I HAVE BEEN BASTED!!

The quilter in the house finally--
finally got around to getting us basted--
snowmen and trucks--
and--
the newest one that she fussy cut from some cute Christmas fabric--
then she used the rest of this fabric for the backing!!
Now--
I wonder how long it will be before she actually--
actually starts quilting 'us'?????

And--
and she did try to get a better photo of the black kitty-
think he shows up better in this photo--
but it was rainy here all day--
and boy we really needed some--been awhile--!!!

So are the turkeys--
thawing in the refrigerator --
or haven't you got one 'nailed' down yet????
this 'guy' thinks there's a plan B!!!!

along with--

THE CATS ARE DONE--

The other day I kept hearing cat meow's everytime
I went near the sewing area--
and then it got louder and louder--
so finally I gave in and went to see what the problem was--
and it was the Cat quilt blocks--
asking me to finish them up--
I have been making a cat block and a log cabin block each month
 this year with the 'color' of the month series--
and we just had 2 colors to go--
browns and blacks--
soooo--
here is one kitty--
I had this fabric picked out a long time ago for this one--
and this cat sits next to this one on a panel-
and for the dark one--
I found a black fabric with a nice brown ivy on it--
The colors of this one is really pretty--
it just did not photograph that way--darn!!!!!
and here is the log cabin blocks to go with these 2--
again for whatever reason--
these are much prettier than they show here--!!!!
and here is all 12 of my kitties--
But for now these are getting put away--
as there is Christmas stuff to sew--
I have 2 small quilts all ready with backing, batting and the tops laid out--
just waiting for the basting fairies to show up--
cause someone talked  me into going shopping today instead of doing that 'chore'!!!

          ENJOY THE MOMENTS, DI
JUST '5' MORE DAYS--BEFORE IT IS STUFFING DAY---
SO WE WILL LET THIS 'TURKEY' HAVE HIS FUN!!!

OH YES--I HAVE --

been working-
it is just I am slow these days--it seems--
will have some fabric photos tomorrow I hope--
but in the meantime--
here is a couple knitting finishes--
first up is my 2nd pair of socks--
see they match--
now though for the "funny" part--
I just read that the newest 'fad' is unmatched socks--
oh give me a break--
I finally think I am getting caught up on something--
and I always learn that the 'train' has already moved on!!!!
this pair came out much better than the first as far as the shape goes--
I went down a size or so in needles and also discovered that I had not done the correct stitch on the heel for the other pair--oppps!!!

and another tiny baby sweater--
I do have another tiny sweater on the needles--
and have one fingerless mitten started on another set of needles--
and I did find the self stripping yarn on line and have 2 more colors in the mail!!
Who wants socks for Christmas????

Keep busy--working on those crafts--
Christmas is coming--quickly--!!!!

           ENJOY THE MOMENTS, DI
