Did you have a good weekend? Hope your Thanksgiving was a good one! We ended up staying home Dear Hubby was not feeling good at all - he has an upper respiratory infection.
I had a very productive weekend -- I decided to work on Bonnie from Quiltville newest mystery Easy Street -- here are the fabrics I picked out -- she is using gray where I am using the yellow -- I like a little cheery quilt and I am pink instead of torquoise. I think I will be happy with this quilt, I love all my fabrics.
Here is part of part 1 -- we need 192 4 patches and I have almost 100 done and the strips sewn together for the additional 4 patches I need to make. -- I like it so far -- we get a new clue every Friday -- should be fun!
I did alot of decorating -- and cleaning -- here is my little gingerbread house village -- my mom and I made the 2 on the ends -- they are unfinshed bird houses -- she painted them and we glue on all the decorations. I have added some other items like the cone trees - and I need to make a runner for it to be on.
Here is my gingerbread tree -- it is a 4 foot tree and it is in the dining room -- full of gingerbread people -- I just love it.
Here is my Christmas Village this is just the center of it, I could not get a good photo of the entire village -- it is in our entry way. I just love looking at it and making my story -- this year there are 2 ladies on a bench quilting outside the quilt shop -- such a story I can create about them. It is nice to use your imagination.
I did go shopping at 4:30 on Black Friday -- I made several stops and got everything on my list and saved so much money -- here is my best deal $47.99 for 82 piece Onieda silverware set at Kohls -- they say it would sell for $159.99 -- I don't really think so -- but not only did I get the great price, I got $5 off with a coupon and 15% off with another coupon and I am so happy with it -- our silverware really has become so mismatched over the years and this looks so nice in my clean drawer!
And I decided to make some stocking stuffer type items, these are decorated Hersey Bars -- I saw something like it on Pinterest. So I got these done this afternoon.
Tomorrow it is back to work - next 4 day weekend in 4 weeks!
