Squidoo Hopping--This Week's Theme is Gift Guides


Gift guides are the thing on squidoo right now with Christmas right around the corner!
I've made one new lens and have 2 more that I hope to get done soon.
I've changed the topic of my Grandma's Christmas Wishlist lens to a gift guide.

If you've been building gift guides, or already had some built, please share one or two on them in the linky below.   Don't forget that if you've written a blog about squidoo to also link it up as well.

I can't wait to see everyone's gift guides and blog posts.

WIP Wednesday--Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

It's past time for me to be serious about my crafting----and this time stick to it!

I've been so super busy away from home that my blog has been neglected.  I took photos for last week's post then got busy and didn't get the post done!

Here is the photo of what I am calling the never ending quilt top for sewing club at church.  I'm going to make a real effort to work on this at home too in hopes of moving it along on being done.  I'm not getting far for sure working on it only once a month at church.  We met twice this month.

I am making these little strawberry pin cushions for quilt guild.  They go in each goody bag that will be given out at the door at our quilt show in July of next year.  I have 5 more to make.

It's past time for me to get serious about finishing up projects that I have started in my 2 UFO drawers.   This is a baby quilt with Bambi.  My first try at machine quilting since I now have a new machine and a walking foot.   I pinned it and have about half of the quilting done on it since taking the photo.  

I was able to finish up some baby bibs and fabric bags over this past week.  I am still working on knitting the prayer shawl for church but forgot to take a picture of it last night.  I have one more skein of yarn to put in.

I'm behind on my granny a day challenge.  This is my blanket so far up to October 29, Day 283. I hope to have my days caught up to post this time next week!


I am linking up with the following blogs:

Homeschool Journal--We've been on Hiatus!

We've been on hiatus from many things!  It looks like I've not even written a blog post since October 5th.  Wow!

Life has been just crazy.  First Jasmine was working at the state fair, then my oldest daughter followed the state fair to Oklahoma so we had her 5 children for 2 weeks.  That would have been awesome if I was also homeschooling them, but alas, the father of the 3 oldest says no.

Last week was Jasmine's 16th birthday.  You know 16th's are special so we did a lot of planning and preparing for her party, including driving out of town to pick up my middle daughter and granddaughter so they could be here for her day.

It was rather funny.  One of the things that Jasmine spent some of her birthday money on was a word search book.  At a lull between decorating for the party and such she sat down and started working the word searches.  Her boyfriend called me over to point out that she was learning doing the puzzles.  Each one had a theme such as horses, authors, etc.  I thought it was rather neat that he is seeing the learning outside the classroom and textbooks.  Yes, he goes to public high school.

They are also learning music in youth group.  Jasmine is learning to play the bells for a program they are doing.

I will end today sharing some photos from her birthday party.
