Well, whaddya know...... it's been 3 months since my last entry. Lots has happened, with lots of sewing/quilting going on in-between. I had a reunion with some of my girlfriends from college that was SO MUCH FUN. Here's a photo, I hope they don't mind me sharing.
Then once I was back home, it was preparations for Thanksgiving - which entailed making a couple of my favorite pies. (and lots of extra pie crust, yummy!)
The month of December was absolutely filled with sewing gifts. As you can see everyone on my list got the same thing, but in their own color scheme!

It has been really quiet at my house, with both children away at college. Luckily they are closeby, so that we can see them on the weekends. The quiet-ness has allowed me to sew a little here and there, even though it is not as much as I would like to be doing. Made an uber-simple apron for my mother's birthday....she likes to have the skirt portion be terry cloth. Then I am in the midst of making another tote bag for someone here at work. Pictures of that bag when it is completed. In the meantime, I want to make some more of these!

Well, both children are off to college this week! I can't even believe it. Luckily they are closeby and can easily travel home whenever necessary. But this is certainly a big step to have both gone. Son has been in college for 3 years already, but now my baby girl is going too. So we have been collecting supplies for her during the summer. Whereas my son didn't really care for any particular color scheme and went with a neutral mix of beige/tan/brown, my daughter has very definite tastes as do most girls! So we finally decided on this, although hers won't have all the accessories that are shown here in a company photo.

I have managed to make a few more spools to include in my next quilt top. They're so much fun to do, I can't seem to stop. I may end up making a few more and who knows what size the finished top will be? Here's an updated photo - as you can see there is no design wall in my house, just the design bed LOL.

I have joined in the Spools pattern sew-along and have just made a few spools so far. (Pattern by Camille of ThimbleBlossoms http://camilleroskelley.typepad.com/simplify/). Not sure how big I'm going to make it, either 3 X 3 or 4 X 4, but it will be a square version of the quilt. In any case, it's been great fun so far and I'm loving the scrappy look of it!
