Racing the Clock

I'm trying my best to get everything done without getting overly stressed. Here is what's been happening at the Novak household:

I won the SMS giveaway at Field Wonderful...


I made a yoyo necklace from this tutorial...


We made sushi at home using all of Charlie's birthday presents...


And Jaxon got in on it, too, but didn't eat much sushi...


I made preschool teacher gifts, including a cup insulator, some fancy cocoa, and a gift card to a local coffee shop...


My scrappy Christmas quilt is back from the quilter, and it is GORGEOUS! The picture obviously does not do it justice (click to see larger)...and I hope to have it bound by Christmas...


This little peek is a gift for Charlie (who doesn't visit the blog so I am safe). Let's see if I can get it quilted and bound before gift giving commences....


...and finally...

GLITTER BELLS!!! I got lazy and didn't glitter the jingle balls (yes I meant balls). But they are shiny and retro so I love them.


Also, I have one of the charity tree skirts back and I am binding it now. I'll be ready to auction when the last one arrives, but it doesn't look like it will be before Christmas. Would you bid on a Christmas quilt for charity after Christmas has passed??

Great job! I just got a quilt back from Margaret, too! I had a Turning 20 quilt top I made ages ago. That will be bound post-holidays, though my daughter has already slept under it once.

Love the christmas quilt with the white like that! might go and do something similar with my blocks and make a lapquilt out of it (with some additional blocks of course too...).

So totally not had the time to do anything yet but it has been on my mind! Just love the way you have done that one!!

Merry Christmas!

Eeeeek! I LOVE your aqua bells -- they're adorable -- don't you love them??? And that quilt! Ohmygosh -- I can't wait to see it all done -- love the fussy cut squares. Cute shot of Jaxon and his sushi too!

Sew much eye candy in this post! Love all of it (well, maybe not the sushi! LOL)...

Merry Christmas to you and a fabulously fun filled New Year!

OK. I admit the aqua bells are better than the red Walgreen's specials.

How did the letter to Santa work out for you?

Beth said...

wow, how productive! I love those bells, I have been decorating a lot of christmas-y stuff in blue this year.

Jackie said...

Your Christmas quilt is GORGEOUS! I love that you placed a star and tree here and there. Wonderful!

You've been busy!

Have a happy and safe holiday!

Cheryl Arkison said...

Merry Christmas! And yes, I would bid on the quilt, there is always next Christmas!

Allison said...

Your scrappy Christmas quilt is fabulous! Thanks for posting about the button necklace!

Hi there! I'm Marigold from Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky! and I did the tutorial for the yo-yo-necklace that you mentioned in this post. I've *just* started a Flickr pool for completed projects based on and/or inspired by my tutorials and blog entries, and I'd love to have you post your completed necklace in the pool. The Flickr group can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1309748@N20/
Thanks so much, and I hope to see your project in the group!
