All Buttoned Up!!!!!

Finally some production to report on!!!! Saturday was quite the day. Some of the Monday night group came over for a sewathon, well some eating also!! Such a beautiful day..not too hot which was a relief. I decided to work on my projects that were waiting to have the buttonhole part done. I am embarrassed to say the turkey has been lying in wait for at least two years. But WHOOHOO.....he is done and will fly off to be quilted along with my little Christmas quilt. Great day!!!!

I also finished Block numbers 3 and 4 of the Designer Mystery Block of the Month. These blocks go together like a dream and I have said it before, love these fabrics. It's fun to have a monthly project that is easy to stay on top of! Look at this sweet Santa that you know who gifted me with!!! It is straight from The Polka Dot Pixie. Who would have guessed that Santa would look so good in Polka Dots! I think a new Santa suit trend has been born. Thank you, thank you Doe. Mr. Dottie Santa is definitely my new favorite Chirstmas decoration that will stay out all year long!! Then a surprise package arrived. A Pajama Gram, with the cutest polka dotted flannel PJ's and they even have my named embroidered on them!! How wonderful is this, but I can't figure out who sent them. A sweet little door hanger card was included that said they were from someone special. Hmmmmm, I will have to do some detective work to figure this one out. No family members sent them and seems to me since there are polka dots on them there must be a bloggy person involved!!! They are so soft and comfy looking. I can't wait to wear them. UPDATE...should of known the Pajama Gram secret person is Miss Red Gernaium Cottage!!! WHOO AND A HOO!!!! Thanks Sharon, you sneaky person you!!!! Blue and pink...my two favorite colors!!!
......and you knew it was coming. I can't help myself. Here's my new favorite picture. Seven weeks old tomorrow, it is so hard to believe, and he is starting to smile, really smile. Not that I got gas kind of smile. We just can't get enough of this little guy :-)!! He attended his first quilt group on Saturday with the ladies, but spent his time sleeping!!!

Fall is teasing us a bit. The air has definitely cooled, and the evenings are really a lot cooler. I even put the electric blanket back on the bed today. Not that it will be used for a while, but I can't wait to fire that bad boy up to 7!!!!! I refuse to do the leaf watch on the Liquid Ambers this year...they took forever to turn last Fall, so I will just leave you with this pretty sky post! Come on Fall, I know you are waiting out there somewhere!!!!! Hope that this finds you all well and with some wonderful quilting/crafting projects going on. See you later alligators :-)!!!!!

Luke is just precious! It's a shame they don't stay that way forever, isn't it? They grow up and get hairy legs and other things, lol....oh but we love them anyway, grandbaby boys are just special. Like your Xmas projects you have done. Hope you are enjoying your new hobby, lol.

Hi Cheryl, it's been a little bit and I had to catch up on your blog. My goodness you have such cute gifties and that Santa with his polka dot suit is so cute, but Mr Luke beats him. I really like your projects, somewhere I have that snowman pattern, need to dig for it.
Keep Stitchen'
