. 

We had a very nice Thanksgiving, but I'm always stunned at the time and effort that goes into Thanksgiving dinner and before you know it, everyone has eaten and left.  It's amazing.  I finished the last of the clean up this morning and then decided I was going to do some sewing. 

So today is "black Friday" - the beginning of the hellish commercialized frenzy that is the "Holiday Season." I believe in celebrating the Christmas Season, and I'm having no part of this holiday madness.  The television is off, the CD player is on and I finished putting the Bali Moons table runner top together.  I'm really glad that I made it a little shorter - it is plenty big enough as it is.  Here is a picture of it on the kitchen island.

I think I may quilt this with wavy horizontal lines because it would be easy to do and similar to the whispy clouds that sometimes partially obscure the full moon :)

Something Sweet...Is Complete

Six pillowcases to help with some sweet dreams :)

The two green ones are for Em and the others for her half sister and three step sisters (they range from about twelve to four years old).  Whenever her father brings them over to my daughter's house to pick Em up for the weekend, the girls comment about Em's pillowcase collection.  I think she will enjoy giving these as Christmas presents.

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!  I am for sure.  The weather has been perfect - lows in the 40's and highs in the 60's.  I'm sipping my third cup of coffee and smelling the pumpkin bread baking in the oven - mmmmm.

Something Sweet - It's a Treat

Guess what I'm up to? 

I love this Robert Kaufman Sweet Treats fabric - makes me hungry...
