Oh My, It's November!

I cannot believe it is November already!  Why does that strike a fear of being late deep inside of me?
Perhaps it is because Christmas is right around the corner?!  I have been busy, I promise that I have.  However, it seems as if there is never enough time to feel totally prepared for "the day".

I recently completed a very special lap quilt for my dear Daddy.  I was thinking of saving it for a Christmas giftie.  Unfortunately, he got a glimpse of it beforehand and nagged me and nagged me until I finished it and gave it to him.
Here he is with it.  He is quite pleased to have something keep his toe-sies warm.  It turned out larger than a traditional lap quilt but smaller than a twin size.  Now, what do I make him for Christmas?

You see, it is a tradition for me to make most of the family gifts.  I purchase what nots and small gifts through out the year to add to their haul.  I need to get that sewing machine humming again.  Hmmmmmm, goes my brain. Stay tuned.
