a mish-mash of stuff....

Isn't the chicken cute? One of my guild members brought a dozen or so for show-n-tell....that turned into a show-n-sell... I think all were sold in minutes... I've seen these everywhere, but never caught the bug until Monday... I love the fabric and she is now roosting next to my sewing machine..


Judy L. over at Patchwork Times had a bit of contest last week. She asked us to link to something we were making for Christmas gifts this year. I linked to my hot chocolate recipe that I give to the maillady and others... and I won those beautiful fabrics hanging over my banister...
They are 10 inch strips. Each strip has 4 different gradations of each color AND there is two strips of each color. I haven't decided what I will do with them so all ideas are welcome. If you haven't ever checked out Judy's blog, do... She is a prolific poster..with recipes, mystery quilts, chickens and tons of talk.

And my grocery order came... from Canton Village Grocers... aren't they nice? I wish I could play with them this weekend...but I can't...I've got to leave this afternoon for that "other house"...


And a bit of a sneak peak of what I worked on one day this past week... It's a Christmas gift...

anyone else having problems uploading photos since blogger updated? I had to go back and use the old editor and I really kind of like the new editor more...

Congratulations on the fabric win Nancy! It's beautiful. I would think about something from City Quilts by Cherry House.

Beautiful fabrics - an Around the World or similar quilt would show off the rainbow effect of the fabrics.

I had a brief period of trouble with uploading photos with the new blogger editor (it wouldn't), but now it is all better, and I love being able to upload multiple pictures at once.
