It's Crunch time!!!

Announcing the winner of the extra fabric postcard ... Cheryl in Nebraska. Hip hip hooray!

I have no cute pets so I put names on a paper and have my DH draw one. The first time I had him do this - he was afraid it was a "honey-do" list!!! Thanks to everyone for their comments.

I finished my wall quilt for my mom Friday! Two projects down, 3 to go ... This is a Thimbleberries panel - isn't it cute! I hand quilted it - I know - what was I thinking??? Perhaps that I had more time than I did ... But it turned out very nice and it goes in the mail tomorrow. It will look nice with my mom's snowmen collection.

Yesterday I was able to buy the only tricycle in town! And I'm not kidding - it wasn't the only type of trike - it was physically the ONLY TRIKE for under $159 for sale in Newport. Sometimes small towns are a little TOO small! And now that we're looking at it - it looks a little too small itself! We're having a debate - I think Miss P is little enough (27 months) that we can put her on it for size and she won't remember on Christmas day that she's seen it before ... DH doesn't think so. What do you think?

Last night we went to the lighted boat parade in the harbor. It was really cute - but unfortunately during the Big 12 playoff game ... So we watched the first circle around and then picked up fish and chips for dinner and home to football. I burned the '11 o'clock' oil last night on Miss P's big girl quilt - I can tell today!
Don't hyperventilate when you look at your 'to do' list!!! BREATHE!

I'm not hyperventilating on my Christmas To Do List. I don't have one except for a dress for DIL and PJ pants for DH. I have no clue what I'm doing for the rest of the family. All of my quilty swap packages are mailed so I don't have any of those to worry about.

Miss P looks adorable holding Mr M. She will make a great mommy someday.

What a great quilt for your mom. I need a daughter. =) Great deal on the trike - I think if you put her on it, she'll want to stay on it. A lighted boat parade sounds delightful. I love hearing about what other people do.
