Santa's Workshop Has Been Busy!

I am not a last minute Christmas shopper.  Actually, I am not a last minute anything.  I hate the stress involved with situations like that.  Some people thrive on it.  I do not.  So, I am not only a NOT a last minute Christmas shopper, I am an early Christmas shopper.  After my trip out tonight, I will have probably 85% of my gifts purchased and the ones that are left will be easy to take care of.

The kids were with us this past weekend so yesterday was wrapping day at our house.  The kids wrapped all of their gifts for their dad and Scott and I wrapped the rest after they went home.  And here is the result of all of our hard work:

Our Christmas isn't until the last weekend in December when we have the kids, but we are sending all of these gifts home with my Dad and Stepmother when they are here this week for Thanksgiving.  Then all we need to add are the ribbons and bows which we will put on when we get there for Christmas.  That way they won't get squished while in transit :-).

My afghan is almost done.  Just one and a half rows of the final border to finish and then blocking it.  I will probably finish the border tonight during the Bears game.  Here are the youngest two felines playing on the sewn together blocks. Those two seem to have a lot of fun together.  I think Sassy likes having another cat close to her size.  For now lol.

Getting There...

I've made good progress on my dishcloth afghan, which I think will be renamed "Patchwork Afghan" since it has a quilt-like look to it. 

I've got the bottom three rows sewn together and the blocks are sewn together for all but the last two rows.  The assembly is going really fast and is an excellent tv watching project.  Then it will be on to the border and it will be done!

Of course Sassy had to get into the picture.  She says she hasn't been on the blog much lately and that needs to change!  lol

Yard Sale Saturday

Yay, it's yard sale Saturday again and I am finally getting my act together to participate!  Colorado Lady is our host today, filling in for Miss Bonnie who is on the road.  Below are my offerings.  Please email me at laura@myveryownquiltshop if you are interested.  I prefer PayPal, but will also take checks or money orders.  Happy Yard Sale-ing!

  • Quilt TOP made by me from leftover blocks from a king size jewel box quilt.  All batik except for the white background fabric.  Measures 34 1/2 x 34 1/2.  $25 plus $5.15 shipping.

  • Paper pieced heart blocks in progress.  One block made, foundations prepared and pieces cut and labeled for the other three.  This would be a great project for learning to paper piece, which was what I was doing with it.  $5 including shipping.

  • Large flat rate box stuffed with scraps, strips, and flannel scraps.  $10 plus $15.45 shipping.

  • Quilt TOP pieced by me.  Measures 21 1/2 x 21 1/2.  Blocks are paper pieced so are very precise.  Fun bright colors with fuchsia border and lots of white space for some awesome machine quilting, which I am not currently capable of doing!!  $15 plus $5.15 shipping.

  • Quilt TOP pieced by me.  Measures 20 1/2 x 20 1/2.  Another setting variation of the same blocks used in the previous quilt.  Blocks are paper pieced so are very precise. Fun bright colors with fuchsia border and lots of white space for some awesome machine quilting, which I am not currently capable of doing!! $15 plus $5.15 shipping.
