More Trivets

That's right.  I am making even more trivets.  
Although I do see this coming to an end in the near future. 
 I still have 4 more (I think) to make for a few more people.  
Here are the two I worked on yesterday, and they still need binding.

This nativity print was one from a while ago at JAF. 
 Isn't it cute?  
The Holiday Happy by the Happy Zombie seemed a good fit for the triangles around the Nativity. 
 I think if I make this one again I would choose different fabric for the first 2 rounds of triangles,
 but I love the nativity!


 Then Kelsey came home and wanted me to make a trivet for her to 
give to her "NC mom" to thank her for all the nice things she does for her. 
 Kelsey chose the center fabric but I really like how this one came out too.


My scrap bin has been overflowing so
 I decided to work on some scrappy blocks to see what I can use up.  
A long time ago I had seen someone put cut off triangles on the corners of a square
 then sew them together.  
I thought I would give that a try.  
I really love the look, but it doesn't use up those triangles very quickly!  
I have a lot of that cream fabric so thought I would use that for the squares. 
 I will keep you posted on this.


While I was on the computer Fatty McFatty (Aiden) decided to keep me company.  S
he really is a sweet cat.


As I got up to start wrapping presents I looked out on my deck and saw this fat little bugger. 
 Just look at his belly!!! 
 He did not even move when I opened the door.  


He ate every single apple off my apple tree this year.  


I guess he is ready for the winter!  Hey... maybe that's my problem too?!

I hope you are all getting ready for the holidays. 
 We are all set except for cookie making and a few more groceries.

Your trivets are very cute. Wow he is a chunky squirrel. We have lots of them, but none as hefty as that one.

oh yeah - i needed me some Aiden lovin' this morning - mmhmm...

you with trivets, me with microwave-a-bowls - i think it's just cuz i like to actually FINISH something every once in awhile...

i do NOT like skwerls - they are rats with bushy tails - but at least yours actually ATE the apples instead of tasting each one and then throwing them on the ground...

how's the 'Stoner feeling? and are you having fun yet?!?
