Way to go Nan!

Yesterday in the mail I got the most wonderful surprise. Nan, who is launching her own online business, sent me two patterns to preview. They are cute as cute can be, and having a new grand baby on the way, well, I'll just have to make one or two or three!!! Tonight is our monthly late night sew, so I think I will be picking out some fabrics and get going on this project right away. Way to go Nan!!!!

Since it is late night sewing, the world famous ball of cheese is already made and in the frig! Tonight I will be working on a Christmas runner because I am on a quest to make a Christmas project a month......following Nan's lead! I am determined to make my monthly quota. If there is time I also need to work on a project for my Valentine swap partner, but think I will keep that top secret :-)!

I finally feel caught up on my sleep after Road, and actually have had a productive couple of days. Here's a quilt that I put the binding on for a customer...... love this quilt and the way Jan did the borders. Last night I dug through my reds and starting making a stack. Another quilt to make someday! Katie is home now and will be here till Sunday. Can't wait to spend some quality time with her and catch up on all her goings on. Sunday all three kids will be here and I think we have decided to barbecue, even though rain is in the forecast! Hope everyone is having a great Friday.

Aren't those patterns from Nan cute? I don't know when I'll get a chance to make them but they are truly adorable.

Thanks for the reminder to finish up my Christmas gift for the month of January! I'm trying to get those done as well!
