Oh yeah, and we put up Christmas....

Also in between doing crafting, we took down all of Fall stuff and put up all of our holiday decorations. Mark strung his candy-stripe rope light in the tree out front and we added our Deer light family (must be why I made deer cards this year). Then we did our usual blue and white icicle lights from the garage and house. Then of course I put all of our cute snowmen on the porch.

Time to switch from quilting to scrapbooking

I'm taking a break from quilting to work on my holiday items. I vowed that I would not buy holiday cards since I have a TON of paper, stamps, embellishments, etc for making my own cards. So for the last two days I've been working on those. Then I finally got the inkling to do these vinyl tiles that I have been staring at for weeks. So I made these cards and then some matching tiles. Hope you enjoy!

Simplicity was not simple

Here is another kit that I finally finished. I've only had it for about 18 months or so. Debbie did a wonderful job quilting it and it's hanging in the shop to hopefully entice some other customers to purchase the remaining kits. It wasn't that difficult to make just a long time for me to get to it.

Graceful Reindeer

I'm trying to get something done at home. I finally put a binding on this quilt I did a while ago. It will be a nice wall hanging for the holidays.

Elf Yourself

I know, I know, I should be quilting, making Christmas Cards, or doing the hundreds of other projects sitting on my table waiting for me....but for those of you who are familiar with JibJab and have seen my other is the family doing a hip-hop elf dance....just in time for the holidays.

Halloween Baltimore

I realize I'm a bit late to work on this, but my goal is to have this done by next Halloween. I'm making excellent progress. I have two blocks fused and now I just need to applique them. I'm thinking about getting all the blocks fused first and then do the machine applique. That way I can do all the same color on all the blocks at once. Hope you like them. The owl is sooo cute.

Fall Yellow Brick Road

Now that the hustle and bustle of Halloween is over, we are moving ever closer to the great big holiday event....Sarah's birthday!!!! And here you thought I meant Thanksgiving and Christmas. Anyways, it's been crazy at our house lately, but I did manage to finish putting a binding on my fall yellow-brick-road quilt. Are the colors pretty?

Halloween 2009

I know, I know, it's supposed to be a quilting and scrapbooking blog, BUT I just have to post pictures of my family at Halloween. The kids had a fantastic time trick-or-treating. Rachael is a cave girl, Sarah is Daphne from Scooby Doo and Mark, well, uh, he's a dinosaur. Sigh. Anyways, I was a witch. I know, I didn't have to stretch too far for that. Enjoy the pictures!
