I'm Rearin' to Go!

The race is on!
A week from today we will all be able to breathe again!
Isn't that exciting!*?@*!*
I am actually looking forward to the shopping frenzy over the weekend.
But unlike in the past, this year I will be armed with lists and a plan of attack!
Then after that I will be able to sneak into my sewing room...
which has been very neglected lately. I have a few new patterns that are begging for some attention! I have already started making yoyo's for Yoyoville. I have an entire week off from work (whoot whoot!) and just hopefully, fingers crossed, I will be able to tear into a new project or two! Of course there are projects already started that need to be attended to also...

Like this one! A little baby quilt, I just need to do some blanket stitching and then quilt it. I had a friend make a little Scottie dog (Anne Sutton's pattern) to coordinate with the blanket. It's stuffed and has a little sachet of lavender in it! I will take a picture of it when it's all ready to be mailed off.

Of course there is the new Schnibbles to quilt (you are going to love it) , and while I'm at it and the red and white snowball challenge quilt. I wonder how everyone else is doing with that??? Hmmm.

Good morning Sinta, I have finished my December Schnibbles. I made 5 pin cushions with 2 of them the same pattern.

Happy Holidays!

Here are my tuffets. I have not stuffed them yet, because I am debating between using them as coasters or pin cushions... Thanks!
