Happy Holidays....Happy Holidays....

Please do not adjust your sets. Yes, I know that we are heading into Thanksgiving weekend, but I have jumped ahead a season, just for a little bit. There's a perfectly good reason though.














The Official Cookie Tester was travelling for work for most of this week so I decided that I could lay claim to the dining room table since there was no demand for three square meals a day for a few days. I brought my machine and the blocks for the holiday table toppers that I had cut out a while ago up from the sewing cave and have enjoyed sewing with a view to the outdoors. Its been a beautiful week, so that was a bonus.







I just plunked everything into the middle of my tiny pumpkins and gourds and had at it. The makings for three toppers will become two square and a long version (I think that one might need a border because it's quite narrow). The last square topper is almostt finish and I want to do that before I take my machine back downstairs, so despite hubby's return I have still laid claim to the table.....M

I used to sew in the dining room and then we changed our home office to a sewing room. Now I sew there. My husband is happy there is no longer fabric in the dining room

Marie, I absolutely love those table toppers - great idea to make them square and rectangular!! Isn't it a treat to sew with a view.

I used to sew in the dining room too (just how many of us do that) but since moving I have been able to claim a little space or myself. But I love this Christmas piece. I was also intrigued by your use of a paper punch or making hexie shapes. What a good idea. Love all your work.

You've been using lots of fun Christmas fabrics. I do exactly the same thing when I'm alone for a few days. It's nice on occasions to spread out a little more and get some big projects done.
