First, I have to say "Thank You!" I have absolutely loved reading every comment and all of the lovely ideas you have shared with me for preserving my little vintage finds! I also need to send a giant "Thank You" along to Jodi at Simply This That and the Other for featuring me on her blog yesterday. I was honored to be chosen and truthfully feel unworthy of the recognition; however, I've found some great new blogs because of it! (Oh, and you just have to look at her darling Christmas cottages she posted today)! One more "Thank You" goes out to Kathy at The Humble Quilter for giving me the cool butterfly award this week!
I've been busy--and I know I'm just going to get busier...can you believe Thanksgiving is in a week and Christmas is five weeks from today?! I like to have projects ready to work on whenever I get a few minutes, so I do some of the steps assembly-line fashion to speed things up later. I have 10 more potholders ready to be sewn--the fronts and backs are cut, the handles are made, and the batting and Insul-Brite is cut as well. I've also got a couple of little bags and a few more baskets ready to sew--handles made and major pieces sewn together.
Finally, I'll just finish up with a little more Christmas--here are my Christmas placemats. I made a set of eight from a Debbie Mumm pattern. I like this pattern because they are big enough to hold the plates and silverware--and I love flying geese!
