Do you see that cute prim dollie? It's part of my gift from Peggy, but our dear friend Angela made her. She is just so special...I'll love her always. I'm going to call her Holly. You know, like Christmas Holly. :) Okay, maybe that's kind of corny, but I like it.
Thanks for all the goodies Peggy! :)

I finished this table topper tonight. If you remember this post from LAST YEAR I made two of these, one for my sister and one for me. I finished my sister's for her birthday in October '08, but mine sat in my "to do" basket all year. I was determined to finish it by Christmas and I did!! :) I love this pattern...it's a freebie from Patchalot Patterns.
Whiskers is keeping my box of Thimbleberries fabrics warm for me. Isn't she a helpful kitty? Zach is home for winter break...he needed some snuggle time with his favorite kitty. I'm not sure how much Smokey appreciated it. :)
That's all for now! I hope to be back more often with lots of quilty news!

Make Christmas tree ornaments!
I found a similar idea online about 3-4 years ago, but I don't remember where it was so I can't give proper credit. But this is what I came up with...I think they are adorable! :)
I made 22 of these babies! That's 88 yo-yo's! I'm giving one to each of the volunteers at the thrift shop. I hope they like them!
Also, I went to a small cookie exchange this morning. These are a few of the cookies that I brought...simple santas made from nutter butter cookies. They were a big hit!

Recently, we signed up for a Quilting Sister Christmas exchange and these are the wonderful goodies that I received from Angela.
I absolutely love the mini patriotic quilt. She knows I love all things patriotic and it is perfect for me! Also in the package was a darling snowman ornament (snowmen are also my favorite!), a lavender pillow, and pink ribbon zipper pouch. Everything is just perfect Angela...I love it all!! Thanks so much!

The kids have tons of fun making them and they have hardly any sugar at all! :P
I've been getting a little sewing in here and there, not as much as I'd like! I really wanted to try the little tote from this blog. Isn't it just the cutest! Don't you just love Peanut the elephant too?? Last year I gave my mom this quilt for her birthday, so this year for her birthday, I made some matching pillows to go with it.

I guess I'll try to sum it all up in a few pictures.
First off....it was my birthday on the 14th! I received a couple of wonderful gift packages from my friends Peggy and Robin.
Peggy sent me a patriotic wallhanging kit, Star Spangled quilt book, fabric, thread, a spidey mug, candy, and more!! :)
Also, just look at this beautiful embroidered pillow she made for me! I just absolutely love it! You have to click on the picture to see how beautiful it is!
I demo'd the fabric baskets at my local quilt group. So now I have a few baskets made for gifts this Christmas.

I'm off for a week long road trip...I've got a little bag all set with my "Busy Elves" embroidery, so I'm good to go! Hopefully, I'll have some more finished elves to share with you when I return.

I did pretty well keeping up with the monthly stitcheries, but I couldn't decide on the border fabrics for a long time. Actually, I had the green picked out a couple months ago, but didn't decide on the red until last week and I must say, I'm very happy with it! It took very little time to cut the strips and sew them to the little embroidered blocks. ....Voila! I'm caught up! :)
A couple of these blocks were in the lost/missing-for-a-short-time bag that I told you about a couple of months ago! I still have a feeling of relief that these weren't lost forever! :) There is just one more month left on this BOM, I'm ready for it!
p.s. Don't forget to enter my giveaway!
