Design Wall Monday - 11/23/15

Sew...I've finished bazaar season and I've finally finished some custom orders, which brings me to....full scale Christmas gift making season!! Some of the giftees read my blog so I have to be pretty careful what I post. I can't even share hexie photos today since I only spent about 30 minutes on them this weekend. Can you imagine??!!

This is the best I can share w/out giving away what I was making yesterday! Only a few more to make.

My 'hood is getting their holiday decorations up while the weather holds. I have two favorites that really mean the Holidays are closing in - I'll try to get a photo of the other house another day.

Taken on an early morning/pre-dawn walk last week.

Kenny lives around the corner from my house but this pine tree is tall enough that I can easily see it from any window in my house. I just love the flicker of white lights as the pine boughs move.

Someone at Walmart was having a good time with the pop display. The tree and background are recessed compared to the candy canes. I just now noticed the price - darn, missed my chance. While trying to get this photo I did find some cute Captain America and Hulk banks for my two fav nephews. They were in with the mens clothes which is a silly place for banks.

And last but not least  - look what greeted me this morning!! We were told to expect up to 12 inches of lake effect - I knew that wouldn't happen no matter how much hype there was. This was the perfect amount to glisten as the sun rose and now it's all  melted away.

It was a brisk 17F wind chill, which I found invigorating, but I was a little leery of the slippery snow on the sidewalks so my pace was off today. I promptly made a phone call to Mrs Clause and asked for yaktrax for Christmas. I wonder if she will delivery early?

Feline Friday = 11/20/15

Hey, Zorro!
Momma just gave me some fresh dried 'nip!

This stuff is fantastic, you gotta try it!
Anyone have any cat treats?

Oh, the shame of being a 'nip-head...

HeLP for Hexie-aholics - 11/171/15

Welcome to another monthly edition of Hexie Linky Party!!!!

What have you been working on? I do hope you'll share your projects whether past, present or future :)

I'm still in mash-mash-hexie mode while I work on class samples and holiday gifts. I just grab something that fits in a small to-go bag and I'm happy to keep my fingers busy while I'm out and about. I know I'll get back to a more regular schedule after Thanksgiving next week so I don't mind a few diversions.

I do have a mini-trunk show for a fundraiser tea party in early December (they requested only finished projects plus a couple WIPs to show process) so my plan for Black Friday is not to shop but finish the 3 doll quilts that need quilting and binding. Let's hope the quilting idea fairies are generous!
