It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

well, not exactly in the deep South, but you know what I mean. We are, gulp, 5 months out from Christmas! So, my dining room is looking a little rough with all kinds of Christmas goodness coming together.

Right now, I have cut out pieces to make a certain someone a lap quilt.

And now I am in the middle of cutting up thrifted shirts for a Smokey Mountain Stars Quilt from the
Quiltville site. This will be a generous couch quilt for someone special.

Beyond that, I have a log cabin lap quilt ready to go (minus binding) for Christmas day.

So, I am making progress toward all of the gifty goodness! But, there is so much to do and so many secrets to keep--hehehe! Good thing I picked up more shirts at the thrift store today. Got some good colors, even some cool greens!

Oh, I love the bag of plaids all cut out and ready to go. Watch out because the thrift store will become very addictive!!
