In the Mood to SEW!!

Oh, yeah, BIG time! I've been totally addicted to my sewing machine for the past week or so. I'm still taking pictures each day for my December Daily album, and I'll post pics of my progress on that soon. But mainly I've been staying away from the computer, and....sewing! I finished the baby quilts I started last summer (!) and gave them to B & K when we babysat them last night. Don't they look so thrilled with their new blankies?!!

I already have the materials I need to make Christmas gifts for the kids' teachers, and I've been finding all kinds of cool fabrics while out thrifting for yet another exciting sewing project. I'm so freakin' stoked, I just can't wait to show off the finished products!

I haven't totally abandoned scrappin', of course. I don't think I have it in me to take a break from that! Here's the page I did for the current challenge over at Lotus Paperie:

If you haven't gone over there to check out their challenges yet....well, why on earth NOT?? First, let me know so I can smack you upside the head with a rubber hose. Then, get on over there and participate! There are PRIZES to be won, people! Prizes!! Plus, they have some really awesome kits for sale in their etsy shop....and I just happen to have a Lotus Paperie coffee mug on my Christmas wish list (located in the sidebar for your convenience, lol)!

Okay, I'll try to be less scarce now that I've temporarily kicked my winter funk. Stupid winter already giving me the blues and it's not even officially arrived yet! Stay tuned........hope you had a wonderful weekend! :)

Those blankets are adorable! Maybe if you get started now... you'll have one finished in time for my baby?! How about browns/tans/creams, since we don't know yet if it'll be a boy or a girl?
