Things I got done over Thanksgiving weekend

Well, you know I work in spurts. These are the items I've been able to accomplish this weekend...

The big girls have new red dresses for the holidays, so I decided to make one for the baby...

My niece is almost a year old, so I made her this taggie quilt and some puzzle balls for Christmas. The puzzle balls are the Jinny Beyer patterns. I have the templates but not the book. (Some of the templates I can't figure out how they go together, but these work!)

And, in my guild we do charity quilts. The coordinators have decided to hand this teddy bear around to a 'winner' each month. Not sure what the criteria for getting it is, but I got is last meeting. (I turned in a bunch of the quilts from Retreat where I repurposed/put together recycled blocks.) When they gave him to me, they said I could add to his outfit... I added the mini-block pin. It's the same pattern as our guild name badges.

That's it for now...not sure what's next. Gotta stay on my roll, though

The Puzzle ball instructions I saw recently were completely different and probably not very (young) child safe.
Your puzzle balls look complicated to fit exactly.

The taggie quilts are very cute - look like a great drag around quilt.

I'm not sure if you were the winner or the loser of the bear - I'm guessing as the winner - you are like the Energizer Bunny- you just keep on making charity quilts, you keep going and going.......:)

You have been very busy. Love the puzzle balls. I have the book if you would like to borrow it.
