Seeing Stars

It is a week of stars - bright and unexpected ones and falling, shooting ones.  I won "Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol 2" during the blog tour.  I cannot wait to get my copy!  And I won the Simplicity Creative Group sponsor's choice  on Quilting Gallery for my "Christmas Village" wallhanging during the weekly paperpiecing theme - a side winder.

Falling stars - my SIL and I have been gazing the skies most nights watching the shooting stars.  Leonids meteor showers are from Nov. 10-21.  We are seeing about 6 a night and one night was spectacular.  Find Leo in the North Sky as that is were they are shooting from.

I'm wrapping up those little projects and can actually see my table.  A few more Mug Rugs and some Tea Wallets. 

 Binding on a x-stitch table topper and a very puffy baby quilt for my daughter to use in the car this winter.  New baby soon - so excited.  # 1 granson already is using his quillow I made him last year for snuggling in the car. 

 It's nice to have those car blankets during the winter - young and old, so fancy up that backseat with a quilt or two.  Even a few pillows using up those orphan blocks.

Still enjoying those old movies.  "The Swan" with Grace Kelly and Alec Quiness - "80 Day Around the World" with David Nivens.

Sewingly Yours,
