What's up today

I am so behind I feel like it not what's up but what's upside down, me. I keep telling myself that I will get it all done, no worries. And really it's true, we put on our self more than we need to so if I wanted  I could just say no, I have gotten better at it too. This time of year it seems like it all just piles up, no matter how well we  plan. But I can say I did accomplish some of the projects I have. 

I did get the "little dudes" stockings done yesterday 

 and they are now on there way to California. The poor little ones have come down with their first cold. Thank goodness their mom is a nurse and Grandma needn't worry.

I've been working on Bonnie Hunter's mystery  "Easy Street"  and so far I have been able to keep up
This is clue 3.

 I had changed my colorway and so far I'm liking what I see. I am using Deb Tucker's trimmers when making my units instead of the easy angler like she does. The main reason is I like the fact that you use strips most of the time for construction and your units go together so easily and when trimmed they are perfect. Then the  units and blocks will fit together so nicely. I'll have to here soon do a post about them and what I've done.

And then still to be done is what's on my wall

I hope to get the boys top finished this week so I can finish at least one of my UFO's before the year is up. 

I want to share some of the gifts I have been making along with the patterns and instructions. So staring tomorrow I'll share a no-sew fleece scarf. This one is not like most you've seen, I least I don't think so.



  1. oh those stockings are so adorable! I am spending some time trying to figure out how I can be in charge of my quilt life?!

  2. Yes! Those stockings are awesome. :D And I love your Easy Street fabrics.

  3. Darling stockings!
    Nice job, getting closer now!
    On the other hand I hate to see it end. :)

  4. I have heard good things about the Tucker Trimmer - haven't purchased it yet. Will be anxious to see the no-sew fleece scarf. There are so many out there - I can't imagine another one!

    The colors you chose for your Easy Street will be great. :)


  5. Great job, love those colors, can't wait to see the finished quilt. Stocking is just fabulous! Tried not to take on too much this year. Hubby retired and needs attention. Can't even seem to get Christmas shopping done.

  6. What an awesome grandma you are! Love the stockings.

  7. I love snowmen, cute stockings!

  8. I have some plans to make some small gifts , but time is running short. The snowmen are really cute.

  9. Wow, those stockings have so much work in them! I'm sure they will be appreciated and used in the years to come. Your shaded 4-patches are lovely - such nice blues.

  10. I like the color schemes for your Easy Street blocks--very homey! I've been hearing a lot about the Tucker Trimmer so I think I'll treat myself to one. I'm always looking for an easier way to do anything with angles.
    The stockings and blankies are awesome--I know they'll love them when they're big boys.
    I'm working on an I-spy for my 2-year old grandson--not really loving the novelty fabrics but I know he will.

    Happy Crafting!

  11. Oh those stockings are very detailed and just wonderful!!

    Have a Merry Christmas!!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
