And Visions of Quilts Danced through Her Head

Things in the "gift shop" are winding down--once two more bindings are stitched down I'll be done with what I have to finish...although there are a couple of small things I might also do! Here are some things I got done last week...I'm pretty sure all of the recipients are non-blog readers...except for older daughter who has been warned not to look at my blog until after Christmas (the pink set with bag, notepad holder and glam bag are for her).
I've made and delivered a few more pennie pockets as well...they are so cute when filled with yummy treats like candy canes and See's chocolate balls!
I've had a lot of fun making all of these gifts, but I have to say I'm really ready to make quilts again. In fact, I just can't wait to start some new projects...and now that everything is nearly completed on the Christmas list...I have a new list! I want to wish all of my blogging friends a Merry Christmas and hope you have the happiest of times with your family and friends this week!

Lots of Christmas goodness. Sees, did I read Sees? LOVE Sees...you can get is in Ohio at a kiosk in one mall in Central Ohio during Christmas only. Fortunately 2 different friends each send a l pound box during Christmas so my family doesn't go into withdrawls.

Wow, you've been busy, everything looks fabulous!! I'm still struggling to finish my Christmas sewing. The fridge had a bit of meltdown and everything got thrown into chaos - well, even more than usual ;o)!!! Today's the day I'll get it all finished though, as long as no more appliances want to spit the dummy LOL :o)!!!
Have a wonderful Christmas Sherri!!
Hugs,
Joy :o)

Sherri these are 2 things I wish I had time to make. I wanted to make some zipper bags and the pennie pockets. So I'm putting them on my list to start in September. Next week I'm starting a post with things I want to do next year and asking people to pile on and tell me things they wish they had time to do this year. These are definately on my list! Thanks.
