Christmas countdown?

I have no idea how many days it is until Christmas… I (well Julia really) ordered our cards yesterday and they should arrive in time for me to send them overseas before the day itself. I have booked our hotel in Chippewa Falls for the holiday weekend. I will not be putting up a tree (that’s an old picture up top!). Bah Humbug? Not really. I am just trying to stay happy and sane…

I promised I’d tell you what it was I made last week. It’s a useful thing to put things in! I just need to put some things in it and I’ll get it in the mail by the end of the week. img_1188I’ll call it a hanging organizer? It has lots of pockets, some with dividers and it does have hanging triangles on the back.


I decided I wanted to sew some fabric together yesterday. I found a packet of Hoffman ME+YOU pre-cut triangles from one of my Houston goody bags and stitched them together randomly into rows, sewed the rows together and then layered and quilted them,…

img_1194I had to look hard for some reasonably matched corners for the photographs!!img_1195Now I just have to decide what to do with the quilted piece… mug rugs perhaps?

Then I decided to layer and stitch one of my Frond panels I have maturing in my drawers. I chose the Lily with Baby… (not baby Lilly!)img_1198I still have a lot to do.
img_1199I’m swapping out threads top and bottom  as I go.

Here’s the reverse side.img_1200I’m hoping to get a pretty picture on the back by the time I’ve finished.

I’ll get back to it today and see how far I get.

I started a new scarf last night. I’ve got 800 yards of hand-dyed fingering weight yarn so I’m hoping it will grow big enough to be keep somebody warm. There are still a few Hallmark movies on the DVR…

    I’ve been knitting up a storm making cowls for Christmas presents. Check out Lophelia by Laura Aylor on It works up beautifully! And it uses fingering weight! *wink*
