Sunny Saturday..and other random stuff...

It's only 3:30 here, but feels like it should be at least 7 p.m. Santa's helpers brought supper last evening, and helped set up my Christmas tree. It goes up fast! Note the early "stocking stuffer"... just when it was needed! The tree is fiber optic, from a few years back. It's pretty in the dark, but looks bare in this picture...hmmm?
This is one of Jean's quilt that she was getting rid of last year. It's a panel that she hand quilted for the nursing home's bulletin board. They no longer wanted it, and I adopted it. Looks good on the wall behind my table. And adds some much needed color on these white walls!
Remember these little guys? It's been a few years since I shared this pattern, directions and an old white beard. Did you get one?? Maybe I should a few of these to my "kinda bare" tree.
This quilt(which if fully finished!) was a BOM from my guild way back when. I'm still undecided about doing the new QuiltVille mystery, which is a similar colorway. If I just didn't have sooo many UFOs! But my head keeps playing with the idea of doing it...
and using this fabric as my inspiration. Since I do have fabrics all picked out, I'd just be substituting out one color. Can you guess which one??

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas (you are singing along, right) :) Love those little Santas/Trees. I don't remember those. I may have to try to figure out how to make one. :) Woman, do not worry about those UFO's!!! Jump right into to Quiltville's mystery quilt. There really are no quilt police. :) Hugs

I was going to do the mystery however changed my mind. I want to do more quilts for charity and I want to do soscrappy's rainbow challenge in the new year. Plus I truly can't buy anymore material right now with having to buy a new car.

How nice to have elves to help with Christmas! Love your little Santas. Starting a new project is always so interesting. Hope your decision is not too hard :)

Those fiber optic trees are so nice. I hear you about the short daylight hours. This time of year I usually feel like going to bed by 5pm.

Looks like you are enjoying the holiday season already. Working on UFOs is so virtuous, but starting a new quilt is a lot more fun!

oh yes! I have my little Santa thanks to you sending me a starter kit. I love him. I am thrilled to see your post and happy to hear you are inspired to make a new quilt..ufos can wait if you are feeling new inspiration! I can not guess which one..as I don't consider doing any of Bonnie's mysteries...I truly do not have the time and of course I am busy with other quilt projects as well...hugs

Glad at least SOMEONE is ready for Old Saint Nick! I just finished up my last college final exams and I definitely need to get in the Christmas spirit! Thanks for the inspiration!
