Cinderella has always been my favorite Disney film. I've shared Christmas with Gus and Jaq for many years - they were a 'fun meal' treat one Christmas season when my kids were small. We were shopping one evening and stopped at McDonald's for a quick dinner. After all these years, I still remember that evening - the teenage server let me have one of each ornament even though they were supposed to be dispersed on alternate weeks. I was grateful that he bent the rules for me (and I still am)! I've passed many of our family ornaments to my kids (with families of their own), but the Cinderella mice stay with me. They always coax a smile when I unpack them from the ornament box (and I'm a little sad to wrap them up on New Year's Day).
We took a road trip to Austin over Thanksgiving - it's a longggg trip. Hubby was a good sport and stopped at Common Threads on the way home (even though we still had 20 hours of road time ahead). They were having a great sale - lots of bolts at 50% off. I had too much fun!
And to add to the damage, I placed on on-line order just before we left. I've noticed a change in my fabric buying lately - I'm adding more lights to the stash. I tend to gravitate to mediums and darks.
The top fabric is the butterscotch version of the fabric I purchased about a month ago in a faded rose color (Jo Morton Complements by Andover). I had a hard time deciding between the two colors in the quilt shop. Lucky me! I found the butterscotch on sale on the web.
There is some sewing going on at my house (between holiday prep and my 'day job') - sewing the binding on a bed quilt and working on the Twinkling Pinwheels (think I've settled on a game plan for this one).
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Peaceful New Year! I know it's a little early, but 'just in cases' (Love Actually). Thanks for stopping by!
