That's a Wrap and NTT

 Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends.  I had my nose to the grindstone all week and officially submitted my manuscript and quilts to my publisher this afternoon!  It feels amazing to have that huge weight lifted (and it will feel even better when my quilts actually arrive at their destination).  There will be smaller deadlines I'll need to meet over the course of the next several months, but compared to this hurdle they're no big deal- and they won't come until after the holidays, which is a good thing considering how many other things like to take up residence in my brain this time of year.

So, tons of progress happened here this week, but none of it shareable.  Instead, take a look at some of the other awesomeness shared last week.  Anne-Marie @ Stories From the Sewing Room linked up this beauty (and several others in her post!)-

This teeny tiny (6") marvel is by Jayne at Twiggy and Opal-

Paige at Quilted Blooms linked up this super cool quilt.  What a cool design!

And The Joyful Quilter shared this adorably tiny pumpkin (the whole thing only measures 6.5" square!)-

Can you believe it's already October?  On one hand, it feels like it has been the year 2020 for 17,286 days, but on the other, it seems like it can't possibly be holiday time yet.  Pandemic time is weird.  I don't care though because I am here for it.  Bring on ALL the holiday joy!  

Okay y'all!  Let's do this thing.  Show me what you've been working on!

*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!  :)
