Sewing and blog hopping ... what have you been up to?

Well, since last Thursday I emptied three bedrooms for the carpet cleaners on Friday and then Saturday spent refilling same rooms and on Sunday spent planting eleven blue spruce trees, I feel pretty darn fortunate to have completed this:

Minus the ric-rac, which I'm waiting for the postman to deliver, I finished this little lovely today.  I used a portion of Whimsical's Pumpkin and Spice panel and the pattern from the book titled the same to create this wallhanging which is about 30 by 19 inches.  Since I don't have time to make a Thanksgiving tablerunner for dinner next week, this may be my table decoration :o)  What say you?

I am now off to read a few more blogs, make a couple more comments ... have you all been visiting the Mistletoe Make & Bake blog hop this week?  SEW totally worth the effort!!!!  There's a grand prize at the end of the week, but just for visiting each blog, you get delicious recipes and each day has a different designer which generously provides a free pattern.  Gotta go take a look!  (see the button on the righthand column of my blog)

OH ... and last week's 100 Blocks, Vol. 2 blog tour ... what a kick!  I actually won a copy of the magazine and a pattern from Vickie at Spun Sugar Quilts.  How cool is that ?!?!?!    All that just for commenting and reading.  Truly blessed is what I am :o)

Well, I best be getting my blessed butt moving ... I have Secret Santa present to get moving on, a birthday present to put together and a really cool Christmas ornament exchange I need to get in the mail before December 1st.  Did I mention Chirstmas presents for my family .... hahahahahaha  ... how many days before Christmas :o) ....  I am quilter, hear me stitch!

 Quiltastic wishes and warm squishy hugs!!
