A Little Bit of This and a Sneak Peek of That

The past week or so, the weather in New Jersey has been amazing. Temperatures were in the high 60's and low 70's. It's been very hard to stay inside for very long. It just doesn't feel like November . . . or the start of the holiday season. It's been really hard to stay inside and sew, when the nice weather is beckoning me to play outside. So, while I've been busy sewing on projects, I've also been enjoying the nice weather we've been having.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the sewing I've been doing. Kind of like Santa in his workshop. . . only it's Denise in her studio. . .

On my cutting table: there's a mystery quilt in the makings and a baby quilt as well.

My sewing machine has another mystery block in progress.

I'm super excited about these little goodies. I designed a little pattern yesterday and sewed them up today. My little yorkie guys were great little pattern fitters for me. Wait until you see these!
You will LOVE  LOVE LOVE it!!

This little house sits outside of my front door. It was looking a little sad and beat up.
I gave it a fresh coat of paint.

It was so warm out, even the azaleas were confused.


It was so nice out, I even raked leaves. The lawn guys usually do the leaf raking for me, but even yard cleanup was enjoyable in the warm November sun.

And of course we took a lot of walks. Although, looking at this picture from the start of one of our walks, it's a wonder we got anywhere. Those leashes are wrapped around my legs. We've just barely gotten out of the front door.

Back inside I "decked the halls".


Looks like Santa brought me an early Christmas present!


I even got . . .holiday tissues!

Stay tuned for a more detailed look at those projects I've been working on. Cause baby it's cold outside . . .again!
