Wednesdays Sneak Up On Me!

Hey there, friends!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, and I'd like to apologize for missing last week's post.  The days just got away from me, and I didn't even realize I hadn't posted until last Friday evening.  This week has been super busy too, and I even finished a little quilt.  To be fair, this one was a joint effort.

For each of her great-grandchildren, my grandmother embroiders a quilt panel (or blocks), and then she passes them to me to turn it into a quilt.  I picked this one up at Thanksgiving and will bring it back finished at Christmas.  My youngest cousin is expecting her third child, and this one is for her!  I'm always in awe of my grandmother's beautiful handwork.

I'm also prepping for TWO Christmas parties this weekend.  Friday, we are hosting my husband's department for a party, and then we're hosting our Sunday School class on Saturday.  Each party will have about 30-35 people, so at this point, we're in full crazy party-prep mode.  Yesterday and today were all about the leaves (though there are obviously still plenty on the trees, so I feel like this is a losing battle).

After our two parties, things will not be slowing down.  My husband and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, and we're squeezing in a trip before we travel (again) to see family at Christmas.  Whew!  It's a lot to fit into the last few weeks of the year.

All of this is to say that after today's party, I will be taking a social media vacation for the remainder of 2023.  Don't worry, I'll be back in 2024 refreshed and ready to see all of your creations!

So, let's check out the final party highlights for 2023!  Yvonne at Quilting Jetgirl linked up this beauty-

*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!  :)
