Normally, I am DONE with all my Christmas shopping and crafting well before Thanksgiving. Totally done. This year - I have lots of great ideas, lots of projects in the works, but nothing completely, totally done.
So when I got home from work, I got busy:
And put all my vintage bed sheets to great use! And these sheets go a llllloooooooooooong way. I used 7 different sheets, but only about 1/3 of each sheet, and I have enough blocks for 2 or 3 good sized quilts (the blocks are all 10 1/2" square).
Originally I was going to back these with another sheet, but now I'm thinking flannel to give them some weight.
And I could not sew on either Tyler or Jessie's sheet quilt - he kept coming into the sewing
room to show me all the cute things that Midnight was doing:
And yes, that is how he normally carries Midnight around. I think the cat knows a good thing when he sees it.
Then this morning, we saw this:
And upon closer look - he was actually balanced on one of the baskets that the water plants sit in:
And on a funner note - I hope EVERYONE gets out there and votes today. Me - I'm going when I get off work at 2:00. Todd went in this morning - and waited for 1 1/2 hours in our tiny little village. Hopefully I won't have to wait that long.
Have a good day!
