NTT- Holiday Lights

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all.  I've been doing more secret sewing this week, along with lots of Christmas shopping and decorating- including our outside lights (which was a full weekend affair)!

We like to do the lights when we have a nice weekend, and when we have the time.  The weather obviously gets colder as November goes on, but it also has a tendency to be more rainy too.  Last weekend was breezy and sunny with temps in the mid-sixties, so we jumped on it. We have just a little more to do, and then they'll be all ready to turn on Thanksgiving night.  

With all of the secret book sewing, secret gift sewing, and holiday hubbub, I'm sad to say that there really hasn't been time for any non-secret sewing.  So, let's just jump right into the highlights from last week's party!  This awesomely scrappy quilt is by Sandra at mmm quilts-

DonnaleeQ shared this amazing quilt-

Jan at The Colorful Fabriholic shared this fun Christmas tree wall hanging, with the link to the tutorial!

And Leanne at Devoted Quilter showed off this temperature quilt stunner.  Definitely check out her post to see more detail shots of that quilting!
