Spinning Plates

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  Right now I have several things happening in my house- painting, electrical work, new doors going in... and I am not too proud to admit that I might have bitten off a little more than I can chew.  My goal was to get certain things finished in the house before family comes to visit for Christmas and it looks like it is going to actually happen, but it just might make me crazy first.  And, though I have a plan, I haven't purchased or wrapped a single gift yet, and I'm usually finished with everything before December 1st.  I did manage to get my Christmas tree put up so at least there's that, and I've (mostly) kept the puppy from eating it, so...winning there too. (just ignore the fact that I took the photo before the tree skirt was on, ha!)

Last week's party was so great.  I just love browsing through all of your amazingness, especially when I'm missing my own sewing machine so much.  This awesome quilt is by Jayne at Twiggy and Opal-

This modern masterpiece is by Sophie at Luna Lovequilts-

This fantastic quilt is by Sew Preeti Quilts-

And I love this one by heARTS Creations-

Okay friends!  Let's link up!

*Next week, December 18th is my wedding anniversary, and then the following two weeks are Christmas Day, and New Years Day, so NTT will be taking a break.  I'll see you all in 2020!

1You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.  
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. I can't imagine adding more stress to the holidays by including a bit of home repairs to the mix!! You crazy?!! As long as you can relax and enjoy it with family in the end will make it worth it!

  2. Your tree is beautiful. Hang in there. What gets done or not done won't define your time spent with the people you love. Merry Christmas.

  3. Your tree looks great. Things will fall into place. Don't stress.

  4. What a pretty tree. Don't feel badly, I am also behind on gifts and wrapping them. ;Betting other people are as well. Happy holidays to you and your family.

  5. I went to a party last night and the hostess said that just an hour before people started to arrive, her husband had the air compressor out and was nailing down the last bits of their new floor. (Yikes!) We all bite off more than we can chew now and then! Best wishes on your home projects! : )

  6. Thank you Kelly for hosting NTT and sharing my quilt!
