Holiday Update

Hi Peeps! Time has escaped me once again but I assure you I'm still here...albeit not on blogger.
I have been quite busy preparing a mini shop update and here are the fruits of my labor....

A strip pieced table topper...
A festive table runner using a Flurry by Kate Spain charm pack. I really love this one!
Plus, 4 holiday mug rugs. Here are two of them!

Just a little holiday merriment. I can hardly believe we'll be eating turkey next week and then trimming a tree oh-so-soon. Eeeep! I still have holiday gifts to make! Where are you in your holiday gift making? Please tell me I'm not the only one who is behind!

Last week I took a quick trip out of town so, sadly, I did not make any FWQAL blocks. But! This week the guilt got to me so I whipped up two of them.

This one is block 48, Homeward Bound. Pretty straightforward to put together.
Here is block 47 Homemaker. I love this one! Not gonna lie though, this one was a little tougher to put together since it involved some curved piecing. Whew! I was a little nervous it wasn't going to come together so nicely.
I can hardly believe I am almost at 50 blocks! This has been a really great QAL so far!
Tomorrow is Friday! Any exciting weekend plans?

I love the idea of your "mug rugs." What a cute way to keep a cheery bit of quilt with you at all times! Unfortunately, I had no exciting weekend plans. Have been fighting off a terrible chest cold and so I just rested all weekend. Literally. I slept almost non-stop! Crazy thing to have to do so close to the holidays. Hoping I catch up on things this week. :-)
