Tuffets!





Instead of sewing little quilts for our December's A Year of Schnibbles challenge, we got to sew these little tuffets...or pincushions...or coasters...or doorknob hangers. Cute, aren't they?


A couple weeks ago, Superman had meetings in another town, and my Bernina and I tagged along. All week, I sewed and Christmas shopped. That was it. That was enough.  :) It was a gift of time from the Lord, because I had been asking for His mercy in getting everything done in time. He cares about everything and hears our every prayer!!!!


It was nice to return home with a huge jump start! And, everything did get completed before Christmas. I was amazed and thankful! 

It's almost 2010, ready or not, here it comes!!!!

These are so cute! Little, and cute!
I'm glad you had the bit of down time. God is always, always so good to us.

How cute! And how wonderful to have a whole week just so sew and shop! It must have felt great to be so prepared for Christmas. The ability to pray is such a blessing!

I really like how your Tuffets turned out. I am working on mine. This has been such a busy month.

SO CUTE! Is that a sewing room doorhanger with the measuring tape fabric?
Isn't it wonderful that our God cares about giving us just what we need when we need it. You got much needed down time while still crossing jobs off your list thus calming the Christmas stress in two ways... WONDERFUL!
