AnoTHer FuN DaY

My second sew-a-thon day was interrupted several times. My son called in for lunch and a swim... and a friend stopped by for a coffee. What FUN... family, friends, and food!
Anyways, in between visits I placed a very special photo in a frame. I brought this little pic from Canada. It originally belonged to my late MIL... and if you take a closer look... you'll see tiny quilts hanging on a backyard clothesline.  I wonder whose home it was? 
It's just PerFeCt for my cubbyhole!

I did manage to do a little sewing too. I put together this "Christmas Stocking" which will be given away in early December. I also added a few gifts to the stocking giveaway... sorry... but I can't show you what's in them yet... but one lucky reader/visitor/follower will WIN the stocking and gifts... all in FuN... just because it's ChRisTMaS... and you all know just how much I  L-o-V-e  Christmas time.
A reminder and details on how to enter, later in November.

I used a fabric called "12 days of Christmas" by Teresa Kogut. Isn't it wonderful!


What will be inside the stocking on "Giveaway" day.
Visit www.rsislandcrafts.com for details on this fun idea and to see who else is playing in the "giveaway".

I am currently working on the quilt top ( all but finished ) for another little Blanket of Love... click HERE for details.
I'm quite pleased with my effort today even though I had hoped for a lot more.
I gave myself an early mark today as I am going out to dinner and a show with a girlfriend at 6pm...
BeTTer get BuSy... I have to decide on the outfit, paint the nails, then I can strap on my shoes... woohoo !

I love your new framed pic - very special and a lovely memory of your MIL. Your stocking is coming along nicely, too. I need to start posting about my Christmas Stocking for the Giveaway, too.

Hugs, Kaye xoxox
