For many things... healthy, family, friends... and the fact that my turkey turned out great and I shouldn't be accidentally poisoning anyone! (side note: I never have poisoned anyone, however I have gotten a nasty case of food poisoning from turkey, so I think any Turkey day that goes by without that is a plus!)
Happy Thanksgiving, Blogland!!!

I have a binding to sew onto a fleece panel and I'll be DONE with Christmas! Feels sooo good to be so close.
This last gift (no pics yet) will be for my father-in-law. It's a 2 yd panel of grey fleece, quilted for texture. Even though I got the fleece pieces to practice on, I really like the sculptural effect it gives!

* Bind sister's lap quilt
* Make yellow/blue and Christmas tree blocks for swap, prepare for mailing
* Assemble lap quilt top for FIL's Christmas pressie
* Read up on and find vids for sewing pantograph patterns... maybe practice on FIL's quilt top!
Ok... looks like enough!

All this sucker needs is binding!
And, it's finished- well, the quilting part at least!- 2 weeks before my self imposed mailing deadline.... ahhhh!
And what demands even more 'ahhhh'? The fact that I only have ONE more Christmas present to finish... another lap quilt!

Ok, I'm not yet... not as of today, but tomorrow is the day! I WILL SEW TOMORROW! Something... anything!
I have one lap quilt that needs ONE border in order to be a top and get loaded and quilted. I could go super simple, or I could go a little less simple. I have a few ideas in my head though, so the goal tomorrow is to get that border done and get that sucker loaded up on Nora's frame. (Nora is my purple FunQuilter- she and I get along well!)
I also have a few stacks of ooooold swap blocks that will be my last Christmas gift for the year. The FIL will be getting a lap quilt to keep in his truck when he's out on the road. I haven't decided yet which stack of blocks will be his, but maybe while I'm finishing up the other top tomorrow, I can figure that out as well.
But... TOMORROW I will quilt, or sew something quilt related- I promise myself!

The above lap quilt is done (and really not quite so wonky, but I was too lazy to de-wrinkle it before picture time). This is another of the Christmas presents done, and ready to be shipped with a few of the others- well, they'll be ready to ship once one more lap quilt is done!
