Well, it's "do anything I want to do" day! I look forward to Fridays! Today I am going to be working on some Christmas string blocks. I have quite a few Christmas fabrics and so I am doing some Christmas strings for a small swap. Here is a pic of 2 of them which I have not trimmed yet. Hmmm..........the picture seems to be a bit dark.........sorry about that!

I have also still been making coasters. I cut loads of 4 1/2" squares to make coasters, so I am still trying to get all those made. I hope to make a set for each of my co-workers by Christmas..........44 sets of coasters. I should probably make at least 2 sets each week to be sure that I get them all made. They are easy and very useful.

My husband's mom is in the hospital in Bonham with pnuemonia. She is 89 years old and not doing well. Several years ago, she had an episode where she mistakenly drank some Pine-Sol thinking it was apple juice and very nearly did not pull through. It left her lungs quite scarred and pnuemonia is the last thing she needs. We went to Bonham last night and will be going back tonight or tomorrow. DH is having a very hard time with this and I feel so sorry for him. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
On a lighter note.........I am LOVING this cold weather we are having! I just wish we would get some snow. Snuggling under a quilt in cold weather is the best!
Okay, off to sew some! Make it a great day!
