Strawberry Fields Forever

I really like how this is turning out.

Strawberry Fields 002

There are still sashing strips and cornerstones to go on – and the corners, of course, but I like where this one is going.

Sandra & Darren are having a Christmas Open House today so I spent yesterday baking to help them out a little.  They just came and picked everything up and that’s the way I like it – it’s all out of the house and the temptation is gone.

I have to work full time this week (moan, moan) so there probably won’t be a lot of progress made on the sewing front.  I still have Christmas shopping to do, haven’t wrapped a thing and so far the jury is still out on whether or not a tree is going up.

I laughed at Sandra’s Facebook status the other day:

3 cats + 2 trees = WORST IDEA EVER

Sounds like my little grandkitties haven’t been behaving themselves.  In fact, when I talked to her on Friday, she asked me if I wanted to adopt three cats – one that yawns on command.

Another gorgeous quilt Irene- your stash has such glorious fabrics- I love your choices.

I think Sandra's statement is indeed priceless- made us giggle.

The you tube piece is too cute..
Cats are indeed full of mischief.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
Warmest regards,

I went to some friends house once and they had a beautiful Scotch pine tree (live) in their living room. It was bare except for one decoration. One. I decided not to ask, but she noticed me looking at it and said, simply, "Cats."

I love that batik quilt! Beautiful, and the colors really POP!
