Got Ready For Two Holidays in One Week

That's what I did the past couple of days...got ready for two holidays...I did pillowcases for Hampton and Camden for Halloween (that will be here before we blink three times)
and I finished a Schnibble that I think it was the Schnibble of the Month back in February...I.S.T.H....I'm a little slow...but I'm ready for Valentine's Day 2013.  I got this back from the quilter a long while ago
...why didn't I just do the binding then?  I guess my thought was that I really didn't need Valentine's Day any time soon...I'm happy it's done and ready for the holiday.

I have a bunch of charm squares left and a couple of larger pieces of this fabric left...if anyone would like these  pieces leave me a comment...if there's more than one of you I'll draw for a winner.  I'll leave it open until Tuesday morning at 9 EDT.

Now you've probably heard that we're having a little bit of wind and wet weather from Tropical Storm Isaac...here's how concerned the boys are...

Other people's scraps are always so much fun!

What cute projects. I'm sure that binding will get done, one cold, winter evening.

I'm always need of pink leftovers. I hope the big storms passes by without any damage for you!

Even though I've been quilting for almost 30 years, I don't have much of a stash (I buy for specific projects), so I would love to have your scraps!

Glad that Isaac isn't giving you too much trouble.

Hi Carol, I love your holiday projects, especially the Valentine one. It is so gorgeous and fun and cheerful at the same time!!! I am in serious need of reds and pinks in my stash, but I was a bit late on the uptake again, LOL. However, I was eating a delicious supper of Tilapia, Corn on the cob, sliced Avocados and a fresh sliced tomato picked from our garden just before dinner, so I didn't see your post until just now. OH, also, I love the picture of 'the boys', LOL. Way cute! Now I'm headed out to the deck to do a bit of stitchery on my Tis the Season Christmas Quilt and watch the hummingbirds while I visit with hubby. Have a wonderful evening, stay safe and dry my sweet friend. Big Hugs....

Cheryl said...

I think the boys have a lot to teach us about dealing with storms in general. LOL. Yes, I'd love to be part of the drawing. Heaven knows I'm low on fabric with all of the finishes going on here lately . . . ahem. Thanks for sharing. Your new quilt is lovely and quite inspiring.

Diane said...

I don't need the fabric, but wanted to tell you how pretty your Valentine's schnibble is. Two holidays in one week is nothing to be sneezed at!

You are ahead of the game, ready for Valentine's Day. :-)

Bonnie said...

Would love to be entered for a chance to win the leftovers. I have a small stash and always look for ways to make it larger. Love the pic of the boys. We had the "girls" for a number of years and your boys remind me of them.

Loris said...

Love your Valentine quilt! It's lovely fabrics and quilting too.
The boys must be aware that you will look out for them. No need for the handsome princes to worry. They sure are beautiful!

Janet O. said...

Doesn't it feel good to be "ahead" of the game on these holidays? Very cute stuff! : )

Angie said...

The pillowcases are so fun for the little ones. :) And look at those furbabies chillin'---I love it! :)
