Christmas Past and Presents...

 Last year (or was it the year before) my mom gave me these cute fat quarters for Christmas and I have been hoarding them every since.  I saw a little mini mystery going on over at Temecula Quilt Company and I wanted to join in.  I often think I will get to their cute little minis at some point and never have before.  So tonight I decided to just go for it and make two!
 Apparently each block has one more piece than the one before it!  I am really looking forward to seeing how this fun one comes out.  It only took an hour or so to make all these blocks (twice) so it is quick and fun!

 Earlier I made a Wild and Goosey block.  I have 57 blocks now, it is growing!  One per week--been keeping up pretty good, but not sure that will happen this week or next.  The kids are flying in to Vegas a week from tomorrow, so Kathy and I will head up there early Sunday.  We will spend two night there before heading back here for a night and then up to my Mom's for Christmas.  I am so excited to have all three of my grown kids here (it has been three years!) and we will be having an extra special Christmas!  In Vegas, Hannah and I will see Cirque du Soleil's Mystere and Kathy and Mac opted to go to the Laugh Factory.  Hannah and Mac have never been to Vegas so it will be fun.  Coleman went in May with us, so he will stay here and dogsit then go up to Mom's with us.

I wanted to participate in this when it first came out but didn't. I have a Lexington charm pack I may use for this.
