    Mirabelle--I agree with Ggal, you made GREAT progress on your quilt. The yellow really pops. What accent color are you using for the purple quilt?

    I too got some good FQs to add to my stash. I am going to make a couple Christmas table toppers using the raw edge applique Lynne told us about this past weekend. We got a KT Christmas mini-charm pack (2 1/2" squares) from her and I was able to find a matching charm pack on the way home yesterday, oh and bought yardage for borders too, so have everything I need but backing. I did pretty good not buying too much even though we went to 10 shops in 3 days! Maybe I will win a new sewing machine (shop hop grand prize)...wishful thinking!!

    I found a cute sewing box made from an old drawer for my dd for her birthday. Then got a couple FQs to match the fabric lining to put inside. I'll add some other sewing essentials she doesn't have yet (she'll be 11 in November). I'll get a couple pictures as I unpack before hiding it...I think it will be hard not to give it to her early.

    Love all the 'eye' candy, CarrieM, of all the blocks you have posted today. It is nice to have postings to read again on this site...Friday and Saturday did not have much to read or see...love it when there are several postings to view. Makes my day a little brighter. I needed a break from the white ornamental peaches I am trying to work up, but I am soooo slow. Then on to the pears....and I thought having an orchard was a good idea back in 2005.

    Turkey hens have now developed blue heads...lovely blue shade. I did not know they did that. Toms have red heads.

    A little more eye candy for you...here is the sewing box/drawer and a few pictures of some of the FQs I got for myself and dd.

    For the FQs in the last pic I got a little more of the stripe for binding and flower for border. Most have metallic gold.

    Ohhh photos of those blue headed turkeys, please QNS!!! I don't envy you the fruit to process either. I did several batches of applesauce from our little apple trees bounty! Thank goodness it is a dwarf.

    Carriem I am using yellow also, although mine is a bit darker. I am also using a mixture of creams for my background so my quilt will be not be as crisp as the blue and white.

    I have photos to share of our drive up the mountain but will have to post them tomorrow as the file is too big and failed. Ds will be over tomorrow so will get him to shrink the files for me.
