{Post 1,509} 1,860 Pieces Strong

This is pretty much what we have had all week. It didn't seem Christmas-y, but we had a lot of Christmas spirit at our house.  So busy that I didn't take many photos.

I have become friends with one of my blog readers.  She said she was going to send me a "few scraps" to add to my tumbler quilt.  Imagine my surprise when I opened the box below (and notice the promise inside the lid, which does NOT seem to be working).

I used some time this AM to add a few rows to the top of my tumbler quilt.  Here it is, 31 rows wide.  It now measures about 90" wide by 62" long.  I am shooting for around 108" long, so I am about 2/3 of the way there!

We are off this afternoon for a very quick turnaround of a vacation.  Even though we only have 2 children at home, one is a commuting full-time college student and the other is working 30 hours a week.  Today and tomorrow were the only days all 4 of us could go.  I am looking forward to some car sewing time and a wonderful trip.

Hope your Christmases were bright.
