An added bonus is the sewing time my mom and I are spending together. We've both been working on the Winter Wonderland quilt throughout the year. She's almost finished making all of her pieced blocks while I just got started on mine today. So far I've completed 2 of the larger blocks.

In between working on this quilt, I'm also working on a Christmas Dresden Plate table runner and wall hanging. I'm using the fabric Nature's Gift by Deb Strain for both of them. I assembled the first plate today. It's 15" across...

However, today we're off to do some school shopping. It's a tax free weekend here and my niece and nephew need some new school clothes! I remember how much fun I had picking out clothes and school supplies when I was their age. I was always anxious for school to start (and end).
My experience shows that those who plant trouble and cultivate evil will harvest the same.
