Two Posts, Two Posts in One!

Very Productive!

Some local friends and I meet once a month at one of the local quilt stores and sew from 6:00pm til midnight. The past few months I haven't done much sewing; choosing instead to either just sit and chat or do some handwork. We gathered last night and I was very productive - woohoo!

I cut these strips sometime in early December and then cast them aside when the Prairie Sweets pattern arrived. I threw them in my tote bag and assembled all the blocks while I was there. I bought some fabric for the setting triangles and I'm hoping to assemble the top today. :-)

Packages, Packages!

Have you been patiently waiting for a little something from me? Could your goodies and/or treasures be one of these packages? I started my day at the post office today and will visit again early next week with more. These packages are blog winnings and two "just because packages"! I have a few more "just because packages" to mail and I'm going to try to get my Pay It Forward surprises out the door next week, too. So, if you have been patiently waiting for something - thank you for your patience! :-)

It's been a very productive week, indeed!

I appreciate that you stop by to visit! Come again soon!

In Friendship!

Hey--hey hey hey I want something!
Send me something! Sounds like when I was young, every time mom would head to the grocery store I'd beg, "bring me a candy bar!"
Love those strips. I hadn't heard of the fabric Yuletide Blessings? I felt like this year was lacking for Christmas fabrics. Seems like all I could find anywhere I went was Holly Jolly.
