Pre holiday craziness!

So only a few days until Thanksgiving and my plans have all gone topsy-turvy, catawompus, or just generally turned upside down and sideways....
                                                                   Set of vintage blocks that I'm putting together...
What was going to be a quiet few days in Charleston and Edisto Beach has turned into a home-stay holiday complete with weekend guests and a full table for dinner!  Yikes...
                                                                          Sprigs and Stars in process....
So today I am making the lists (love lists!) and am preparing for a week of cooking and cleaning  (love cooking...cleaning, not so much)...which means projects like the sprigs and stars in the photo above need to get off the dining room table, into a box, and then hopefully somewhere that I can find them again the first week of December.  How I wish I had a larger studio! (but don't we all!!!)

The good news is I did find some of the mint chocolate chips for my favorite holiday cookies - Mint Snowtops!  They only distribute these around the holidays so I have to stock up when I find them!

Poor Mac...all this activity has already worn him out.....

Wow, that is a total turnaround! Hope you are able to do it all without overdoing.
Love Sprigs and Stars!
I've never noticed these chips. Now I will have to go looking.

Love your bowties and sprigs and stars. They are so lovely. I've never seen the Mint Chocolate Chips---will have to look for those. :)

Mint chocolate chips? Oh wow! Would I actually have to make cookies with them, or could I just eat them straight from the bag. LOL Enjoy your company.

I started a bowtie quilt some time back. Hand piecing it, using "whimsical" fabrics (like Garfield, or large veggies!). It'll be a fun quilt! I love your Sprigs & Stars!
