I have been busy posting some pretties on ETSY.  I bought a bolt of fabric with beautiful Christmas cat pic on it in pillow squares.  I was working at Hancocks Fabric at the time, and was stocking the Christmas fabric we had just received. And here was this bolt of cats with such beautiful snowy Christmas card scenes. I bought the entire bolt. That fabric was never put on the shelf.  I have made a couple of lap quilts 45 x 60 inches, and a few pillows. Still have at least 7-8 yards left.  Just don't sew as much as I used to. Or don't have time. Don't know, maybe just lazy. After nearly 40 years of working a full time job, usually putting in a huge garden and sewing day and night, weekends and holidays getting ready to another craft show, I just don't have the get up and go to 'git'er dun' like the guy on tv keeps saying. I have all these ideas floating around in my head, drifting in and out. Just don't get that much accomplished.  These days I think I had rather read a book. The down side is I keep feeling like I am leaving things undone. And time is slipping away.  Three weeks and Christmas will be over for another year.  Time just flies and never slows down for anything. Even to let you draw a breath.
Anyway here are my latest entries for you to take a look at.

The top cat always tugged at my heart, with him (or her) outside in the cold and looking in.  The second one reminded me of some of our cats in the past, curled up dreaming of how much trouble they could get into, playing in the Christmas tree. That's another story for closer to Christmas.
I always loved the old world Santa's.  Mother fell in love with the Angels.  I bought a 100 years of the Angels.  We made quilt, purses, wall hanging, and pillows with that fabric patter. I think I still have about 25 or 30 yards left. So so pretty.
Well that is all for today.
May your days be filled with Spirit of Christmas and celebrating the One who's birthday it is.

I love all the pillows you've made Mary. They're just beautiful. And I know the feeling of wanting to do something and just not getting around to it. I do that a lot!!
