Sidetracked but back on it now!!

Well, I hit the farmer's market this morning for some peaches, picked my daughter up from work and then my oldest daughter and her hub arrived. So much for any sewing! It is now 8:30 and I am just STARTING my Christmas quiltalong. I hope you stop by tomorrow to see what I get done! I will continue to post updates tonight.

Just so ya don't think I sat around all day, here is what kept me busy for a good part of the afternoon:

I put up 9 quarts of peaches and 7 half pints of peach jam. Does my kitchen smell NUMMY!!

Here is another one of the surprise packages:

Hmm..looks interesting. Now let's take them out:

Now THESE look vintage to me. There are 11 blocks with 4 more center pieces cut. They measure anywhere from 8 1/2 in to 9 in. Hmm..might have to square these up a bit! They also are all handstitched..and well done, I might add. I LIKE these ones. No ideas on what to do with them yet, but that's okay.

Now..FINALLY off to stitching!


  1. They look as though they were going to be signature blocks to me. I am so enjoying your Christmas packages that you are opening and showing us, thank you.

  2. Oh my goodness! My mouth is watering just looking at them.
