Christmas coming alive

Handmade by Heidi

The Friday night Sew-in results are here, but first have to give you a sneak peak at the fun material I got on Thursday night.....

I had sew much fun Thursday evening after dropping off daughter @ work choosing this material which I worked with last night during the sew-in.  It was just right to set the holiday mood.  SEW... I stuck in the favorite Christmas music by Lorie Line, oh, no first I changed into some comfy clothes (sweats) But then again maybe I hiked up the music first so I could hear it while I was changing and gathering my stuff...  Any way Christmas music played last night.  I have three fav.  Lorie Line (she is awesome, some day I may get to go to one of her concerts.  dream, dream, dream)  another fav. is Mannheim Steamroller and North Sound's Christmas Sleigh Ride.  Sew we got it all rounded up and the candle lit and turkeys on night watch.....

yes we had Christmas and Thanksgiving rolled into one night. I love the holidays.  and I can't wait 3 weeks and 6 days and my oldest will be home for the holidays.  This is the first she's been away living in dorm life ....  man I miss my baby.

sew I got the pattern out Thanks to Erin and quilting gallery's Christmas quilt along.  Erin submitted this adorable Christmas Angel quilt block for their 2011 Christmas Quilt along.  When I saw her I knew I needed to make her into a table top runner for my kitchen table.  I have angel place mats I use during Dec. and she'd be just the added thing.  Sew I'm making two and going to stick them together head to head for the center of my table.  Any way I had only a little over 2 hrs to work before hubby got home from work I had to work hard and furiously. 

work hard I did I thought I got alot accomplished.....

she's taking shape quite well. Sew that was what I accomplished during November's FNSI. 

Oh yes, did I mention that this is also standing in my Kitchen....

I picked this cute little tree up at the second hand on Thursday evening.  It is 4 ft. We have decided to down size from big 7 ft this year.  Sew now I have to put it in its place.  hehehehe I usually put up tree after Thanksgiving, unless my my mom comes then we put up the tree and have Christmas while she is here, but she isn't coming this year.  In fact, dd took Amtrak to Grandma's for Thanksgiving, it was closer than coming home (1 day train ride to 3 days).

What did you get accomplished??
