I spent a good part of Monday sewing, and the chill is the air! (Look how muted the colors are this year--because we had such a dry year. Some years these trees are on FIRE!) Not wanting to turn the heat on yet (we play a little game to see how long we can wait to fire up the furnaces--Nov. 1 is our goal--btw, we didn't make our goal..it hit 32 last night!) so I grabbed my favorite grungy sweatshirt and it felt heavy. You guessed it! The camera was in the pocket! Now why on earth did I have my camera there? Who knows where my mind goes sometimes?? Maybe it stayed on vacation? When I got home on Wednesday, I had to take my 'loopy' pills to relax my back enough to feel better--I'm sure that's when I did it. Because I have NO recollection of even getting the camera out of my purse! Oh well, now I'll have TWO cameras.
I also got my little Christmas goodies DONE for my Open House--which isn't for two months! I can't believe I'm being that organized. I usually wait until last minute and then scurry around, getting all stressed out. I'm trying so hard to be better organized for my own sanity, and well, for my hubby's as well. :) I made little pincushion necklaces out of little Delft shoes. I love mine for when I'm doing small handwork to hold a few pins or the needle. I'm amazed I could still find them, I bought them clear back in January when I was in Holland. I made plenty so if I have any extra, I'll have a giveaway.This is a close up picture of my Fat Quarter's Stars made out of Thimbleberries. Someone asked me in the comments about the colors as she couldn't enlarge the photo enough to see the colors. It was a no-reply comment, so I couldn't tell her. So, I'm showing a close up. It's 52" square and wished it were a bit larger so I could send onto Quilts of Valor because as is, it's just not quite long enough. I've been thinking how to make it longer without making it wider. (2) 10" borders on top and bottom would seem a bit odd, in my opinion. Otherwise, not sure what I'm going to do with it. Any ideas?
