Playing in sewing room

Decided to make some small bags had to go to the thrift store to find zippers as there is nowhere to buy in town, not much there but made some til I ran out of pellon, ordered some but won't be here probably til after Christmas. These were as addicting to make as the mug rugs.
 Shawn, Deanne and gd Autumn will be here tomorrow for the holidays, need to make dessert (Sex in a Pan), and my Wife Saver breakfast yet, took the turkey out and it's in the fridge to defrost.
I already have a few new projects for the new yr. just got an email that my Civil War Melodies kit has been shipped, then I bought some Christmas fabric to make the Christmas Balls pattern from Thimble Blossoms
If I don't get back here I'm wishing you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and all the best in the coming yr.

10 Days til Christmas

Well I've been busy baking, just need to make a square that mom used to make I found the recipe, so will make it tomorrow. Still need 2 more gifts to buy, next week I will get the gifts wrapped, sent out 2 parcels postage is so expensive could of bought another gift!
My Christmas cactus is in bloom needs to be re potted  once it's finished blooming.
Did some Christmas decorating today and found this I made it years ago,made from kids wooden alphabet  blocks then just added some small Christmas and the boys little toys when they were young, spelled out their names and spelled out Merry Christmas on the bottom layer. I put it on a lazy susan so you can turn it.

Cleaned off the mantel, good thing Christmas comes once a year as I can dust it off

Row 8 Mittens

Finished the 8th row of Lori's Row Along such cute pairs of mittens, I'm really liking how this top is coming along and all from my scraps.
I also found a cute owl that I had to try haven't stitched them yet, as I need to bring out my other sewing machine that zigzags, I have this fall panel, so I decided to cut them out and started to add hst around each panel, got 1 done, all I want it a wall hanging, this is just evolving as I go along, no pattern.

More Mug Rugs

 I went to a Christmas fair in town and was so disappointed with what was there, so I figured if I make some mug rugs add a lg mug and a package of hot chocolate and sell them. Not this yr. but have them for next, don't know what you have to do to rent a table, but will find out. 
Yesterday I made 8 rugs and today 5 my stash is limited for Christmas material.
