Turkey Trotting

I'm back in Pennsylvania after a fantastic time in Ohio and Michigan. And lots of time in the car in the last 7 days.

I don't know if I mentioned this before, but every time I drive out of state, I drive in rain. Every. Single. Time. I guess its better than snow.

But my time at home was pretty relaxing, with lots of time spent hanging with my family and lots of time digging through my mom's scrap bin and sewing and hitting up quilt stores. Look at what I collected for my civil war quilt stash!

I collected the leftover fabric from one of my sister's projects to use for my own project. I bought two patterns from Cluck Cluck Sew on Black Friday when patterns were half off! I got the Seville and Basket Case patterns and I am going to use the fabric left over from her floral wall hanging for the Seville pattern. I am pretty excited.

I also have been making a large pile of snowball blocks of pinks, blues, and purples. I was originally just going to use them as snowballs, but I have been having some other ideas related to what the colors remind me of, but I don't want to give it away just yet. But I think I have almost a hundred of them. Winning!

Today was my first day back at the lab and we were all working on a grant proposal but now I'm home, making homemade meatballs. Yum!

Hope you are all recovering from your Thanksgiving festivities! Less than 30 days to Christmas!
