The Flight of Time

Time flies and I'm not keeping up!  Once again I've been gently poked for not being up to date here, so let's see what I can do in the few minutes before bedtime.  :-)  So.  In no particular order......

Thanksgiving dinner was enjoyed by all.

Vacuuming is enjoyed by some more than others.  In fact, some of us are downright serious about it.   Have to cultivate that.  :-)

The Tramp and I treated ourselves to a show before that opportunity flew away.

The generations having fun at lunch.

Fun with vegetables at Sweet Tomatoes.

Trying my hand at repairing a sewing machine cabinet.  Just call me Tim!

The red mat on the kitchen floor is in front of Charlie's cage.  I made four of them out of flannel backed with the Babyville PUL diaper fabric.  It catches the mess and is washable.  Definitely better than the newspaper I was using.

Project Feederwatch has started for the season.  I've been playing with Photoshop and the Fancy Camera.  I have soooo much to learn!

Also learning to clean up vintage sewing machines.  A smelly messy job, best done outside on a strangely warm December day.

Finishing up the Christmas rush of t-shirt and memory quilt tops.

Celebrating ED's birthday in style.  (Wait a minute.  Wasn't I just the young mother??  Where did those years fly to?)

Making Charlie new foraging toys every day.  He's still learning to find the treats in them.  I now have a whole big bin of parrot toy parts gleaned from dollar stores and craft stores.

Another big one flew out the door.  Very handsome with it's purple accent.

Added the border to Mom's pretty king-sized quilt top.  It's now at the long-armer's.

More purple!  A double sided quilt this time.

Still dreaming of the day I can catch a photo of this flicker in flight, showing off the spectacular bright yellow feathers under it's wings and tail.

Despite how cute she looks, Maisy is in the dog house at the moment for endangering Charlie.  Grrrrrrr.  Don't worry.  I'm also beating myself up for letting my guard down.  :-(

A memory quilt top with lots of pockets and sparkly bits.

It only took a year but I finally dragged out and finished my Peanuts Christmas tree skirt. Yay!

I WON, I WON, I WON!   I won a set of "holiday blocks" at the quilt guild meeting tonight.  I'm so thrilled.  I'll be able to make the lap quilt in the picture.  The rest of the cutting table is cluttered with the remenants of last minute Christmas sewing.

Aaaccckkkk!  It'll be Wednesday before we know it!  Time needs to stop flying!!!!
