Getting ready to go

I have been having trouble keeping on top of things like blogging lately. I am blaming it on the fact that we are leaving for Disney World on Monday morning.
I thought I would share with you a few of the projects I have been working on before we leave.
My daughter is going to a birthday party later today, it's her first sleepover! She asked me to make her friend a pencil case. She picked out the fabrics and decided on the font and thread colour for the embroidery. I think it turned out pretty good. We went to Dollarama this morning and bought a few goodies to put in there.
Last weekend I worked on some of my Christmas embroidered blocks. I now only have 3 more to do and then I will be able to start planning the layout for the quilt. I am hoping to make a wallhanging for my dining room.

I have also been working on my Granny Squares. I am done the blocks and assembling the top. It will be a very nice lap quilt when all is said and done.

So I won't be sewing for the next week as we will be visiting with our friends Mickey and Minnie. But hopefully when I get back I can get back to some kind of routine and fit some blogging in there on a regular basis. I miss you guys!
