I'm having a block party and you're invited! We might do some knitting too. And while you're here, we might try some new food recipes.

17 More Days
I'm making some progress with Christmas gifts... presenting one of my mouse in hammock ornaments..
I am working on a grey mouse now. It's so fun picking out fabric for the blanket, pillow, and night cap. I think Mr. Mouse needs a Mrs. Mouse! Maybe instead of a night cap, a little lace cap would suit Mrs. Mouse. Hmmm...
Also, the coin quilts for my daughters are coming along nicely. This picture shows only part of the quilts. I have 3 rows of pieced fabric in each quilt. As you can see, my girls have very different color preferences. I love being able to play around with both color schemes. Also, it's been great using a lot of my fabric stash! This picture on flickr inspired me to try a coin quilt.
My latest Pyrex find - Rosette! And I found the lid with it! Lids and saucers are usually nowhere to be found. I believe this pattern is from the 60's and was a promotional item. So pretty.
Wishing everyone sewing success and speed as we count down 17 days until Christmas!
