With my class starting last week I have had hardly anytime to sew. I did go to a quilt store yesterday though and of course picked up a couple cool quilt kits. One is a table runner by Sandra G. and the other one is a small Santa. I hope to have time just to think and maybe make some cookies. Then if there was extra time sew something together. It is always tough having classes go right up to Christmas, there is so much that just does not get done because of the studying but I know that when I'm done it will be worth the inconvenience.

I have managed to also get a few small Christmas presents made this week. I still have a ways to go but its a start. I have been struggling to get in the holiday spirit. With so many changes in the house it really is tough to put on a smile and act like nothing has happened. But as my husband says we need to still continue on because we do still have someone who relys on us to provide her a great holiday. Memories are made by family activities, so I will try my best to get over my bahumbug mood.

Oh lastweek Pat Sloan posted the new farmers Market block and I whipped it out using the extra large yo-yo maker. This block was so much fun and easy to do.

I have decided that I need to find the local Charms anonymous group. I really seem to have an addiction to these little 5" cuties. But they are so much fun to play with and yet make something usable for the family. Before I give up this addiction I better put together the other 12 charm packs I have left. Some of the charms I plan on making some bags with.

This started out a misc. blocks that we cut to the same size. She laid them out just like she wanted.We were ready to put on the last border. Then decided to add the red candy cane print all the way around the top. It was a great Idea to use the red all around the quilt. It sure made the blocks stand out better.
As you can tell she is very proud of her hard work for the day. Now I have to find time to quilt this so she can use it. So I was not allowed to do my personal sewing but her smile and attitude sure was worth the time given to help her learn the beginnings of quilting.
