Time Flies When You're Having Fun . . .

or getting ready for Christmas!

It was a busy day of work, followed by our stitchery class's Christmas potluck/ornament exchange, and capped off with a shopping trip to WalMart. Then home to put things away, catch up with Hubby on the home happenings, and do whatever else needed to be taken care of--and SUDDENLY it's after midnight and I need to get to bed so I can get up and do it all over again tomorrow.

A couple of you asked about the quilt in yesterday's post. It's the Butter Churn pattern by This & That; similar in idea to Schnibbles in that the pattern uses charm packs and is tabletopper size when completed. I used Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding line (I had a fat eighth bundle, so my fabrics are a little less scrappy). Here's a photo of the whole thing, quilted:


I finished the binding tonight, which is a good thing because it's a gift I need to send off tomorrow. And tomorrow's going to be another busy day, so I'll say goodnight and wander off to don my winter 'kerchief and get into bed now. I'm glad you could stop by for a quick visit!
