December Finish and WIP

Hello campers!
It's December!  I totally blew November off for posting.  We finished off October with soccer.  The Sr. High team took Third Place in the Gold Division for Nationals.  This was Chris's last year on the team and a mild concussion during the third game kept him from finishing out the tournament.
Here he is with their trophy, and thankfully, he's all over the symptoms of his concussion now!
November was a crazy month!  Homeschooling is one of the best things we've ever done, but it's time consuming!  We hosted Thanksgiving for hubsmuffin's side of the family and my Mom and Dad joined us this year.
Here we are relaxing after the turkey and ham were eaten, dishes washed, chairs put away and company gone home.
Thanks to the hubsmeister, I got to have some sewing time over the weekend. 
Another sweet repurposing of a vintage hankie into a basket to hold goodies around the house.
Flower Sugar, Ruby, scraps and leftover linen from the Linens Quilt.
Which is still in progress, just put up to work on after the New Year.  This was because my sewing area is in the living room and needed to be organized and cleaned before our Thanksgiving company came.
Having time to cruise Pinterest is dangerous!
Out came the scraps!
Some fun blocks using the colorway as inspiration.
Can't wait to get back into the swing of things and peeking at what all the other bloggers out there are working on!
