I'm sorry I'm a bit late posting today.  Planned to post last night but had a bout with my tummy.  Wish it had been because I'd been out celebrating my Power Ball win ......sadly that wasn't the reason.  :-)

The Christmas Through the Year Train is pulling into its final stop today.  I hope you were on board and ready to link your blog to show gifts you've made during the month of November. 

Remember if you link up you're eligible to win a prize.  This month it's this uber cute (at least I think it's uber cute-LOL) table runner.  I'm obviously still working on the binding but I promise it will be finished when I send it to the winner.  :-)

Tomorrow (Saturday, Dec 1) we will be posting the winner for November and 2 grand prize winners.  If you've participated this year we tossed your name in a hat and you're eligible to win 11 prizes from Cheryl and 11 prizes from me.  :-)
In Friendship!

 This is my final cheerleading, pom-pom shaking post for Christmas Through the Year in 2012.
I know that there are many around blogland working on Christmas gifts and projects - remember to relax and enjoy. 
No stress! 
The Christmas Through the Year Christmas Train will be pulling in to it's final stop on Friday, November 30.  I'll have Mr Linky up and ready for you to link up your blog to show what you've accomplished recently. 
Allie started the CTTY club in 2011 and after one year decided she needed to focus on new challenges and adventures.  I didn't participate in 2011 but was looking forward to participating in 2012 so I was very sad when Allie decided to stop.  Cheryl had been an active participant and wanted to carry Allie's torch through 2012  so we thought it would be fun to do it together.  Fun?  Oh yes we've had lots of fun.  We've decided one year was enough and Carol volunteered to do a CTTY in 2013 but she's now decided she has other challenges and adventures she'd like to pursue so she decided to step back.  :-) 
Maybe YOU would like to volunteer to lead the CTTY club in 2013? 

I'll be back on November 30 to post the final Mr Linky - see you then.

A Fun Finish

Yesterday I finished my Starry Eyed Quilt Countdown to Christmas flimsy and I am beyond thrilled. 
I discovered this pattern on the Moda Bake Shop last year and wanted to make it very badly.  I'd already made several other projects using Countdown to Christmas and simply couldn't justify spending more money.  So, I printed the pattern and added it to my 'someday list'.  Sigh!  :-)

Fast forward to 2012. 
Not long ago I was chatting with my friend, Carol at Brown Quilts 4 Me and she mentioned that she had a fat quarter bundle of Countdown to Christmas and wasn't sure what she wanted to do with it.  Well, I immediately sent the link to the Moda Bake Shop pattern and she was instantly smitten.  :-)  I like being an enabler.  teehee!  The pattern requires a layer cake and two charm packs (ironically I had four charm packs).  She offered to share her fat quarter bundle with me and I offered to send two charm packs to her - TA DA - now we could both make this quilt.  (insert happy dance)  LOL

Carol and I have shared fat quarter bundles in the past and have some wonderful quilts. 
We have lots of fun planning and sharing projects.

Carol, thank you so much for being such a great friend. 

I appreciate your visit - I hope you're enjoying a pieceful day.

In Friendship!

Countdown to Christmas

Hi, Hi, Hi
Here I am....have ya missed me?  LOL
I won't bore you with details regarding what's been keeping me busy.  :-)

BTW, I hope you haven't felt ignored because I've been peeking over your shoulders and enjoying your doings. 

Since I finished my Swoon quilt top I haven't spent much time with my Bestie - Miss Molly
(aka my sewing machine). 
 I have been working on my Snowmen A...Zzzz blocks and making great progress. 
I failed to get a picture of O-Ornaments and I'm almost finished with P-Plum Pudding - woohoo!!!!!   
Snowmen A...Zzzz by Crapapple Hill Studio
(oops I forgot O-Ornaments)
Today I finally spent time in My Happy Place working on yet another Christmas quilt.  I'm using Countdown to Christmas - the hugely popular fabric by Sweetwater for Moda.  Last year I made several small(ish) projects with Countdown to Christmas but I really wanted to make a larger quilt. 
There's a story about this quilt that I'll share when it's finished.  :-)

 November is the final month for Christmas Through the Year for 2012.
It's the final month for Cheryl and I, as well. 
We've had lots of fun taking care of the club but it's time for us to move on down the road. 

The CTTY Train will be making it's final stop on November 30. 
If you make a gift or two and link up your blog post to show the gift(s) with Mr Linky you'll be eligible to win a prize from me.  We will, also, draw two winners for our grand prizes (each of us has 11 gifts for two lucky winners). 

Until next time I hope you enjoy a pieceful day.

In Friendship!
