Hooray!  It is always time for a little happy dance when you finish a project any bigger than a tissue holder, especially when I get to cross it off my TO DO list!  Today's happy dance is coz I finished the two journal covers I was making.  I decided not to quilt any more and not to add anything to the first one.  I think I got used to the way it looks just as it is.  I certainly didn't want t risk spoiling it!

 Thesew will both go in the mail on Monday!  Hooray!
 Just had to show you this pic of my lovely little Maisy.  She is sleeping on the daybed in my sewing room - doesn't she look so cozy!
 And this is what I have been working on tonight.  It is Scrappy Saturday for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and tonight I made some orange kaleidoscope blocks to go with the others I have made thru the year.  Here they are together.  I think I will need to make some more to make the quilt big enough to be useful.  No rush.  That can be a job for later.

I even managed to squeeze in a few more tissue covers.  I am making quite a few of these to poke into Christmas presents.  I am almost using them as leaders and enders.
Till next time.....happy stitching!
