Racing the Clock

It's been a bit crazy around here!
I am in a full panic trying to get crib bedding done for a friend who is due very soon.
It doesn't help that it's Thanksgiving week and I am hosting 12 adults and 15 children for dinner.
Lot's to be done!

For Stacey's crib quilt I used Oh Fransson's pattern Small Plates.
It's from her book.

It remains my favorite quilting book to date.
Every single project in it speaks to me!
If you don't have a copy I highly recommend you treat yo'self (Parks and Rec anyone?)

Aside from cooking a big 'ol turkey I am dying to make these appetizers!

Cranberry Salsa Dip

What about you guys?  
Are you sewing or cooking this week?
Or both?


  1. i love the chevrons! i think they look so great! i love the quilt. what line of fabric is it? i also really want to try out that cranberry salsa! mmmmm! and for my week... i am cooking a little and sewing a lot. i am trying to start and finish a quilt for my mom by thursday. wish me luck!

  2. Nicke by Thursday??? You crazy! I'm glad I'm not the only one ;-) This fabric is Secret Garden by Sandi Henderson. I love all of the different color ways that it comes in. Plus we added some Cabernet by Patricia Bravo and 3 different Chevron's from Premier Prints.

  3. I love the chevrons! And see..that's why I can sew all week...I'm not having a gazillion people over :-) All I have to make are mashed potatoes and cranberry fluff. Good luck!!

  4. I love the way your quilt is turning out. It looks fabulous!
    Woah - 27 people for dinner, I'd be freaking out by now! Good luck!

  5. I finished up some sewing yesterday and then it's non stop cooking until Friday when I can sew again. Somewhere in there I need to start some Christmas stuff, but I also need to sleep.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  6. Loving the chevron in the quilt! Good luck this week Lu.

  7. ALWAYS both - my oldest recently told me she needs a tiny sewing machine to put in her play house :) Thanks for the great giveaway over at The Idea Room - I have a deep-seated addiction to fabric and love yours - maybe I'll win - fingers crossed!
