Holiday Progress

Things are moving along. I put a wreath on the door, I have scented candles burning, I'm drinking my Starbucks Christmas Blend with Peppermint Mocha creamer. I've been watching the holiday movies (happy to catch "It's A Wonderful Life") and I bought a christmas cd to listen to. Oh and got some peppermint ice cream too!
This morning I finished the 4 table runners that
I started about a month ago. They've been waiting for applique. I'm very happy those are done! Now I can move on. I'm taking my staff of twenty lunch on Tuesday so those preparations will keep me out of trouble. That's when I will be giving them the placemats. I'm going to make more of those pretzels too. I made some last week and they are yummy!!
Now for the stash busters, please note that the table runners are completely from stash!! But I will confess to pushing some buttons on Friday. I ordered this "Heels On Wheels" fabric to make a pillow case as joke gift for my now single son. And my next projects are crayon bags for my two little nieces. I have a lot of fat quarters that would be appropriate, but no yardage. Darn, I think I need to shop! Fa La La La LA... Tis the season!
Oh and head on over to Strawberry House Quilts and leave her a message, she's having a giveaway!!
EDITORS NOTE: hmmm about that pretzel link, I don't think crazy Sharon realized that she put her pretzel tutorial in the same post as her husband's polyps.. oh my!! just scroll down and you'll find it.

I love your tablerunners. Wish I had seen them a week ago. I'll have some reading to do to catch up on your blog, too.

Love your table runners! How did the co-workers like the placemats? I realized the same thing about Sharon's post the other day when I referred someone there for the pretzel instructions -- what a crack-up!!!

Lovely! You sure have been busy lately haven't you?

Nan said...

What lovely table runners! I would certainly love to get one - hint, hint!!! Ho ho ho!!!! Good for you, using your stash! I just bought Starbuck's Christmas blend coffee - I'm going to make some tomorrow morning. It should help me with my holiday sewing projects, shouldn't it? As for polyps and pretzels, they go together, don't they? Tee hee!!!!
