Sew & Tell and Finish it up Fridays

                           in all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight  Proverbs 3:6

This week has been a little more productive in the sewing area of my life than the past 2 weeks, Jim was off for about 2 weeks and I did no sewing...with small orders that came in and gifts I want to make, I was panicking a little bit....(okay, actually A LOT!)
so this week with Jim going back to work and Zach went back to school after Thanksgiving, I got these little burp cloths done for my sweet friend Libby who is having a little girl soon, Libby has the BEST eye for color combinations, so I knew I better choose something  cute with great colors, so I went with the Riley Blake Quite Contrary by My Minds Eye would be perfect for little Chloe :) they are backed with a type of chenille that is sooo soft, I will be making more of these. Also finishing up another tote for a friend and a baby girl quilt :)
I am linking up with Amy's Sew & Tell Friday, have you been there to check out the other projects shared? if not, go! you will be inspired! I used to post over there but then Fridays got soo busy with Jim being off on Fridays but I am working it out so that I can play along more frequent now! I have missed sharing over there! plus my friend KT is being featured there! Also linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Fridays, this is my first Friday over there, (been a fan of her quilts forever though!) so it will be fun to start playing over there too!

How was your Thanksgiving? ours was good, simple and easy going with lots of cooking, If Texas Roadhouse would have been open, I was tempted to tell everyone to meet there to eat and then bring pies to my house, but they were closed, so I cooked, and baked and baked and cooked more! lol it was totally worth it and I do love to cook/bake. Here are a few pictures of the family from different days :)

of course a dog (1 of our 4) always has to sneak into a family picture

Zach and I ran the Turkey Waddle Thurs morning, it was a lot of fun, I ran my fastest 5k! (yay me!)
Zach ran really good  too, considering getting over pneumonia, he did great!

well I have a lot of sewing catch up to do...I best get busy!
