I can't believe I let so many Sunday's slip by without my weekly post. This time of year I swear the clock moves faster and faster. I really need to learn to plan better.

Nothing much to show this week. I did catch up to my Vignette project just in time for the new magazine to arrive. The next step is half of the center. I think I am going to wait for the next issue to come out before starting this one. I think it may be easier to do the center as one piece.
The next project I worked on is my "Start Spangled Celebration".   I am trying to keep up with this as the kits arrive in the mail.   I made a big boo boo when I fused the liberty letters.  I should have placed them closer to each other so they wouldn't overlap on the heart.  
Yesterday Nancy and Beth came over and we celebrated Christmas by going out to eat Mexican food and coming back to my house for a gift exchange.   I need to take better pictures of all the wonderful things I received from my special friends.  

Beth made Nancy and I each a mini.   A Snowman for Nancy
 and a great little CW mini for me.  She even personalized it making it more special.

She also added some chocolate kisses in the bag and this cute little baby Christmas Annie.  Isn't she adorable.   I have never been into dolls but these cuties are too cute.  Nicole makes them if you feel the need for your very own.  The cute little kitty watch was from Nancy.  She had all kinds of cute items in the bag she made us.   Wait till you see this bag!!
It is made from Dear Jane chapter fabrics.  I really wish I would have taken better pictures of it.  It is incredible.  I can't wait to sport it to my next quilt class.   Big pockets inside, which of course were filled with goodies.  Of course I didn't take pictures of everything, Ugh!  I am challenged at that.  Just be assured that there were goodies in there that were fabulous.

I forgot to take pics of the gifts I got for the girls.  Ooops.   

I also got a very special gift from someone special that I need to take pictures of before the big reveal.  I have to check with her first to see if it is ok to share.  I was floored when I opened my mail this past week.

I hope you all have a very Blessed Christmas.   I have big plans for UFO busting in the New Year.  I will be sure to post all about it before the first of the month.   Until then, big hugs from me.
