a little bit of sewing...

It's been quite the month and we still have a week to go..  So far I have..

  • attended one viola concert
  • attended one elementary school Christmas concert
  • listened to a a fourth grade class talk about famous "Missourians".  Our granddaughter portrayed Maya Angelou  a famous poet
  • finished the Christmas shopping
  • finished (almost...) the wrapping
  • had an extended family Christmas
  • attended a 40th wedding anniversary party (more on that later)
  • "might" have treated myself to some retail therapy...
and because I had some flannel I made some pillowcases...

one for each of the grandkids..
I met some great friends in Mexico and we did a little retail therapy and lunch...
all fat quarters...
 And I was given this beautiful covered notebook as a Christmas present from a wonderful friend...


Isn't it cute?  I love the bird fabric.. How funny that we picked the same tutorial to use this season... See how she modified it for an adult?  so cute..

I hope to get it together and post about a "surprise anniversary party" sometime this week... in the meantime I need to run to the grocery store and then I bought a little something that caught my eye..and I know I have a bit of stash that is just itching to be sewn together...

See ya soon...
