November is Flying by!

Wow, can you believe November is halfway over? Seems like the months have just flown by this year! I have been trying to stay busy with my crafty things. Most of you know that I have been putting together charity quilts this year....this is the next one:
The martians were stitched up by 6 different ladies over the last few months and they did a wonderful job! This quilt will make someone very happy!

This next little piece is a block for a "girly theme" charity quilt. For some reason this little piece took me forever to finish, I just couldn't get interested in it. But now that it's done, I can do a happy dance and say I have a finish...hee hee! I'm hoping to have all the blocks for that quilt soon and if I'm lucky it'll be the next quilt I get to show everyone.
This week I recieved these lovely goodies in the mail......
My name was picked from the "hat" and I won these wonderful magazines and tea from Regina over at:
be sure to check out her wonderful blog when you all get a chance. Thank you so much for the great surprise! I can't wait to try out the tea!
After having one great surprise come in the mail, I recieved yet another via 123stitch. I *thought* it was the package that I had ordered for some exchanges but the surprise was on me....
The message board over at 123stitch is having a secret santa wishlist exchange for the holidays. I received this lovely package from my secret santa. I don't have any idea who she is, but she made my day! It was an absolutely much needed surprise on a very bad day. I had just gotten news that hubby's grandma is passing, so this came at the perfect time. Thank you secret santa, whoever you are!
Well, that's my last 2 weeks or so in a nutshell. Nothing overly exciting, but hey, at least I'm making some crafty progress. :) Hugs to all my stitching family, I love each and every one of you dearly and you all brighten my days when I most need it. Keep those needles smokin!

  3. The martian quilt is adorable! Congratulations to the six ladies who stitched it, and you for quilting it so lovely, Mary! Keep up the good work for this charity cause, which I'm proud to be a part of now. I'm most anxious to see the M.S. Alphabet one completed.
