Scrapping ...

I can't believe it's almost Christmas, I just don't feel like I'm ready for the whole festive season yet. Heavens, I have barely started the shopping, and almost no quilted gifts - this is so unusual!! Amy only has two days of school left for the year, and Cameron has five. Soooo ... I thought I'd put together the traditional gift for their teachers - Seasonal mugs with mug mats. I hope they liked them!

I should probably put a few more together, you know, as 'justin presents' ... just in case ...

And because I just couldn't resist - I decided to dive into Bonnie's mystery project. I haven't made many projects that use a great number of my 1.5" strips, so I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to start.I decided to go with some brown in with the red and blue, I had to cut up some of the brown and red especially, but there were plenty of blue strings in there to use. I have three customer quilts I need to finish up before I can start working on step two, but hopefully by the end of the week I'll be up to date.

This weekend is sure to be a lot of fun, in one hour we're going to pick up the new kitten. Cheryl is going to have one too. The kids will definitely be entertained, and it'll be interesting to see how Holly deals with the new arrival. I'll share pictures as I have them! Have a great weekend! x o x

Good luck introducing the kitty to Holly. We had great fun getting our 3 used to each other. Our youngest was so naughty and kept wanting to play with the older 2 when all they wanted to do was sleep. I may pinch your idea for the Christmas gifts for my sons teachers - they are lovely !

What a great gift idea, they look so special. And I'm glad to see you're doing the mystery quilt, you don't want to feel left out, do you?
Post lots of kitty pictures, I love seeing other people's pets.

Looking forward to seeing the new kitty!
I wish I was starting some new project but not until I get a couple of the ones I'm working on back under way. They are not Works in Progress. They are Works Stagnating.

Kittens are so much fun!
I started the mystery too. 1 1/2" blocks are smaller than what I usually work with--but they're coming out pretty good.

I love the scrappiness of your colors for the mystery!

The teachers will love the mug sets.
