Christmas Sewing

Happy to say I`m sewing again. I try to do an hour a morning after the treadmill. Beautiful weather, a little crispy in the morning. Perfect Fall desert weather.
I started a few scrappy little projects for gifts like these little mug rugs. The lion and wiseman prints were won in a Giveaway last year. The green fabric to right is Debbie Mumm.

More of the Christmas fabric I won including the gingerbread print.

This is a nine patch block for a scrappy table runner.

I am busy cleaning up flower beds, grooming dogs and getting ready for Thanksgiving. My son and daughter in law will cook the turkey while his dad I make dressing and pies. It`s going to be a great holiday! I am blessed to have this beautiful family. Friends from Iowa have been visiting . It`s been a great month.

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Sounds like a wonderful time with family (and turkey)!

    Nice Christmas quilting.

  2. I need to get sewing again too, just been so busy with life and all but winter is coming and that's a good stay inside and be warm kinda projects! Love the fabrics, still addicted!!

  3. I'm getting in a bit of sewing but not much blogging Cathy! Like you I'm working on getting ready for the holiday coming up. Our son will bring the turkey so I'm planning and buying for the other stuff. blessings, marlene

  4. Very cool nine the fabric!

  5. Hi Cathy, thank you so much for your comments on my blog; fellow bloggers like you are the reason I keep going! Sad to hear your hubby is so unwell; we wives all have our crosses to bear, don't we...
    I've just been cruising through your recent blog posts, and enjoying the photos of the landscape. When I look back on my trips to the USA and think about all the places we went to, I think Arizona was one of our favorite states by virtue of the stunning unspoilt beauty. Lucky you to be living there :-)

  6. Cathy, I enjoy your photos and wish I'd been there to go Kona shopping with you! My favorite solids goto is Kona.
    Enjoy your son's family over the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving!


I appreciate your comments, so don`t be shy.
