Book Tour Winner, BOM: Deckade and Bees Knees

I wasn't sure if I was suppose to announce the book winner from my blog
on Friday or wait until today when Sherri was going to announce all of the book 
so, now that I have kept you in suspense longer than you probably needed to be...
Laurie of West Texas Threads!
Congratulations Laurie!
You are going to love Sherri's book!
Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway.
It was such a fun one... it was fun for me to read all
the comments I got regarding the preference of 
cloth or paper napkins. Who would have known it
was such a hot topic!

Although I wasn't as domestic as I wanted to be over the weekend...
I did get a little bit of sewing done.
Yes, you know, those cute little gingerbread men for the
Fat Quarter Shop Deckade Block of the Month.
I also got the next block in the group finished...

Some fun little stars.

I am gathering up my blocks from my quilting Bees Knees Quilt Group
project right now too. My group was suppose to make two
blocks each. I have mine and 4 others that were sent back to me.
I am anxious to start working on putting it together but I have several
blocks still coming back to me.
This is the project that I am making with those blocks.
This one was made by Hyacinth Quilt Designs blog.
She has a tutorial and a link to where the block originated...
Amy Smart's blog, Diary of a Quilter.
Do you see that the circles actually are hexagons? I need to do
that part next and make a hexagon for the center also.
I get excited all over again just looking at this photo!

edit: my mistake those are octagon's... hexagon just popped into my head!
