Time to Get SERIOUS!!!

It cannot be November already. It just cannot be.



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!

The vintage bed sheet quilts look like fun. Flannel would be soft & toasty! As for Midnight,the kitty knows a good thing for sure. Glad your little boy has a new pal, too!

I was fortunate to get in my early vote last Thursday along with hubby. Good luck with those lines today! Hopefully you'll be in and out in the blink of an eye.

I voted at 6:30 this morning...it took me half an hour...the line was a lot longer when I left so I suppose you are wise to get there at 2-ish

vintage sheets for your quilts is a wonderful idea! And flannel for backing will make them so cozy! Love how your son carries the cat. Too funny!

That quilt is going to be fantastic especially with warm flannel to snuggle with! Cute picture of your boy with the kitty! They know a good thing when they come across it. I also love how the kitty is balancing precariously on that gardening bucket! Early voting rocks!:)

Love the vintage sheets quilt, especially with a flannel backing. Sounds very comfortable. I'm feeling a little behind on my Christmas gifts as well, for some reason I was thinking I had a little more time than I actually do.
