Since it is the holiday season, and my grocery store seems to have gone crazy trying to display the most holiday foods possible - I caved and picked up some nuts for the kids to crack. I got to use this pretty little Pyrex bowl a friend gave me (a set of 2 - with 1 smaller one). The kids seem to like the walnuts better than the hazelnuts and almonds, so I got them some more. The other day I walked into the kitchen to see them hammering them with a meat tenderizer and trying to squeeze them open with a lemon juicer. Hopefully from now on they'll just use the nutcracker.
And onto some sewing. I made this lined drawstring bag for my friend Angela. You may remember me mentioning something about a fabric diet and that if I bought fabric before I made 5 quilts, I would have to make her something. Well - I didn't get my 5 quilts done before I bought fabric, so this is what I made her. I love the scrappiness - I may have to make one for myself :)
A couple of bee blocks for Amber - in la beeda loca
A secret bee block . . . (thanks so much to colleen for the fabrics!)Colleen - la beeda loca. This one was hard. I will not be making a circle quilt ever.
For Jen - Bee Tweet. I love these blocks and I would love to make a similar quilt.
And last but not least - some ornaments for a family ornament exchange. I totally stole this idea from here. Sorry if that offends anyone. They were quick and easy and I didn't mind buying a few things for them.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
p.s. I've recently become addicted to instagram photos. If you're on there - look me up at leedledeedle. I'll try to get some photos together soon for a post.
