Make-A-List Monday

The Week of November 25, 2013
(in review)

1.  Choose a winner for the Blog Hop Party with Give Aways.

Patricia is the winner of the two charm packs.



Patricia wrote:  "Happy Thanksgiving!  Thanks for a great giveaway.  I'm a new follower."

Congratulations Patricia! 

 Patricia has been notified and these lovely charm packs will be off to the post office in the near future.


2.  Start working on the first clue for Bonnie Hunter's new online mystery



Here are a few of the blocks I have finished so far.  For the first clue we are making triangle in a square units in a blue/neutral colorway and a blue/orange colorway.  I am doing the smaller quilt so I  will need 96 blue/orange units and 92 blue/neutral units.

 I haven't finished all of the units for this clue yet, but hopefully they will be done before the next clue is released on Friday.


3.  Finish writing the Show & Tell Tuesday posts that were unfinished last week.

I was able to finish eleven Show & Tell Tuesday posts. 

 Watch for them over the next few months.


4.  Finish the Make It Snappy scarves started last week.

My scarves are almost done.  I will post pictures as soon as they are all complete.

5.  Work on two more Wildflower Rhapsody blocks.


I have now finished twelve blocks for this quilt.

6.  Continue to work through my Flylady inspired Christmas Control Journal.

I did a lot of decorating this weekend for Christmas and
 I baked quite a few chocolate chip and snicker-doodle cookies.

Yum, Yum!!

 Christmas Hexie Quilt. 

I was able to add a handful of hexies this week.

the Prayer Shawl Ministry at St. David the King Church.

Just a little progress.

16.  Spend Thanksgiving at my dear in-law's house with one of my children, my DD Shea.  My two sons will be on opposite coasts...Kyle in Boston and JT in California.  I will miss you both, as well as Heather and Ryder terribly, but I am sooooo thankful to have you in my life.  


Kyle, Heather and Ryder had a great time in Boston visiting Heather's relatives.

JT and Kaela traveled to California to visit Kaela's family.

They enjoyed a wine tour in the Napa Valley.



This is the redwood in Kaela's front yard.
