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!

Well, what am I going to work on next? And, are you passing the Christmas torch to someone else? And, what is that great quilt going to look like? Yep, life is full of questions.
