Rushing the year...

I know I should be getting ready for Thanksgiving but all I want to work on is Christmas things!

At the show in last month I picked up these Scottie ornaments. I don't usually support cutting up vintage fabrics but for Scotties I'll make an exception....
6 inch random pieced/crumb pieced blocks
I'm battling my autumn allergies. The first few days of taking the meds make me very sleeping so not too much done the last couple of days. I am working on making a few more little quilts and spending a lot of time doing some random piecing to reduce the scrap pile. Also a new Christmas wallhanging. Much brighter than my usual decorations...photos later....

Cute little Scotties.
So sorry about the allergy issue. My fall allergies go from the beginning of August to the beginning of October. Once we have a good hard frost I'm usually good to go. I react the same way you do to the meds, but the drowsiness never thoroughly goes away until I quit taking them--even the "non-drowsy" stuff. How late in the season do you continue to suffer?

Sorry to hear about the allergies. This has been quite a year for them around me.
