jingle bells, jingle bells...

I'm surprised I don't have Christmas music in the cd player, it's feeling so much like Santa's workshop around here. (Am I telling my age by mentioning cd player? So many have their ipods now...)

Anyway...I've mentioned the quilts for the grandkids. I found the fabric for the third quilt this week, and can get started on it. I've pre-washed it, but that's all so far. I've been working on quilting Spidey-man, and that's taking a chunk of time. I've about decided to tie off the next two, partly for simplicity, but also because I want to practice more on smaller quilts before I free motion on these. Spidey's quilting doesn't show up as much as it would on these two, and I want them to look as good as him. Make sense?

I'm participating in a Secret Santa Stocking Swap over on the HGTV message boards. I've made this little stocking to hold the goodies. Our size limits were 8" by 12", and I'm right there. I'll probably come back and put her board name on there some way or another, then our instructions are to have them to the recipient so we can all open them by December 23rd. Surprises are always fun. I like what she's getting, hopefully she will too.

I'm also working on some handwork for the girls at work.

Oops, speaking of work, gotta go finish getting ready so I can head out the door. Merry Christmas all!

Your Christmas stocking is cute. I love your chicken collection. And Merry Christmas to you, too. But wait, did I sleep through Halloween and Thanksgiving?
