Quietly Plugging Away

Almost a month since my last post. Where does the time go? I've been busy trying to get my Christmas gifts finished. Not sure that is going so well, but I'm still trying.
I have a quilt that I'm making for my mom this year. It's very whimsical. It involves getting all the handprints of all her grandchildren and great grandchildren. I should have the last four the beginning of this week, then it's full steam ahead. I have 8 blocks finished, just four more to do. Here's a sneak peek:

When I went on our local Shop Hop, I found a wonderful book "Tis The Season" by Jeanne Large and Shelley Wicks. There are at least four projects in this book that I want to make. I have one almost finished. I just need to do the last border and add all the applique (fusible for me). This project is called To All a Good Night. So very very cute. I think I'll go back to making a list. I accomplished so much more with that in hand.

On a happy note, my daughter will be home Tuesday. Only two more finals next week, and she can take a break!
