Before I get into the Christmas quiltalong, I wanted to share a few pics of my youngest, Hannah, from her senior ball last night: Hannah and Anthony looked great, didn't they?? The bottom picture is Hannah and her best friend, my "extra" daughter, Sophia. Very bittersweet for me. I am 48, my oldest child of my 6 will be 31 this year and Hannah is my baby at 18. This will be my very last prom. I don't mind my age, but I HATE my kids growing up!!!! Now for the quiltalong. The next part in the mystery has been revealed and I have 6 of the blocks made. Now, back to stitching to finish up the other 18 blocks!!

This Saturday is the Christmas quiltalong...yay!!! No clue what I am going to work on, but I still can't wait! lol I know I will be working on the next part of the quiltalong mystery. Sue has thrown us a challenge....play with our units and see if we can guess what comes next. Here are some of the ideas I came up with: I was too pooped to do the math to see if the units would work into blocks like these, so I am sure I am not even close. It was fun to play with them, though! I can't wait to see what Sue has up her sleeve for us!!! Hop on over to Sue's blog to see what everyone else has come up with with their units!!! Don't forget to join us on Saturday!!!!

Shellie came over yesterday for a sew date and I had a GREAT time! We started off with a little sewing, then spent wayyyy to much time at a quilt store. Fortunately we spent more time than money there! Shellie got some background fabric for a quilt she is working on and I bought another book. Then we went out to lunch and stuffed ourselves. Then, back to sewing.
