3rd post this month.....Holy cow

Okay so I have decided that I am going to try to post more often. I have been visiting tons of fellow bloggers sites and have been inspired to do better.

Here are a few great sites I found this week. Pine Ridge Quilter, ChookyBlue, Melly&Me. Just to name a few. I had to organize my book marks to get them all in one spot. It is inspiring to me to see what other people are accomplishing. There are some great, skilled quilter's and crafters out there.

Sense we moved into our new home I haven't had much time for sewing. Yesterday I sewed for a long time. My neck and shoulder are screaming at me today for it. I took a long break from sewing while moving and unpacking.

I have a ton of UFO's that I want to work on. So I got out some blocks for a gingerbread man swap I was in. It took a few hours but I was able to complete the top. It didn't turn out perfect but then again nothing seems perfect. It will hand beautifully on mu wall this holiday season.

I also finished a table topper that I am giving away as a Christmas present. I finished to sashing on the top and quilted it yesterday. It turned out pretty and was very easy to make. I used this pattern from quilter's cache. I have to give credit were it is due. Thank you to Marcia Hohn and all the hard work she has put into her site and the free patterns.

I have some Amish BOM that I got from some fabulous ladies at 3 Sister's Cyber Quilting. I was in the swap all this year. If you haven't been over there you should check it out. Louise is a doll and has a great site going. Any who. I want to get that top put together in the next week. I pulled out some Kona black and some bright colors to use in the sashing. My wheels are a turning. LOL. Well I will close for now. God Bless.

What a great little blog you've got going on here. I love your blocks and your Christmas ornament display is really cool. I see all kinds of possibilities with the twig and blocks hanging beneath. Great idea! I'll visit again soon.
