Little bits here and there...

Slow progress on my Christmas Sampler. I've got the setting triangles in place. Next up is the green sashing between the rows.

Here is a 10-minute table runner; it is beautiful!
 I made another table runner using left over Christmas charm squares from another project. I had to try out the Curve Master Presser Foot that I bought for a dollar at an estate sale this summer. It works! No need to pin the curves, just use the special foot!
When I found a piece of flannel at Goodwill, I knew I could whip up a pair of pj pants; I found a nice red fleece top with a red tag ($1.29!), and voila...a new set of pajamas for under $5. Hooray for me!

Another doll jacket. This is Kit modelling a warm white fleece coat, perfect for those cold winter days.
 And look what was harvested from the garden! Lovely lovely carrots, extra sweet now because of the recent frosts. The ground does not freeze here, so the carrots stay in the ground until we eat them. There are still more out there!

Wow,,,you have been busy.
First, your Christmas sampler is going to be beautiful. I love the advent candle wreath block.
2ndly you really scored on the fabric and new pj's. Now I can hardly go by the Goodwill without thinking "maybe I should stop and see if there's any new fabric!" You've got me hooked!
and last, those carrots are so pretty it's a shame to eat them but...
Happy New year.
