Packages from home

There is someone I know that recently got back from Iraq and said how much it meant to him and his fellow soldiers to get packages. There is a group called Packages from Home that is sending care packages to military members. I encourage all of you to donate to this group. My small quilt group will be making this a service project and hopefully will be able to put together a twin sized quilt to send with the care package.

Cooler Weather

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We had a nice time here, our favorite Aunt was in town from Arkansas and her and I spent several very enjoyable hours quilting. We made a very cute wallhanging that was simple but looks very festive. We were able to make two of them out of my stash and I am planning on making a couple more to give as gifts. I also made two very cute santa pillowcases, one for my Aunt and one for my son.

The weater has finally started to cool down here. This morning when I took my son for his first dentist appointment it was in the 60's. The dentist was pretty cool actually, lots of entertainment for the kids plus prizes when we left.

I still haven't been getting much done lately, but have decided that it is mostly because I have been so busy. For example this post has taken me all day to write. I have more that I want to write, but I have a crying baby that I need to convince to go to bed. More later...
