I've been doing a little of this in the evenings.......

Cutting a little of that during the daytime........
                                    
Putting a few machine stitches in this when I can.....
Keeping up with Bonnie's mystery quilt..................
                              

The first day of Advent arrived on Sunday. Time to put a few projects away until January and focus on celebrating the birth of our Saviour.

  4. You've got a nice mix going. You can make good use of your time by having a bit of machine work..and hand work going on at the same time? :)

  6. So much progress; I am envious! Love the candles in the canning jars, too!
    I am in complete agreement about "the reason for the season". I've become a Scrooge in the last few years - it's not about the presents!

  12. How do you get so much done???
    Your candles reminded me to dig mine out....I put them outside when I know we are getting company. They look welcoming when it is snowing. :)

  16. You look like an organized multi-tasker. Everything neatly arranged, progressing slowly, making progress in little steps, using variety to keep from being bored.
    You're my hero(ine). Wish I could keep my things half that organized.

    Season's greetings and blessings, Lori.

    I love the Advent season, don't you? Wishing more people would concentrate on the birth of our Savior.
    Be blessed this Holiday season.

  21. Me, too. A little of everything but nothing finished. Not that you aren't finishing, I meant I'm not finishing.

    Love the idea of mason jars for the advent candles. I've got to get out of my box more.

  22. Fantastic quilty fun! I simply must get my handwork in order....

  23. You changed your header quilt again! Is this an antique? It looks like the berries are worn or I wouldn't ask. It also looks like you've been really busy. Nice work!

  24. You are having fun and it shows!
    All your projects look great!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What are you doing with those bright reds and white polka dots? Those look like so much fun!

  26. Sounds like you enjoy yourself! And yes, time to Celebrate the birth of Jesus is much more important than just a few stitches...

  27. Oh I love the candles in the jar, what a great quilt behind it. I just got caught up on your blog, you are busy. Yes, I'm doing the same, a little of this and that. I'm cutting for Bonnies last years mystery and will spend this year building up the scrap bins for this one. It's looking so good! Your btct is moving right along, I'm working on #5

  30. Your Cheri's quilt looks great. Mine will have to wait until the new year. And your keeping up with Bonnie's quilt, I'm already one step behind.
